I disagree. Less the additives it's the same out of the truck into the station's tanks, but to trust billybobs gas shack over a chevron to have those tanks checked often and free of contaminants is insanity.
The last time I got a bad tank of gas from a chevron: never.
From billybobs gas shack in podunk N/S Dakota and Montana, all too often.

|hud12||bottom line is ALL OIL has to meet the same specs for manufacturing the only diffierence is what additive pack they use for additonal coverage! eveyone has there own flavor no different then Ford Chevy Dodge or my fav JEEP! it would be very short sided of anyone to say any particular oil is "junk", you may say you do not prefer it, enjoy your day|
|05-25-2013 05:07 AM|
Whether it's clearer in a jar from the start or not, I still will never use that junk, on any kind of a regular basis, and do not anyone other than you, that does. Also, whether it's not parafin based as much as it used to be and I still live in the past or not, Pennzoil is junk!
End of conversation, on my part. Use what ever you wish to use. Same goes to OP. Most oils are decent enough to use, as long as it's a detergent oil.
|05-24-2013 10:37 AM|
Go pour a little of each (Quaker State & Pennzoil) into a clear container and tell us which looks the clearest... you'd probabaly see that the current Pure Base Pennzoil is as clear as (or clearer than) Quaker State or any other good quality engine oil you'll find. I'll guarantee you couldn't look at either and figure out which is which. I don't run either brand, Pennzoil or Quaker State, so I really don't care about either but I know enough about both to know they are as good as the Valvoline I use.

Going to get it changed today, before the long weekend and the ride up north, but it still has almost 900 miles to go before it has 3000 miles on that oil change.
You are the ONLY person I've EVER heard admitting to use that stuff. Can't believe they're still in business even as nobody I know uses it.
To each his own though. If it works for you, cool!!
600 miles a year?! What's the sense of having it? I put that many miles on my Mopar in a week. More on some good weather weeks. Just rolled over 100,000 miles last week and still as strong as day one!

The good ole' "090".
I did Mopar parts for 12 years. First at Brunner in Verona, Wayne Dodge, then 23 Dodge.

Oil is oil as long as you put in the correct amount and correct weight-10W-30 is what I've used. Same goes for the oil filter-as long as it is the correct size and doesn't leak down the road (remember to use a drop on the o-ring before installing).
A couple of tips for DIY changes:
1) Keep an eye on your oil pan drain plug-if the head starts to round or get damaged pick up a new one along with the oil and oil filter.
2) Make sure you do not over-tighten the oil drain plug or the oil filter! Hand tighten both, and give an extra 1/8th turn with a wrench. If you tighten down the oil filter too much you will have one helluva time getting it off come the next oil change.
Hope this helps!

My oil never looks bad, even when it's time for a change.
EDIT: Just saw Jerry's response to your post.

I use VR1 dino. they had a sale at orielly for 3.99 per qt
High zinc non high milage for flat tappet engines
|05-23-2013 07:31 AM|
9 quarts and 300 miles?
Something there has to be a typo?
Use 4.5 quarts of good ol' QS 10w30 and change oil every 3000 miles in my 66 Plymouth Satellite.
|05-23-2013 07:27 AM|
No need for any of the highly over rated synthetic or high mileage oil either.
|05-23-2013 07:04 AM|
Here you go. 69 chevelle with a 425 HP small block, 12 bolt with 4.10 gears and a spool, th350 with full manual valve body.

|kfdjason7620||I use the Napa semi synthetic and Napa filter, been using it for years now. And change every 5k miles|

|hud12||I agree with most previous suggestions in terms of oil, however i dispute the "whatever is on sale"! Motors are like humans internally what you put in is what you get in return, if you continually change product your engine becomes uncomfortable with the inconsistancy, similar to eating healthy then eating some fast food, how do you feel. yes for all of you pokin fun i like transformers and they are human, just gotta treat you prize with love|

|Big Cole||Buy whatever name brand is on sale.|

|Atthehop||I go to Wally World and buy their 5qt jugs of Quaker state when on sale. I have access to OEM filters at wholesale so they cost me the same as any quality aftermarket filter. Just change it often. I do mine every 3k and my last 4 vehicles had original engines at 200k+ when I got rid of themandnone of them were smudged or burned oil. Everyone had an opinion but like they say opinions are like a$$holes.........|

|n00g7||Any high mileage full or 1/2 synthetic would work fine. You can also use regular dino. I use Kendal full synthetic, but I only have 50k on the clock. I change between 5-8k depending on what I've been doing to the Jeep. Usually around 7k. Filter? Whatever they hand you at NAPA when you go pick up some oil.|
|05-22-2013 05:06 PM|
I use Penzoil 10W-30 exclusively in all 4 of my vehicles. I've been using Fram "ToughGuard" filters lately. They seem to do just fine.
Don't fall for any high-priced oil & filter arguments. Just use a name brand oil & filter & you will be fine. Heck, you'd really be fine using a no-name if you want, as long as you change your oil regularly.
|05-22-2013 04:56 PM|
|Dextreme||4qts of any name brand 10w-30 will do. Many of us like Mobil 1 synthetic, but it's overkill.|
