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.

Low friction runs cooler. No sulfur so condensation inside the engine will not create sulfuric acid which causes pitting in friction surfaces. Not a paraffin base. Paraffin is bad for your engine. Valvoline is the best motor oil ever.

2 Wurth Triathlon

Good products

Super Oils

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

Very smooth

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.

Have used Castrol GTX in all my cars since 1972 - still used in my 22 year old Chevy Silverado with no issues. Use it in my high performance engines as well. Thumbs up all around

Best oil period...I use full synthetic in my cars and trucks and motorcycle...other oils burned up with less than 3000.miles. Castrol oil stays great in all conditions...and I run my stuff HARD...I HAVE BEEN A TECH FOR 25 PLUS YEARS...SO I KNOW GOOD OIL..

Love me some castrol.

4 Mobil 1

I have a 1999 Toyota Tacoma I bought with 90,000 mile's on it from a dealership. I got it home and changed the oil and filter first thing. I put in Mobil 1 high mileage they said was good for 15,000 mile's, I took it to 20,000 and changed it, the oil looked good, black and no metal; so I have run the same 20,000 every change since, now it has over 360,000 mile's on her, I'm sold and wouldn't switch for anything.

Experienced really good engine condition with Mobil

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

Excellent engine smooth & enhance milage excellent oil

5 Total Lubricants

Works well to both old and new engines of cars, light and heavy equipment without any problem. I sometimes overlooked to monitor the oil-change schedule of my car and reaches 1 year (18K km.) without oil change but I could not notice any decline in performance. Been using Total for over a decade. 2-thumbs up for Total Lubes.

Very good engine oil

Superb lubricating oil with fuel economy system and with long drain interval.

Best motor oil

6 Shell

Best motor oil world

Shell has been number 1 Oil Suppler for the last 12 years in a row. They spend millions on research and development in order to created the most advanced engines oils on the market. They set the trends and the rest follows.

10 Petronas

Petronas is the best oil in the world.


The Contenders

11 Pennzoil

Best motor oil

I guess it is ok, 45 years I always bought a name brand at walmart, just oil and I always got 200,000 miles or more and never engine problems

Pennzoil is the best!

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.

12 Motul

Excellent oil

Best brand ever. Works well for my car

One number brand in oil, I am used lot's of brand but that's number 1

The man who can be specialist mechanic but cannot be Lubricants. Today motul has Lubricants specialist and they were well knowing about how to create the excellence protection and best performance oil and to make the solution for the engine's lubricants error. Therefore to support and help for specialist mechanic and motul will appear. That's why you can trust motul into your Lubricants partner.

13 Havoline

It's gotta be at least similar to Chevron oil since they merged. Havoline has always been top notch, second to none!

Best Engine Oil

Keep the engine clean and save money

My favorite, have used it for a long time

14 Royal Purple

This oil not change the metal color inside the engine and reduce the friction and lifters noise in different engines

Best oil

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

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

16 Fuchs

Best oil in the world by far check out all there approvals

Amazing brand and exactly high quality products...

17 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 Gulf Western

Seems to work fine for a lower cost synthetic

Is it a detergent oil

It is the best oil brand

22 Sinopec

2nd largest oil company in the world based in houston and new york

Sinopec Motor oil is a great quality oil, also nice that its made at a Shell refinery plant.

Sinopec wins contract to supply United Airlines with jet fuel for the next 3 years.. Check the fuel trucks next time your flying out of Houston or Newark airport!

Great oil, I had no idea Sinopec was a global company that trades billions on the New York Stock Exchange. An easy way to find out more about the oil and history. Search online for... Shell and Sinopec.. and you will get the whole history story about how they started

23 Quaker State

Use in both an 05 caravan, 06 corolla, both city driven and still kicking. The caravan uses the synthetic, corolla advanced durability.

I bought a 2008 tacoma new and used Quaker state since first oil change. The truck now has 289k miles on it without any problems and not even using oil between changes. My son drives a Chevy 2500hd 6.0 bought it with 20k miles and the odometer just turned 314k miles and not one single issue. He pulls his gooseneck trailer from Colorado to Wyoming and down to north west Georgia. He carries at least ten to twelve head of cows each time and no oil consumption between changes and he goes 8k to 10k between changes. 5w30 qsud I really trust this oil.

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.

Fantastic additive package made by Oronite, in house chemical company for Chevron. Not third party.

Cam2 blueblood
one of the best winning formula for race car. its perform extreme powerful for elite synthetic 5w30. can beat Mobile1 which I stop since I replace it for cam2 blueblood
