  • Some of you guys correctly called me out for not giving the additives (i.e. Molybdenum) appropriate credit. They’re a small percentage of the volume but I believe do make a real difference in the performance of the name-brand oil, it’s just really complex and outside the scope of what I could manage to test for a quick video like this. I’m going to see if we can figure out a way to really hone in on and test these in a future video. - Jer

  • I am sorry Donut, but the most important in the USA is to FOLLOW THE MANUFACTURER instructions and CHANGE your FILTER and OIL (like Scotty said "oil is cheap, engine not). About the quality of the oils, that is a job delegated in API. The best oil for normal daily use is ANY synthetic oil. L love your your shows guys, especially Money Pit. MORE POWER BB!!!!

  • If you want a fun and easy to understand oil comparison check out Project Farm and his oil testing. He has some great videos and tries to come up with ways that us as consumers can test out product marketing claims or performance and compare brands and so forth.

  • I think you were severely misinformed about how oil is created under the earth. 1. It doesn't need millions of years, uniformitarians have clearly got you there. You just need lots of pressure over a short amount of time to create oil. It's possible to do in the lab.

  • There's really only a few manufacturers of base oils. Chances are even this dollar store oil shares a lot in common with whatever oil you believe to be the gold standard is made from. The main difference will be the additives package they add to the base oil. Which does make a big difference but not always for the better. There is a lot of myths about engine oil and not alot of hard science to sift out the BS. however i find this tech article extremely helpful.

  • I felt like this kid gave me the run around about the dollar store oil he did say it was the same specifications as valvaline at one point.... Either or, I top off my 96 corolla 1.6 with the occasional blue cap oil they sell at the store same brand but it's a sae 5w 30 API an plus gf-5 synthetic oil my car takes and I have no current issues that I'm aware of.... I change the oil every 3000 miles and top it off with the blue cap dollar tree brand as I vist there store and rarely find the blue cap I usually get as much as I can I know it might seem ghetto but it helps to keep it in the trunk under emergency situations I'm not defending the oil either just hoping for the best
