I would like some opinions about my next oil change. Here is what oils I have in my stash: Kendall Gt-1 full synthetic 5w 20, Castrol full synthetic 5w20 (gold bottle) and Milesyn full synthetic 5w20. I will be using a Fram Ultra filter. Getting ready for the hot humid southern summer.

Kendall Gt-1.

Looks like you just updated your signature from Kendall to the Milesyn.

I don't think the engine cares about humidity, and as far as heat, my Jeep laughs at yours. I don't think upstate SC sees 120 like Phoenix does.

NONE of them! I'll be by to pick them up.

Get City Star (banned in Ohio) oil. It's cheap.
