Just searched for Mobil 1 5W50 FS, everyone wants $10 a quart, with Amazon being a bit higher. Napa is having a sale this month for $5.99 a month. Time to stock up!

good deal. would be $65 to my door for 10 bottles. but i dont think mobil 1 is ford certified spec oil (at least not for the gt350), even though i personally trust it.

It's much better than the crap Ford put in my GT, that's for sure.

The m1 FS x2 and pennzoil euro have a higher dose of zddp than PUP (or most other current API oils) in order to meet the euro specs. I like it better for high performance use.

It does seem to get great reviews and feedback. I've always had great results with M1.

For a brief time Walmart was carrying Quaker state euro 5w40 jugs for $19 in-store so I bought 4. It’s identical to pennzoil platinum euro according to the TDS.

I think I'm going to order 20 more quarts to cover my next couple changes. 40% off is a decent deal.

I just looked at the webpages for Auto Zone and Advanced Auto Parts that are both a couple miles from my house and they are asking $9.70 a quart. Which sucks because I've been using Mobile 1 for a long time, my last 3 cars exclusively.

I was in Advanced a week or so ago picking up some cleaning supplies and I noticed that they now offer Royal Purple at $39.99 for a 5 quarts. I've never seen it that cheap and never used it.

Anyone here have any feedback on Royal Purple? Any concern on going from Mobile 1 to RP on a 2016 with ~73K miles on it? Thanks in advance.

Probably fine but I’d stick with a mobil1 or pennzoil if I were you.

You're probably right, considering I changed my oil 2 months ago and have yet to put 1,000 miles on the car, I'd say it's probably an expense I can afford :crackup:
