Based only on the attributes shown below, which oil would you choose and why? (Nothing scientific here, just something to discuss):

Is there any data on:

1) Oil spec ?
2) Price ?
3) Ease of obtainability ?
4) TBN ?

If i had to choose one based on the above data, I guess I’ll go with “Oil A” simply because it’s the first choice and my horoscope today says that I should be impulsive and make quick decisions when the moon is half-full and Mercury aligns with Venus in the night sky.

Why are the fuel %'s so different? Almost looks like an exponential trend considering the % to mileage ratio on oils D and E.

If all oils were treated the same service wise, it's a draw between B and C IMO.

This there is no information on oxidation, shear, TBN, engine and driving style. With what we have I'd say all the same.


make the inside of your engine oil cap white.
