It depends on motor condition- a high mileage unit may run better on special high mileage oils say castrol or penzoil or it could do better on 10w-40 oil. Pick an oil that is easy to find and if you have good UOA reports than stick with it. You can not develop trends by swithcing back and forth between brands and weights. When you find good consistant wear numbers from the same brand then that is your best dino oil.

Originally posted by Mystic: hvac, I am not an expert on motor oils. However, the conventional motor oils that have looked the best in UOAs done by people at this web site include Chevron Supreme, Pennzoil, Castrol (some concern with Castrol about flow at low temperatures), Exxon SuperFlo, and Mobil Drive Clean (the motor oil that you mentioned).
