What kind of oil do you use?
Time for an oil change. I don't use synthetic, typically I go to Goodyear here in my town and have always had a good experience. What do you guys use and do you do it yourself?

mobile one full synthetic.....

Do it myself with Mobil 1. I will be changing to Pennzoil Platinum in the future as it's getting better results on lab test and helps to quite the lifter tick on the SS.

That's what I use. As long as you haven't added an aftermarket cam with springs and stuff you should be okay. Otherwise I would consider Valvoline VR1 (non-synthetic).

Penzoil platinum after doing much web research.

Jim968 04-30-2013 11:25 AM

Mobil 1. Do it myself.

plus1zero 04-30-2013 11:27 AM

I picked up some Mobil 1 fuel economy, it was less buying synthetic than it was getting them to do it by just doing it myself.

I was under the impression synthetic was really expensive

PalmerGA 04-30-2013 11:35 AM

Castrol GTX SynBlend. Do it myself.

JDP Sales 04-30-2013 11:38 AM

We use Mobile 1 as well.

Best regards,


MR.Sarge 04-30-2013 11:40 AM

Mobil 1 for me.

You don't consider $6+ per quart expensive, times 8 quarts per oil/filter change?

Mobil 1, changed the oil/filter in her yesterday :)

Cruuzin LV 04-30-2013 12:43 PM

I just had mine changed last week to Penz Platnium. The engine idles very smooth with it and seems to perform well.

Childs Play 04-30-2013 12:45 PM

Pennzoil Platinum 5w-30

376LS3 04-30-2013 12:45 PM

Valvoline VR1 SAE30 conventional. Got rid of 85% of my lifter tick.

vroomapunk 04-30-2013 12:46 PM

Mobil 1 full synthetic, look at the oil filler cap on Ferrari, Mercedes, Audi, etc etc, you'll find Mobil 1 written on the cap.

My Caroline 04-30-2013 12:46 PM

Mobile 1 full synthetic 5W-30 DEXOS with a Wix filter.
You should be using full synthetic.
