One you drain the oil out of the oil pan the engine has no memory of which brand of oil you were using during the last oil change interval. Change it up as often as you like, you are not stuck using the same oil you did last time.

Imagine what would happen if oil companies had a way to poison your engine so you had to keep using their brand of oil. That would be extortion.

VSP, QSUD, M1, PUP, M1, D1300, D1, PPE … that engine must be some messed up … but runs like new wink

Look at the distributor side of things in Canada. Imperial Oil seems to do a better job at pricing HDEOs when you buy direct, whereas Shell does a bit better with PCMOs.

Believe what you want, I don't care. Fleet UOA tests have shown otherwise.

Logic also backs this up. For example: most oils use Boron/Moly based additives for AW, some use Sodium (Valvoline & Royal Purple). There isn't a single oil that uses all 3 types, prove me wrong.

You mean this $65.99 deal for one average 4.4 ltr jug plus another 1 ltr bottle where they throw in a T shirt?

Fleet UOA tests show what? They certainly will not show wear differences because UOAs cannot do that. What does having all three additives or not having them support? It is simply how additive packs are chosen and formulated by the oil manufacturer. Show me objective and scientific evidence that proves changing oil brands causes more wear.

Will your engine grenade using Mobil oils, I highly doubt it, but I honestly believe many oils exist out there, including Pennzoil, my oil of choice, that are not only cheaper to purchase, but are also a better product.







Well you blew that promise right off the bat and continue to do so.

We've had the 5L jugs up here before, can't recall if it was CT or Walmart, but they were there. Regarding the "deal", I think it's like $39.99 or something when it is on sale? Regular price, for all of them, is insane.

Sorry if my opinion bothers you so much, 4wd. It seems on here, with a few, if you give unfavorable reviews/opinions of something, it gets a bunch of panties in a knot, but yet some are allowed to spew their opinions even if themselves have nothing that can backup or prove otherwise to what is being said.

Also, I have noticed when having opinion or having a different viewpoint on things than someone else's, one can be labeled a hater if that goes against anyone else's narrative. You not find that odd?

How is what I wrote above answering the OP's question with my personal take on things so offensive to you?

Color me wrong, but I thought that is what this site was for? So people could come on here and share their experiences/reasons with regards to many things?

Personally, if I was you, 4wd, seeing how upsetting my posts are to you, I would just refrain from replying to them?

It's not my intent to get a bunch of panties in a knot just by giving my opinion, but I see some are pretty sensitive on here when certain brands of oil are discussed. coffee

Not really … he’ll be back tomorrow with this same stuff …

Love it if you like … Again, I use both of these products and several more … this one only OR you are stupid products business looks way too much like the smoking tire garbage in the banner …and I buy that brand too … not exclusively …
What I have in common with you … is looking for several trustworthy brands when the time is right …
