For everyone that uses something other than Amsoil, I know it is personal preference, however I challange you to study up on what you use. Amsoil destroys the competition in nearly all ASTM testing. Use these test results and stack them up against your favorite oil

I have always gone the cheap route and used whatever was on special at Advanced Auto Parts which was usually pennzoil and a filter for a little over $20. But I just got a new job at Valvoline so I think I'm going to switch to the Valvoline SynPower Full Synthetic oil since I can get a 50% discount for a full service oil change.

someone posted that they used Jiffy Lube for their oil changes, you should know that they have had several stores that have been caught re-using old oil bottles & refilling them with a cheaper product. I caught them trying to put Valvoline in my last truck & I had made sure that Castrol was on the print out, they asked me why it mattered so much, I never went back to that store/shop

as far as oil filters are concerned, FRAM is crap, they use cardboard end caps & they blow out, check the filter chart that is posted above. WIX is a preferred filter, built much better & better flow
Hahahaha! I can't believe Jiffy Lube tried using Valvoline oil! I now work for VIOC and they are our supposed competition. I've also heard that Jiffy lube is a bad place, for the customers and the employees.
