Royal purple vs. Mobil 1

I am going to change my oil in a few days and I was wondering what people are using. I also appologize if this has been asked before, but I want to know what seems to work best. I used to use royal purple in my s-10, but I have heard that the mobil 1 oil has the same performance characteristics and is a little cheaper.

Where can I get amsoil? I had never heard of it until about 5 months ago when I started reading posts on this forum. What is the cost compared to the other oils.

I use Royal Purple in my wife's and I have Red Line in mine. Both are exellent. I used Red Line in my racing engines for years with great results.

Mobil 1...you can't go wrong. Factory filled in Corvette, Mercedes Benz AMG, Porsche, Viper, SRT 10, CTS, STS, XLR, etc...good enough for them, good enough for our GTOs

Just Did My First Oil Change @ 985 Miles, Used Mobil 1. I Don't See How You Can Go Wrong Using It Due To The Fact That Pontiac Recommends It. If You Use Anything Else It May Give A Dealership Reason To Decline Warrenty Repairs. Just Something To Keep In Mind!(check Posts On Rear Ends With Royal Purple)

Change the brand of oil that the manufacturer recommends and you give them an out if you have internal engine problems.
I stay with Mobil 1.

In regard to Amsoil... I constantly ask myself why 99% of all the Professional categories in NHRA dont use it.

Check out sponsorship! You don't use it unless someone pays you to use it. Racing is expensive! Ask GTODealer!

Amzoil is a great product. I have over 30 years of use and a well satisfied customer.
