2nd part: What oil do you use (mostly)

3rd part: Are you happy w/your motor oil choice or will you switch to another oil

Thx

about 300 miles per week

Castrol Edge 0w30

Yeah it's a good oil, but I got some Rotella T6 5w30 for free from Shell as part of a giveaway thing that they were doing to BITOG members (they private messaged some people on here, asked for an address, and it came in a few days). But had I not received this free Rotella, I'd keep using the Castrol smile

Approximately 50 miles per week.

Mobil 1 0w20 (car has only had EP 0w20/AFE 0w20 and AP 0w20)

I like Mobil 1. They were ahead of the game with LSPI/DI engines. However, I like Valvoline's Instant Oil change centers. In time when I don't feel like changing the oil anymore I will go there. I take gf's car there now.

About 50 miles a week. I plan on using Valvoline Advanced Synthetic or Valvoline Modern Engine for my go to oil changing it every 5000 miles or one year.

You people do not drive enough.

Depends on where I do but i would say about 300 miles a week. I have been using Castrol Magnatec lately because I bought all the clearance oil from Advance. I have a bunch of Idemitsu oil next.

About 10 miles a week.

Whatever the OP put in the car before I purchased it. I think he said something about running this oil:
http://www.eneos.us/products/eneos-fully-synthetic-motor-oil/eneos-5w-30/

I'm not going to stick with it. Considering my minimal driving I'll just use a cheap syn that meets the OEM specs.

200 kms a week for work and whatever else I end up doing on my 3 days off? Winter time, if I am not snowmobiling and traveling to snow, it isn't a whole lot more, but in good snow years, I can easily rack up 3-400 kms in a week.

When summer comes, it is that same 200, plus another 250 kms traveling back an forth to our trailer.

I am currently using PP and my wife is using PUP, 5-20 and 5-30, and I have zero plans to change that going forward as it is great oil, based on the UOA's that have been posted here, and with neither vehicle consuming any oil, there is no reason to switch, imo.
I usually find it on sale as well, which is a plus, and it's usually less expensive than another popular oil on here. wink

I do around 400 miles a week and my wife does around 300.
We take my car on most weekend shopping and Cincinnati excursions since, as I always tell my wife, we may as well take the one that already has door dings.
I've used HGMO, TGMO, PP and SSO in the '12 Accord over it's now 82K and it's on AFE ATM, as is the '17 Forester on its first run after the FF.
I don't see a great deal of difference between these oils in actual use although the Amsoil might have been smoother at the end of its run than I've seen with other oils.
You can split hairs over NOACK and MRV/CCV as well as moly treat rates along with other adds, but probably any 0W-20 would do about as well as anything I've used.

I drive at least 420 mi/wk just commuting to work(s).
I mostly drive the Fiesta, which continually gets near 40 MPG without even trying, and is running Valvoline SynPower 5W-20 on it's first oil change.
The oil meets Ford's requirements, has low potential for intake valve deposits based on NOACK and that other thing that I forget, and is readily available at a good price. No plans to change.
