Motor Oil

I'm currently using ELF Excellium Full Tech 0w30 at a cost of 10.49 a quart...you can see my problem. It used to be 8.50. Not much of a difference unless you drive 600+- miles a week like I do.

I've been hearing many great things about Royal Purple motor oil, but I'm weary of trying something that kind of sounds gimmicky.

Has anyone used it in their car? And yes, I know it is not GM-LLA025 compliant, but that just means I'll have to change it a little sooner right?

I am using it - 20W-50 in summer and now using 10-w40.

I change every 3K due to the tune.

Search on this forum - there is a link to an independent test where it did very well.

Ordered a case on Amazon...
