People take the 15 seconds to listen to the claim but won't take the 15 minutes to listen to the explanation/proof. Research a product and be wary of where the info is coming from. This applies to ALL products/services.

Royal Purple is junk, huh? Use Mobil 1 instead, huh?

Hmmm......

HERE [in pdf. format] are the results of a test that was performed app. 2008 by an Australian publication [well respected] on OTC oils readily available Down Under. You most probably haven't heard of many brands but RP, M1 and some others are there that you'll know of.

Let me know how the "junk" oil does in comparison to your recommended [beloved] Mobil 1.

Cheers....

Powerblock TV shows a similar test. I thought RP tested better because they're a sponsor of the shows, but it looks like there may be something to it...

didn't look at the results, but there is a point of diminishing returns. there may indeed be add protection from RP, but is it needed in a daily driver and is it worth the extra money says the guy who pays extra penzoil ultra. as to their oil filter, oil mfg generally do not mfg oil filters, do not assume that if you decide RP is a great oil that their labeled filter is as good as their oil, do your own research.

Royal Purple manufacturers their own oil filters.

IMHO, nothing on the consumer market compares.

from what I've read, rp filters are fully synthetic and are made by champion labs. and seem to rank high in tests.
