The oil that's best is the one that's changed on a timely basis. There is no answer to your question. Which car is best, which ice cream is best, which state is best, which planet is best? The list can go on ad nauseum. Go to bobistheoilguy and read to learn. By the way.........which senior diapers are best? Read and learn then make your own decision.
California, not Texas, hahahaha...
Currently, I'm going out to 7500-8000 on Valvoline or Castrol synthetic oil (5W-20), and an AmsOil 25K filter (I go to, 3 x 8K = 24K miles). I have purchased an oil analysis kit, to test my oil. Well see what it shows (I'll post the results hear). On my Honda (2001) the recommendation is out to 7500 miles, and a new filter every other time. My WAG is I'm OK...
