Yeah I saw this in the AAP ad.... It is not too shabby actually. For a regular everyday deal.

I believe the Fram Titanium or Force filter will be part of their typical oil deals... Which would be not all too different price wise vs another big store.

I called RP yesterday to inquire about the base stocks in the API licensed oils and iust realized I received a prompt voice message from a Jody in their Tech department:

"Hello Warren,
Although the exact lubrication formulations are proprietary, ALL RP consumer motor oils except for our engine break-in oils, consist of premuim synthetic base stocks including GrpIV PAO and GrpV esters. This statement applies to all our synthetic oils including the API line."
He advised I could call back or email if I had more questions.

If it make's YOU feel better. smile

But it's meaningless.

Like RP's Synerlec Sulfur compound in their HP street line - that makes long drain acidification almost a certainty

Looks at old VOA -- the sulfur PPM is off the charts.

Sorry for the bash post, but i have found this oil worthless.

If its working good for you currently Yipee!

But It bet it's not purple anymore after a week in the sump.

Their standard line synthetic Royal Purple is a clone of Valvoline Advanced synthetic. They took the same formula, added some purple dye to it, and put it on the shelf. There's nothing special about it. Royal Purple isn't the company it used to be. Calumet did to them what M+H did to Purolator.

Look at their PDS. I'm hoping the 5w-20 is a typo. That KV100 is a 30 grade, but the HTHS is just 2.6 cP.

I remember corresponding with Pat from RP back in the Synerlec days and he told me all RP oils are a group 4 and 5 mix. I used it in my 300ZX all the time.

The many past UOA showing LOW FP and shearing out of grade said otherwise.

Anybody can tell you anything over the phone.

BUT, Your Z is still running SO can't be all bad, right?

I know there's a lot of apprehension whenever RP is brought up here so I won't banter the topic. This is the 5w30 going in my sump. I know, it isn't a VW508 oil, but that doesn't concern me anymore.

Excellent customer service and pleasant folks. I used RP all the time in my Evolution VIII as well. That thing was putting 362whp down and never missed a beat.

I've used the API and HPS as well with no issues. I'm currently running their HMX oil in the lawn tractor as it's supposed to be a good oil for a 4-stroke engine. No issues thus far with this application as well.

So my opinion is that this is a good deal.
