Sjstreit, i am going with every one else here and say stick with the dino.. they can easily go 5k miles esp Penzoil, Valvoline Maxlife, Havoline and most major brand labels.. but really its your choice.. i would be more worried aobut your trannies and diffies than i would those motors

Stick with dino and buy what's on sale.

Anything API SM is going to be great for both of your cars, and you will not have an oil related problem.

Mobil5000 clean seems to be the cheapest of the bunch, right after supertech oil.

If you want to run a SOPUS product, then quaker state I think is 50 cents more per 5quart jug than the XOM product.

For your vehicles, the warren supertech lube with a supertech filter would be absolutely fine at 5k intervals.

st synthetic is made by warren PP...if it says wpp on bottom of container...WM sells a 5 qt jug of pennzoil platinum for 20 bucks, a great oil...i think you should go with that...or the mobil clean for 9 bucks..or regular pennzoil for 10.50 a jug....M1 is 22 bucks for a 4.375 quart jug at WM...dino oils are very good...syntheticas last longer and excel at hi or low temps

5-20 reg super tech is made by WPP and it looks like the super tech 5-30 is made by mobil...have you noticed the bottles are shaped different?...at least in NE....i think they are both good oils

ST Syn is $13.49 for 5Qt in Ohio I paid $19-20$ for 5 quarts of PP. That is a decent savings as both are group III ....I was tempted to try the 5W30 in a 5w20 application (4.6 L with 85 K), but was swayed by the legion of PP fans here. I have run the 10W 30 ST syn in a snowblower and generator.

I wish you could see the great condition my 98 Rager is in. I have had it since june 2000. I wax it every 4 months. I keep it in our garage 95% of the time. I change my own oil faithfully every 5000 miles. I have yet had to have my brakes worked on.

The only thing I really need to do as preventative maintance is replace the Sirpintine and Timing belts.

Bottom Line, this P/U is in mint condition. Lord willing I plan to keep it another 10 years! That's why I'm switching to Wal Mart's ST Full Synthetic Motor Oil.

Since 2000, I have made over 10 trips to Lynn Haven Florida {597 Miles} and one to Great Valley NY {651 miles} Averaging 26.5 mpg per trip.

Super Tech is made by Warren Distribution not Exxon Mobil.


Not completely true, it depends on where you are located at. If you were around Virginia IT IS made my Exxon Mobil....my source...MSDS sheets.

Here in Eastern Pa, all the Supertech is made by WPP, except for the 5w-30. Those bottles look like the Exxon Superflo bottles.

I know this is an old thread, but people like me do read them when searching for info.

I just wanted to comment on the post about "not switching an old vehicle to synthetic." I understand the reasons for not switching on old vehicles. I am one of those people who never switched because I was afraid that I had too much sludge in the engine. However, a few months ago, I had to replace a gasket in the engine and the mechanic (family member) got a good look down inside the engine. Said it was clean as a whistle.

So, I switched to Super Tech Synthetic and it runs great. The vehicle is a 1994 GMC 1500 with 220,000 miles. I also always change my oil every 3000 miles and sometimes less.

What I'm getting at is if you have an older vehicle and know you have treated it very well, then go ahead and make the switch to synthetic. I am also very pleased with Super Tech oil and filter.

I just switched to synthetic at 87,300 miles. Not quite as many as your truck, but still up there. Haven't had a problem yet. No drips, oil is still at the full line, and I already have a couple hundred miles with it (only 2 days old).

I switched my 94 SL2 with 115K Miles over to ST SYN, No problems, used only 1Qt/1800. :D

I think the best deal now is the Motorcraft syn blend at 2.87 a quart or 11.50 a 5q jug. But then again a GM may puke a rod running that stuff
