Best Motor Oil Brands


The Top Ten

1 Valvoline

Best motor oil made for performance if you own a sports car you should notice the differance

Some people say the test is to dismantle the engine after 150000 miles, the real test is after 300000 miles. Spotless. Thanks Valvoline

Valvoline is what all the old timers swear by for good reason.

Best oil world

2 Wurth Triathlon

The best way to determine which oil, and which viscosity works best for your driving habits, climate and engine, is through used oil analysis, that way you can see how much engine wear is taking place. And that's why I prefer Wurth Synthetic Oil

The best in terms of service life..

It's German, it's a bit pricy, but definitely worth the extra bucks paid for.

Best oil

3 Castrol

Whatever works best for you, your car, use it. Cars are a lot like people-all different! And so are motor oils. I have used mostly Castrol and sometimes Valvoline motor oils with NO problems. What's good for me, my cars, may not be the best for your cars/s. And don't forget to change it every 3000 miles! With a new filter too.

Castrol is the featured oil at our Express Lube. We have used many motor oils throughout the years and none compare to the performance and feedback we have had with the the Castrol Motor Oil. Great Oil and highly recommended to anyone searching for the reliable oil we all look for! You will find it with Castrol!

Since I started using it in my old 2002 car I noticed the engine vibrations are gone with less friction noise in idle. plus more smoother performance and bit more torque. used to put Gulf oil and other brands but no one made my engine so relaxed like it.

Best oil forever

4 Mobil 1

I have been using Mobil 1 fully synthetix for my 2001 honda and my Pontiac both cars the Honda have 210000 run like new and the Pontiac have 130000 run like new I love mobil 1 it is the best Oil in the world

Mobil 1 oil gives smoother engine performance than other oil

Used Mobil 1 full synthetic on my Buick Ultra supercharged... has 462,000 original miles on it, and doesn't use oil and was spotlessly clean in oil pan when I opened up for new oil pan gasket! Best oil from a professional mechanic's standpoint!

Used Mobil 1 synthetic oil in my SUV...amazing results

8 ProCare Lubricants

Well, since I put this oil in my car, the engine vibration is almost gone. Dude in service center told it has some special additives inside, I didn't get it properly.. but seems my car likes it! - Mechanic

9 Amsoil

The formulation strategy be the best! This is why the Saber pre-mix is good to 300:1 and still passes JASO spec! I did run it to 25,000 miles once. Blackstone said that my results weren't bad for 25k, but the OIl Analyzers (Amsoil's in house oil analysis) said the oil was in critical need of replacement. I don't drive with a light foot, so that could have a huge bearing on how long oil lasts for me! I've dialed back my changes to 15k since, the analysis comes out much better then! Since becoming an Amsoil user I'm just forever impressed how clean my engine is inside when I open the oil filler! Even at 25k, the oil just didn't have that gritty appearance and feeling of dino oil, it's great stuff!

I use Amsoil in all my vehicles and equipment!

This is the first synthetic motor oil and it is the one all other attempt to emulate. It is hard to find and definitely pricey so it is not surprising that it doesn't rank higher among consumers. Still no other engine oil last longer or protects better.

When it comes to quality synthetic motor oil, no other brand comes close! A soil has performed extremely well in my vehicles, which I drive almost exclusively in stop and go city traffic. Wouldn't use anything else and is well worth the cost due to its extended service interval.

The Contenders

11 Pennzoil

Pennzoil was better back before shell bought them out. Now it's just another foreign oil company. It's not horrible, but it's not American.

Haven't had any problems with Pennzoil in my 95 Chevy S-10 Blazer with over 200,000 miles.

Desile truck I use on farm pull some heavy loads small car almost 7000 last month.. Yes for over 30 years.. Pennzoil.. Never had any problems

Pennzoil cleans engine better than other brands, it's made from natural gas and owned by Shell. Made in U.S.A, which has stricter laws, people will sue you for false claims. That's why I trust this brand only for my car.

My Personal Experience, smoother driving, engine is quiet, little step on the pedal the cars runs fast already and after 5000 km, everything improves more, even the steering becomes smoother, engine becomes more quiet than before, and better gas mileage.

14 Royal Purple

This stuff is like Gold... er... Purple, the actual oil is tinted purple! Best hi tech substance going

Used it forever great oil, a little pricey at times. Allows it extra wiggle room if I don't change oil on time.

Live this still, engine runs cooler, inside looks fantastic after 75000 miles. Been using it truck since new.

All you need to do is check out the friction test ran on the top rated oils and you can decide from there 👍

16 Shell Rotella

Awesome oil for my truck I have over 300k on chevy 350

Very great oil from very great company

Rotella isn't a bad oil but shell is a dutch company, not American. Americans should care about that. Also Rotella is blended in the Amalie Oil factory. Amalie happens to be a much better choice than Rotella.

Love it run it in my 96 f150 4.9l 245,000 and counting

21 Quaker State

I have used Quaker State products since the early 1970 without any lubrication issues. Always, performed oil changes between 3,000 - 3,500 miles on my cars. The life blood of your engine and the cheapest maintenance you can do. I continue to use Quaker State products and would recommend the Quaker State full synthetic oil, awesome product.

I have always used Quaker state. It's dependable, my engines run strong with the same performance as when I bought them. Compression is strong and no knocks or pings. This included to be one of the most expensive oils back in the day, that says something.

Used Quaker State in my 1976 Camaro 350 (driven hard! ). Traded it in for 1984 Camaro and after the mechanic checked the engine, he came back to me with scratching his head and asked me if I had ever rebuilt the engine. I told him I didn't and asked him why. He said the compression on all cylinders of this 8 year old engine were all within spec. for a brand new engine.

Used it n my ecotec an ran perfect 530 1 yr 2 changes
