I've always used mobile 1 full or Castro EDGE Syntec full. Well, last oil change, I used Valvoline Synpower full synthetic 5w30 since it was on sale. 30 bucks for 5 quarts and pure one "high performance" oil filter. After a thousand miles I checked my dipstick and it was below the low mark. I was freaking out because I never burned this much oil before. Usually only a half to 1 quart every 4000 miles or less. So I drained the oil on a clean bucket and it turns out, I burned almost 2 quarts. I was freaking out! And it was dark already. So I put the oil back in and added two quarts of 5w 30 Mobile 1 full sythetic and after 1200 miles I drained the oil for an early oil change and this time I burned through a little over half a quart of oil after adding mobile 1

I am using Castro EDGE Syntec 10w 40 right now and so far so good and registering well on the dipstick. Definitely don't think it was my engine but the oil I was using.

So yeah, any of you guys ever try Valvoline before? I'm also using K & N Oil filter right now. It was 14 bucks. Every try that too? Definitely watching the types of oil I use now.

it is NOT the OIL or the filter. if oil is black you are getting oil past the top compression ring and BURNING it...this maybe because the oil ring is not scraping all of the oil off of the bore. Try one quart Rislone for 100 miles, then drain and refill with 20x40 non detergent any brand

^ oil natural gets dark with use as it hold stuff into the oil. I bet thats what is happening

Also K&N is very good same as M1 filter.

Its Castrol btw, with an L

The OEM filter sucks, if you like cardboard end caps fragile filter media, and a antidrain back valve that hardly works go ahead.

Have you ever done a UOA? If not then you know jack of how your oil is working.

I rather just buy a Pureone if I had to pay or get a K&N/M1, Bosch D+ when they are on sale
