Oil looks cleaner when changed and gives you piece of mind when you rely on the DIC for oil life.

How many miles do you change yours? I usually go over the 3000 mile mark. I usually change it between 3500 - 4000.

Penzoil Ultra

VOA's show better cleaning

If I wanted the most performance

Redline, MOtuv 300 or Nulon come to mind given the most possible performance out of oil, but they all cost $$$$ and this is just a CuV
