Both of my cars use Mobil 1 Synthetic - for different reasons.

My 3.0L Mercedes V6 calls for Mobil 1 0w-40 and a fleece filter I get from Mann or the dealer. Granted - it takes 8.5 quarts and only requires changing every 13,000 miles.

My Lexus RX 3.3L V6 has 120,000 miles on it and I have started putting Mobil 1 High Mileage (5w-30) in it every 5,000 miles. Only 5 Quarts for that one. I started using the Mobil 1 Synthetic after having it in my other car. I'm not as picky with the filter in this one - I have used the Toyota filter from the dealership and the one in there now is a Fram from WalMart.

Usually Mobil 1, but occasionally RP oil and filter. RP is so expensive, but you can supposedly run it for like 12,000 miles.

I use Mobil 1 in my Jeep and a Fram Oil Filter. '95 Accord I use a mix of Lucas and Valvoline (we use it here at work). and the '11 Sonata uses the factory filter and the Valvoline oil (again because it's here at work and the car is still under warr.)

It's cheaper for me to have the dealership change my oil. They use Mobil1 synthetic and Beck-Arnley filters.

No way its cheaper than you can do it on your own. You just gotta do some looking around

I usually use Royal Purple, but recently decided to go with AmsOil for the new truck. I'm sticking with using K&N HP filters
What is AmsOil? I've seen Royal Purple before, but I've never seen AmsOil. I generally use Castrol Edge.

We do oil changes here at the dealership I work at for 18.88 plus tax. That's using a factory oil filter and Valvoline semi-synthetic oil.

It's a high quality oil. Used in diesel trucks (otr) for longevity. Works great as well in performance engines.

Well worth the investment

IIRC, it can only be sold in businesses with less than 7 stores.

It was the first synthetic to meet API requirements.
