napa has came out with their own full synthetic oil and wondering if it's worth getting. i heard rumors saying it's mobile1, or royal purple. but i asked the person who was working, and he said it's valvoline with a special additive. but if this oil was mobile1 and etc then this can be a big save on cash, due to how much mobile1 costs at the moment. does anybody know what oil napa's new synthetic oil is?

I heard mobile one changed their base formulas to a "lesser" base. Still tryin to find the link.

Anywho, Mobile1 isn't that expensive to start with. You can get a 5qt container of Mobile1 for what... $18 then $7 for a good filter(not sure what a Honda filter cost now... got no honda dealers in the area).

So $25 for a full syn oil change... That's about average cost of a non-syn oil change at your local lube place. Not that anyone would actully take their car there....unless they need someone to supply a new motor ;)

i figured that everyone should know the secret behind (Full synthetic oil). To be considered (Full synthetic oil) it the oil itself only has to be 15% synthetic so most people are getting ripped for it. The only full synthetic oil is amzoil and redline. Just to save everyone a few bucks.

$10 oil changes at 5k-7k miles, my motors have never EVER sludged up, matter of fact, mine are some of the cleanest esp with 245,000 miles on the car!!!!!

Full as in 100%? Where's your source? Just because legally 15% is "fully" synthetic, doesn't mean that manufacturers make it only 15% though. I'm sure that some are at much higher concentrations.

i have talked to a friend of mine that is a rep for mobil one and mobile one is only 15% synthetic and he said that most others out on the market are also. I also know a rep for amzoil and he says there are some tractor trailers that have used the same oil in there engines for a million miles, because of how the oil is, you have to buy a setup that has two oil filters, first being stock which filters down to ten microns, and then there filter that filters down to 1 micron, you dont change the oil just the filter every 12-15 thousand miles and there filter is only like 8 bucks. It makes up for it very well, but i just dont know if i could trust the same oil like that for that long. but just some facts for ya.
