I use Royal Purple 5W-30. It's the first oil that actually felt like I've got more power after changing to it.

I use 10w 30 Mobil 1 and I change every 2-3 months. I don't drive my car a ton so 3 months usually comes before 3,000 miles.

with mobil 1 and with the mobil filter you don't need to change the oil every 3,000 miles. its like 7000 miles. i think it says it somewhere on the bottle. check it out.

I used Mobile One when I first got my car.I think RP is a better oil.Although with Mobile One you can tell if its dirty or not.I change my when it looks dirty, not at a preset time limit.
