    as we are starting the board again thought I'd solicit a lil poll

    I use mobil 1 even in my lawn mower. The only thing I don't use mobil on is my Fiero due to its oil leaking problem. I also try and only use Purolater Pure ONE Filters.

    Since you guys are so knowledgeable about oil, is Royal Purple really a "better" oil? I also use Mobil One Synthetic and wonder if paying the extra $ is worth it. I'm sure the answer is no, synthetic is synthetic, but hey it doesn't hurt to ask.

    Short answer...no Royal Purple is not "better" oil than Mobil 1. However it depends on your viewpoint here...RP uses heavy doses of Phospherous as a additive.....this is good for cleaning etc. Mobil 1 5-30 thins out to a 20 weight after less than 500 miles.....the friction modifiers are superior in Mobil 1 but the add packs are superior in RP (rust/oxidation/engine cleaning agents etc)...so if you look at Used Oil Analysis you see Mobil 1 has better wear results after 5000-/+ Oil Change Intervals but RP provides better long term protection on engine tear down and ring wear......Me...I use Amsoil 0-30 and KN Filters....love you long time baby
