What is the consenus on using Valvoline 10w-30. Changed the oil today , had Mobil 1 in the Bimby , but the Valvoline was calling out to me. Guess because I see Jerry and alot of other people using it. Dunno did I waste my cash.

I used Valvoline, Exxon, Mopar and other engine oils (10W-40) and never felt any difference.

Valvoline is fine. IMO just pick a brand and weight (10w30 or what your book says] and stick with it plus use a good quality filter. I live down south so I will never use anything thinner than 10w30.

I am still trying to get used to $3.99 a qt oil!

You see all the hype about all the oils but who to beleave? I was looking up some stuff one day when I found a corvette forum that did a test on a bunch of different oils. They had a viscosity testor and no bs. The results suprised me. They tested mobil full synthetic, catrol, and many others. They showed the wear on the rollers or bearings and mobil was one of the worst tested. The top 3= Royal purple, Some other race oil, and the next oil was valvoline durablend. This oil isn't even a full synthetic. I know one thing I only locked up one motor and it was when I tried mobil 1 in one oil change. I will never use mobil again.

If you really want to test your oil...

Blackstone Labs

Quote from their FAQ that cracks me up.

I think $22.50 seems kind of steep for an oil analysis. I know other labs do it cheaper. Why should I pay you $22.50?
Because a person - not a computer - sits down and writes the comments for each and every sample we do. We look at your results and tell you in plain English how your engine is doing. Plus, if you call us you always get a live person, and we're happy to talk to you about your results. Plus, each report is infused with love. Can't you feel it? Feel the looooove!

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president."
