begin rant-

What makes you "like redline much better?" Have you done some sort of friction study or do you send it out for analysis and it's always tests cleaner than the Castrol?

I believe in the superiority of synthetic oil but I just wonder what makes people say they like something much better than something else when the benefits are completely intangible.

Sorry for getting on your case but could you really say, "Oh, I like Fram oil filters so much better than BMW filters," without somehow scientifically testing them? It seems like a similarly ridiculous comment and I have noticed a lot of these comments lately.

-end rant

BTW, if you are some kind of oil-analysis scientist or something, I apologize.


I run redline 20w 50
its about $9 a pop...but you shouldnt go less for your motor.
i ran castrol for a while but like redline much better.
