I am kid of an oil freak. I was a maintenance supervisor in a Power plant my whole life (Mechanical Engineer)Done lots of oil analysis both work related and for my cars.

Viewing thousands of oil analysis on BITOG.com. I have pretty come to the conclusion that oil is oil.

My choice now however. QS Ultimate Durability. As far as filters Fram Ultra. This filter has a 99% efficiency at 20 microns. Most filters (if they actually publish their ratings are 99% at 35 to 40 microns.

GM did a test some years back and indicated a 40 micron filter had 3.4 times the wear as a 15 micron filter. Filter is more important than the oil IMHO.
