I'm using Royal Purple. DaveE, Pennzoil Platinum is what I'm running in the wife's Grand Cherokee. I was kinda surprised the owners manual called for Pennzoil in the Jeep.

I'm going with the Mobil 1 on this change. The first I got through Ford since it was free.

why don't you actually put a true synthetic Class IV (PAO) oil in for a few $$$ more, only a few manufacturers out there (German Mobil 1, Amsoil, Redline etc.). Stop putting hydro cracked dyno oil that they call synthetic in your car.

If you’re a preferred dealer you get wholesale, 35% off. If you get the gallon jugs ($34 *.75 = $25.50). Yes, it more, but them you’re actually getting a true synthetic and better protection and longer change cycles. You might even get better fuel consumption. My way of thinking about this is not to spend more but to spend smarter.

Not going to explain it fully since a quick search will get you the info


Group IV has much broader temperature range and are great for use in extreme cold conditions and high heat applications.

This is a good read but I would make note that the top five list is misleading as Royal Purple has changed their formula and is not a group IV anymore, and only the European blends of Mobil1 are also Group IV so be careful where it's made as the north America ones are dino blended.
