It’s an interesting list, and a lot of work.

Unfortunately, it only measures what members post, not what members use.

I did several oil changes last year, but didn’t post them, so my own cars would change the results (Mobil 3, Castrol 2, AMSOIL 1, Pennzoil 2).

Still, it’s an interesting look into what BITOG favors.

Yes it sure did, I didn’t see anything wrong with many of the posts which are now gone. Everybody was talking oil.
I asked the moderator to delete the first thread, I should have asked them to edit rather then scrap it,and start over. Nobody made inappropriate comments. It's sort of frustrating I can't edit myself I've made several errors so far posting this info. The forum moderators have been super helpful though!

I've been on here more than three days and I can't remember editing ever causing an issue. Because I always quote the Op so they can't deny something later mostly.

OK, thanks, that makes more sense.

Also thank you for doing the list.

I gathered the information from my "Post your latest oil change" thread. This was more time consuming than I thought, but it was interesting to see the results. I can't promise the final tally is 100% perfect but it is very close. My eyes started to cross going through a year of submissions after awhile, the 6 or 7 Natural Lights may have played into that too? I'm aware that this list isn't presicion, I didnt set out to make this my lifes work, so don't judge it too harshly. Maybe next year I'll dial the results in more and list every oil by name with the exception of Frankenbrews with are combonations of 2 or more oils. The miscellaneous category of Dealer oil changes, or brands of oil's used that were less than 2 . Anyway this list gives you an idea if you are interested, of what members used in the wonderful year that was 2020.

Mobil 230
Pennzoil 132
Vavoline 105
Shell 101
Amsoil 99
Castrol 89
Napa 72
Super Tech 65
Quaker State 55
Havoline 33
Chevron 24
Frankenblend 21
Kirkland 21
Harvest King 16
Motorcraft 15
Liquid Moly 9
AC Delco 7
STP 7
Lucas 7
Idemitsu 6
Redline 6
Kendall 6
Schaffer 5
Royal Purple 5
Oreily's 4
Motul 3
Miscellaneous 102 (unknown quick stop, dealer, and brands used less than 3 members)
Thank you for taking the time to compile this. Really interesting.
