I am curious what kind of oil you all use for your cars. The previous owner used synthetic and that is what i will use. But more specifically, what brand do you use and why? Do you use specific oil filters?
You know Amazon has their own oil I believe it's called Amazon and it comes in full synthetic. I viewed some YouTube based oil trying and yiu know it held its own against mobile and others. I'm all in for value products and hlad it works for you. I have the worst things happen to me I'm afraid to make a change.I use Supertech full synthetic and filter, " Yes Walmart oil". Been using it for over 8 years and never had any problems with it. I've driven from NY to Florida back to back on the same oil change and it held up great. Never had to add any extra or anything. I've used it on my 89 supra, my 05 STI, my dad's old 87 caprice 2door and my 04 Acura mdx. $17 for 5qts and $3 for an oil filter. Can't beat that!!! AND before you knock me, mobile one, Amazon's oil, Quakerstate, Castro and many other brands are distributed by the same manufacturer.
There is a guy on You tube who did the head to head test with Amazon Basics, Mobile 1, Redline and Supertech. Supertech held its own against the "Brand name" products. I believe his channel is Called (Product Farm). I dont want to sound like I'm advertising his name but you should really check it out and judge it on what you see. As far as the filters go I've watched so many different videos of them being cut open and left surprised on the quality of the actual filter. Like I said it works for me and I cant promise that it will work for others but I drive and average of 12k a year I do about 4 oil changes in that years and never had a failure with their oil.You know Amazon has their own oil I believe it's called Amazon and it comes in full synthetic.

Exactly my point!!! Lol... Amazon Basics, Quakerstate, Mobile 1 and Supertech all come from Warren Distribution inc.One of the jobs I had way too many years ago was in an Oil Refinery. I saw four different brand of containers lined up to be filled from he same tank of oil. Just sayin'
