FAA regulations mandate the use of synthetic motor oil in any aircraft for hire.That's good enough for me. I use Mobil 1.

As a pilot who has never heard of that reg, can you provide a link to that particular FAA regulation?

It would be awesome if a poll was taken on subjects like this and a pie chart or other graph in a section of the site could show whats the most popular.

If what is the most popular (what sells the best) also meant it is the best, that would mean that Fram oil filters are the best yet they are now probably one of the worst quality oil filters made. What is the most popular has little or nothing to do with its quality.

I was looking for a decent 10W30 oil, but seems not very easy to find in my country. Somebody from the local Mobil Oil dealer advised me to use Mobil Super 3000 5W40 instead (synthetic oil). The winters are cold (we can get -20 Celsius sometimes, in the mountain areas even below, during the nights) the summers hot (+35, +40 Celsius is very common). Usually I do not drive more than 6000-8000 km/year, so I needed an oil that lasts the whole year. We will see how it behaves. Theoretically should be OK, what do you think?
As for the oil filter, I use Mopar.

Now why did you say that. For the first time I used Fram the other day cause it was a deal together with the Valvoline Conventional Oil. Why are they bad. I use to use STP and another one that stars from "P" but I don't recall.

Hit me with some good filters for next oil change.

I guess when I said most popular I meant amongst the members on this site cause it would be cool to vote and display this info. Plus it would be cool to do this with tires, lifts, etc. Anything hotly debated with quite a few choices.

With Fram's marketing, everyone pretty well assumes they're great so don't feel like the lone stranger on that. What has happened to Fram is they were purchased by Allied Signal quite a while back and their quality took a serious nose dive.

Several of the known good cost-effective oil filters include Wix, AC-Delco DuraGuard, Purolator PureOne, and a few others. Some entertaining reading on oil filters that were torn apart to see their internal quality is at Oil Filters Revealed - MiniMopar Resources
