Mobil 1 5w30 Synthetic, put 300,00 plus km's on a Chevy 3.4 no issues ever.
200,000 plus km on a 5.9 Magnum, no issues ever.
2 each 1.6 Geo Trackers 300,000 between them, running 31's and 33's revving like a blender on puree, no issues ever.
Plus it is readily available at Walmart.
Heard great things about Royal Purple, however on this side of the border it seems to be only sold at specialty shops, and they charge a bundle for it.

We've had this debate before on here......lol

For $25, I'd rather have someone else deal with it. It's an annoyance to me....haha

I use what ever GMC puts in there until my free oil changes run out..

Then I will probably move to Mobil 1 + AC Delco filter, doing it myself.
