Originally posted by Big Red: Have a question for everyone. I presently started using Castrol GTX 10w30 in both of my vehicles. Does it contain a lot of Moly? Is that good or bad? I use to use QS 10w30 before Castrol. Should I stick with Castrol? I'm open to your opinions/ Thanks

Originally posted by Chris: Starting to think this myself Patman but why is Chevron so well thought of, no moly right?
quote:Patman, I don't think I'll be running a baseline analysis on my current Havoline 5W40. I'd rather spend the extra $10CAD on the Delvac 1 on my next oil change, and finally start a trend analysis on it. Regards, Oz
Originally posted by Patman: I think the Chevron and Havoline oils are getting good reviews simply because their specs look good on paper. Although we have yet to see an oil analysis on here that I can recall.
