Default Oil Question

Anyone know of a better synthetic blend than Valvoline durablend?

Mobil1 is supposed to be the top rated synth on the market.

Depends on your wallet!
Mobile 1 is about the best "affordable" choice. Next up would "Red Line" & "Amsoil".

I'm just looking for a better synth blend, not full. I have been using valvoline, but I would like better, if there is better. Does Mobile 1 have a blend

I don't think they do, but I believe Valvoline is probably one of the best blends you can buy.

No it doesn't, but Esso does make a Blend: SuperFlo!
