Mobile 1 high mileage filter and mobile 1 full synthetic oil. I also use the Fram extreme performance filter if the mobile 1 isn't in stock. I just changed my oil this weekend and for anyone needing to chang theirs soon Autozone has the mobile 1 on sale with a free mobile oil filter.

You'll get a lot of different answers and fan boy replies. Really, there is lots of good stuff out there nowadays.

Personally, I run Mobil 1 and a Fram Ultra Synthetic filter and change both every 5,000mi.

Mostly...... Mobil 1 Extended Performance 5W30 with Mobil-1 Extended Performance filter.

Recently..... Pennzoil Platinum 5W30 with a Fram Ultra Synthetic oil filter. I might try Pennzoil Ultra Platinum at some point.

I change the oil about twice a year (roughly at 11k to 12k kilometers or every 7K miles).

The key to using longer-life synthetic oil is a high quality, longer-lasting filter.

-------------------------------

On the old 1993 pathfinder, I started out with high mileage Mobil 1 and then switched to Mobil 1 5W30 and later to extended performance 5W30.

That WD-21 3.0 litre engine pathfinder never leaked a drop of oil unless it was overfilled at Mr. Lube or on one occasion, one of the valve covers became lose which was quickly resolved.

This thread reminds me that once upon a time in southwestern British Columbia (late 1990s), most mechanics dismissed synthetic oil as not cost-effective or as a marketing ploy.

Man has that has changed. Now everybody uses/recommends synthetic oil.

I use the Purolator PureONE oil filter and stick with either Valvoline or Mobil 1 full synthetic 5w-30. I use to use FRAM until I saw what the inside of those things looked like. Never again.
