Default Amazon Basics Oil

I came across this video comparing Amazon vs mobil 1 vs Valvoline synthetic oils. I found it very interesting and I thought I'd share.

Pretty interesting. I would assume though the only way to really be sure it is great is to use it in your car for a while and send a sample to a lab to see how it’s doing compared to another oil

I thought about ordering some for the daily driver since the Castrol Edge 5w30 I normally buy was out of stock. I think I'll wait til some more oil analysis comes out from reputable labs. I'm sure the stuff is fine though.

For as often as I change oil, I could probably use the cheapest synthetic with no issues. Once I hit 4,000 miles, I change the oil whenever it's convenient. I rarely go more then 4,500 miles between oil changes. An extra oil change per year is cheap insurance.

Define "give it a try though"

Are we going to get the "tappets tap less and mpgs are up 7%"?

Cause I'm actually going to send samples to the lab upon next drain

I'm curious to know who's oil theyre selling. Cuz Amazon isn't refining their own oil. Theyre just buying it from someone else, and slapping their sticker on the bottle.

Also, that YouTube channel has a bunch of other great videos. Testing brands of rust penetrants, types of duct tape, types of locktite, etc. I dig the experiments.
