I just purchased some Valvoline Full Synthetic High Mileage at the Walmart Black Friday sale and now noticed Valvoline Full Synthetic Advanced at the store. Also shown is some Maxlife High Mileage from last year.

The advertising department must be working overtime. Feel free to comment on the differences. ( beyond the obvious grade difference and high mileage aspect of the selected oil) Maxlife vs Full Synthetic vs F.S. Advanced. crzy

Their jugs are the winners. Easy to verify the seal, easy to handle, easy to pour.

Maybe this is Valvoline's response to Rotella's gas Truck and SUV oil and Mobil 1 Truck and SUV? Being "Formulated For Hardworking...Trucks And SUVS" and all. Valvoline also throws in "Cars" as well.

Interesting that they chose to put this on the Advanced Synthetic, I would have thought it would be on the Maxlife. According to Valvoline's own marketing, the Maxlife syn is the most robust oil in the Valvoline lineup, best anti-wear, more additives, etc..

Maxlife High Mileage is just a synthetic blend correct? How is Maxlife High Mileage compared to the full synthetic high mileage?

Yes! The best oil jugs I have ever used. Who ever designed them deserves an award.

I just took my truck and a jug of Advanced into my mech for an OC, when I picked it up I asked him what he thought of the Valvoline jugs and he said he loved them and wished they all where like that.

If I'm not mistaken, that's a requirement by the Canadian gov't for (all) product labeling.

Their lineup is kind of confusing. They had SynPower, now they have Advanced as well as Modern Engine, then they also have Maxlife but also have Maxlife technology in the full syns as well.

Not confusing at all. Syn Power was dropped a couple of years ago and renamed Advanced Synthetic.

What are the differences between Advanced Synthetic and Modern Engine?
