Quietest oils have been in no particular order... Mobil Super, Pennzoil Ultra, Havoline Pro DS, Cam2 Dexos1 Gen 2 synavex, and Havoline high mileage and Quaker State high mileage 5w30....

Still runs really good... Lots of highway cruising which is easy on the motor and transmission.... Original owner CVT fluid in the car still... No issues.




288k miles on the car now... Still rolling along pretty good.

Napa aka Valvoline oil made for Napa full synthetic 5w30 in the car right now.

Daily Driver 2008 Cadillac CTS 3.6DI currently at 168k miles. Mobil 1 5w/30 since new. Changed to Mobil 1 5w/30 high Mileage at the 100k mile mark. Run the OCI between 5000-6000 and only repairs ever done to the motor was the timing chains under warranty around 55k miles. To date the motor runs strong, no leaks and burns 1/2 qt at the most during an OCI.

2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 4x4 3.6L. Currently has 112k miles, completely trouble free, no leaks no oil useage. Mobil 1 5w/30 since new and went to Mobil 1 5w/30 High mileage at around 80k miles. Run the oil according to the OLM which is an average of 6500-7500 miles.

2006 GMC Sierra Denali 6.0L AWD. Currently 169k miles. No leaks, burns no oil, runs great. Mobil 1 5w/30 since new and went to high mileage Mobil 1 5w/30 around the 100k mile mark. OCI by the OLM which is between 5000-6000 miles.

Mobil 1 has been good to me lol

2011 Camry 2.5/6MT, 197k last I looked, was TGMO for 60k, then Mobil 1 for another 70k or so, lately it's Supertech 5W30 synthetic.

2010 Tundra 4.6/6AT, 155k, bought used so no idea on what was used for 75k, last 75k has been Mobil 1.

1999 Camry 2.2/4AT, 217k, bought used so no idea what was used for 140k, last 75k has been Supertech conventional.

Honorable mentions:

2001 Civic 1.7/5MT, 173k on whatever dealer bulk.

2004 Jetta 1.9/5MT, 314k on various Euro oils. Car was chipped and turbo'd at 255k and driven all the harder afterwards--and was sold in perfect running order. Going from 100hp to 140hp was quite the thrill!

On that list, only the '99 Camry uses a quart or so over 5k, and that might be due to leaks.


2011 Toyota Camry, base, 2.5L/6MT, 203k, hers

My 2008 Hyundai Accent 5sp manual GS with 170k miles

Rusting on the drivers rear wheel arch. A little underneath. The wheel arch had dealer installed rubber striping along the arch edge.

Burns less oil now than it ever has. Using M1 5w30 HM. About a quart every 7500 OCI. I add a half quart at a time.

Replaced the struts and front wheel bearings two years ago. Now the ball joints are shot. Ordered new lower arms, ball joints, stabilizer links and tie rod ends. $100 from Detroit Axle with 10 year guarantee.

Putting that all in over the weekend.

I would love to find a low mile one for a replacement.

2011 Kia Forte 2.0 188k. I doubt it will go much further. Up to 170k used 1 qt between changes with Pennzoil conventional 5w20. Now dropping oil like crazy and motor sounds like it will blow up. Have since used whatever was left over. Owner ran it 3 qts low. Still original transmission never been serviced.

Everything I've owned back to a 1971 Chevelle I've driven past 150,000 miles. Always done my own oil changes and maintenance.

Currently:
2008 F150 5.4L 165,000 miles. Bought new and driven mostly highway miles with loads and a lot of light trailer hauling. Always Amsoil Signature and Ea filters due to the fact that I think the 5.4L valve train cam phasers can be sensitive to oil impurities causing valve train noise and nasty repairs (though frankly I think its not changing the oil per recommendation causing that problem). Runs as quiet as the day I bought it. Just the usual maintenance and a tensioner pulley, radiator fan clutch and power steering line (F150s appear to have paper thin power steering lines as in all my years and cars I've never had one literally rust away).

Other cars of note are:
A 2002 Saab 9-5 2.4L that went 260,000 miles that I just got rid of as it was actually getting unnerving how well it still ran but that's a lot of miles for an Aisin 5 sp auto. Fair amount of repairs in its life but the engine and transmission proved to be bullet proof. Mostly Amsoil euro oil and Wix filters.

1993 Jeep Cherokee 2.5L than finally rusted away at 275,000 miles. I ran every kind of cheap oil and filter in it and it never complained or burned oil. Someone on BITOG once said you could probably put castor oil in those cast iron AMC design engines and it wouldn't matter. Probably true.

As others have said, I think it's mostly about doing maintenance with regular oil changes that gets you longevity though nothing keeps a badly designed/manufactured engine from failing.

My brother has ~340k on a '95 Avalon, which still runs well with no engine repairs I know of yet (other than timing belt jobs). He had an '85 Jetta with nearly as many when he gave up on repairing the shift linkage. The engine was still good, despite running with low oil pressure for years in its youth before VW finally replaced the defective oil pump.

99 Windstar, 3.8L V6 with 320k miles.

Second owner, bought it with 75k on the odometer. I know it's the original engine since I know the first owner. I mostly used Pennzoil or Quaker State conventional, though I did use Valvoline on occasion. Almost always a cheap Fram filter. Always 10w30.

The inside of the engine looked very clean when looking through the oil fill hole on the valve cover. The aluminium casting and rockers had a nice yellow tint, no signs of sludge. Oil was changed every 5,000 miles, but I did let it go to 10,000 on occasion. Engine was compression tested at 280k miles while diagnosing a misfire. All cylinders showed around 150 PSI. Engine did not consume oil until it hit about 275k, then it started to slowly but steadily increase to 4qts between each oil change at 320k.

The engine ran great right up until the van was scrapped. It did have a rattle coming from the timing cover after it hit 300k miles. The van was scrapped after the transmission lost overdrive. Only major repairs to the engine was a water pump change and valve cover/intake gaskets. The engine never leaked a drop of oil.
