I use CO-OP synthetic XLS-II, much cheaper and as good or better than manufacturers oils. or so it says. I'm happy with it and havent had any problems. And you cant beat the price.

Darryn,

What are you paying for it ? It's like $9 and change per lt at my local CO-OP. Seems really pricey considering I can purchase AMSOIL for a hell of a lot less.

There are only about 3 oil refineries in the world, yes there are additives, but all the oils you are getting from the dealer, are made by someone else, if you ask me oil is oil, you may think you are doing yourself a favour using high end synthetic(yes i understand if you have a high performance sled) but for the cost of pistons these days a 50$ gallon of oil isnt worth it, thats my opinion

i am using amsoil synthetic in my srx, its 35.00 a gallon, completely worth it. fully synthetic is better than synthetic based.
