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?

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).

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
