    Mobil 1 is all I've ever used in the Formula and all I ever will use most likely.

    i, along with lots of peeps on here run pennzoil platinum or amsoil. mobil 1 is overpriced junk. well not really, its okay stuff but not full synthetic like they say it is. run pp or amsoil and you'll be happy

    I wonder how many of these higher priced oils are exactly the same as some of the lower priced (like the napa brand) oils.. We'd all shit if we new the truth...Anyways I run Pennzoil PLatinum also.

    last i knew sarges take ( resident oil guru) was PP 5w30 as the best CHEAP synthetic u can use.....theres always better oils to run but your wallet will suffer.....use pp and change it every 3k and dont worry about a thing.....i use mobil 1 but thats only because i cant find a 15w50 PP at my local walmart ..i run a heavier oil as to LPE's recommendations for my mods..as for filters its best to stay AWAY from fram...anything else should be fine
