Don't mention that over at the BITOG site; they'll get real upset.

If the oil has the proper SAE and API labels on it than yes, oil is oil. It is not so much that cheap oil (that meets the standards) will harm you engine but that better oil will help your engine for the long run. You can also get longer service intervals out of higher quality oil. It is just a matter of if you want the car to run, or if you want it to run for a longer life. If you car is on its last legs then, yeah, premium oil may be a waste of money, but if it is new or in good condition better oil will help to keep it that way longer.

With that said, I have heard Super Tech is made by Quakerstate. It was a few years ago that I heard that, so it may have changed.

Wow. A lot of misinformation here. SuperTech is excellent oil. The dino oil was previously made by Mobil, but is now part of the Pennzoil/Quaker State family.

The synthetic is a great formulation, with a very nice additive pack. It'* all I've ran for the last two years.

At any rate, honestly, your filter plays a much more important role than your oil itself. And while we're on the topic of SuperTech, their filters (manufactured by Champion Labs*), are nice filters too. Great product for the money.

* = Champion labs also manufactures filters for STP, AutoZone'* ValuCraft, AC Delco, and a few other private label brands.

Ya...I'm kinda letting this thread fade away.. If you ask 10 different people on their opinions on oils, you'll get 10 different conflicting view points. There'* no consencus. So, I'll do what I feels best. If we put this in another prospective, the quickie oil change places use junk bulk oil (for the most part) and a majority of the cars on the road are still kicking on that oil with well over 150K. That oil can't be any better than SuperTech or any other oil that people use here.

For what it'* worth, I only run Purolator filters. Filters are a different story...they seem to be something everyone can agree on.
