Another oil thread......

Oil analysis tests are always subjective. I base my insight on real world experience and results.

We see a lot of engines during the course of the year, and a bunch more at the end of the race season.
Looking at their bearing, cam, and transmission gear wear I've learned a bit about oils through the years.

In my experience, Royal Purple has not fared as well as some of the other synthetic oils out there.

The best oils in terms of minimal engine wear I've found seem to be the following:
Motul
Amsoil
Honda GN4
Repsol

My 2 cents, YMMV.

Not really following you here. Are you saying that most oils (mobile 1, quaker state, rp, wal mart, etc.) are made in the same place and just have different packaging? That wal mart brand oil is essentially the same as say, mobile 1?

Its not that they take mobil one and put it in super tech bottles...But Exxon sales alot of there oils to other companies and they blend it.... So say you hated mobil 1 and you were all for valvoline, Well that valvoline could be mostly mobil 1

Is this royal purple made for motorcycles?? The price isn't bad, I use Mobil 1 4t Synthetic oil(10 bucks a quart) but this is specifically for motorcycles with wet clutch and high revving engines.

Base petroleum stock comes from the oil companies; Exxon, BP etc.
What is done / added to the base stock is what makes the oils perform differently.
Synthetic stocks are different in that they are created in a lab using minimal or no petroleum stock.

ok.. this makes a lot more sense as proven by different test results using different oils.

where as this makes no sense. Itís like saying the beef that comes from one farm will turn out the same in the end even though one shipment is sent to mcdonalds to be put in big macs and another is sent to a 4 start restaurant for itís main course.

Coca Cola and Dassani are bottled at some of the same plants, but they sure are different.

Are those in any order? Where does Castrol R4 fit in?

Just curious.
