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.

No doubt about it, Valvoline is the best oil in the 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.

Very good performance, never had issues with my engine using this 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.

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

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!

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..

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. Rick F.

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

I'm using JDM model Toyota Premio 2008 1.5 (1nzfe engine) I always put Mobil 1 5W30 Extended Performance engine oil in my car and its serving me real good for last 12 years from my point of view Mobil 1 is a top notch automotive lubricant brand

Mobil 1 oil gives smoother engine performance than other oil

5 Total Lubricants

Very good quality no works to show how it is good . It is the most valuable brand in the world. Think about quality not quantity.

Total oil is the best engine oil it give extra life to car

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.

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

6 Shell

Toyota avensis 2006 1.8, 198500 miles. Helix Ultra 5W30 every 10,000
Smell the Dip Stick, Feel the Quality !

Very nice oil

They have the best lubricants in the market. Especially their Rimula R6 and Helix Ultra

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.

7 Agip Synthetic PC

Best lubricants than ever

Nice oil brand

Very good product

It is the best lubricants for Cambodia

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!

9 Amsoil

Best oil ever, we make tests with other brands and no other beat Amsoil quality

The formulation strategy is...to 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.

10 Petronas

Petronas is the best oil in the world.

Very good oil love when I change it it comes out black so it washew the motor inside other oils come out clean like new

Ultimate performance all rounders

Best oil ever. Formula 1 technology, 3 time champion.

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.

Pennzoil is the best!

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

12 Motul

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.

The best lubricant in the world.

The person who don't have enough knowledge about lubricants and they cannot make defination about motul. Some people says about motul oil rumours. Because they are not Lubricants specialist. On the World only motul deserve with Lubricants specialist title.

The first in synthetic and motul can give high output performance and can keep mantain to your engine long life, smooth, clean, performance are you can feel it better than the other oil. Because motul is leading and innovation in lubricants.

13 Havoline

Best oil for the price

Serve the engine best

Havoline is and always has been great oil. Full synthetic is awesome!

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

14 Royal Purple

Tried a few other oils over the 20 plus years driving in multiple types of vehicles and Royal Purple has always performed. I have the dealer change to Royal Purple when purchasing a vehicle. There's none better.

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

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

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

15 ENEOS

Have tryed a lot of different brands and Eneos is giving me great results. Better MPG, smooth drive and great heat resistance haven't had to refill after 3k miles.

ENEOS defines performance and it is second to none!

Superb oil. My Subaru Turbo loves it and does not use a drop Best you can use.

This is the best premium oil in the world not only in Japan

16 Fuchs

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

Amazing brand and exactly high quality products...

Cheap and high quality

Fuchs titan is 4 out of 5

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

18 Ravenol

Full range of product top quality products

Since 1946 a superior Synthetic

Lucas works miracles! Power steering stop leak, auto trans fix, and oil stabilizer, fuels system cleaner all awesome products because they work! And they work effectively immediately.

The trans fix and the power steering stop leak are like MAGIC! Great stuff.

22 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.

23 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

24 Repsol

Very competitive rates & good quality

Best in my view

Very good premium quality..

Repsol is a good motor oil performance

25 Kendall

Best synthetic oil getting around with titanium additive! awesome performance advantage!

Now owned by Conoco/Phillips, Kendall is a fantastic oil. Can't ever go wrong with Kendall.
