PostSubject: which oil?   Wed Nov 25, 2009 11:19 am

i have 3 qts of amsoil in my garage... and i need to do my oil change before i drive 6 hours to mississippi for the thanksgiving dinner

i thought about using the castrol edge for a while since they have it at walmart... but then the $10 difference is kinda high when you can have the mobil 1 for $20.

i dont have time to wait for the amsoil to be delivered to me...

what would you use?

i do have 2 gallons of mix match oils in my garage...

2qts of Royal purple/
3qts of Amsoil
2qts of mobile 1 5w30
1qts of mobile 1 5w20
8qts of green racing oil (100%bio degradeable racing oil)

should i mix? lol

i need 0w30 which none of them are other than that green racing oil.

I'd be very wary of mixing synthetics. AMSOIL is a 100% full synthetic where standard Mobil1 is not. I'd say use the AMSOIL and mix in some Mobil 1 Extended Performance of the same weight.

Or, just buy some standard Mobil 1 for the trip and switch it to AMSOIL when you get back.

dont mix and match weights.and i wouldnt recommend mixing brands either, but if they are the same weight it would be better than mixing weights

point is, that doesn't really matter unless you keep up on it and pay attention to your car. Razz

Why not just use the green racing?

You only need what like 4 qts?

Or go spend $20 on a jug of oil and then change it to some amsoil when you get back



And matt i know, i replaced the oil in my car friday before we left and my turbo burned it up by sunday after driving so hard. I was just trying to make you sweat

shiiiiid son. my pontiac dont leak coolant through its kidney.

and my pontiac is older than yours.



i ended up using the 5w30 mobile 1 i found in the garage... apparently i had 7 qt+ of it in the corner...

its amazing how you can feel the way car drives after a different oil.
