Just grab whatever's on sale. Quite a few places do promotions where they sell quarts for $1.99. I have a few quarts of chevron supreme, shell, and quaker state. All of them were purchased on sale at a bargain.

Regarded? Here on BITOG, PYB without a doubt. I'd use it without hesitation. It has shown well in UOAs. Best? Probably Rotella 10W-30, another SOPUS product. Now, since most of us don't run really long OCIs, and most of don't own really demanding engines, or subject them to track use, any SJ/SL/SM/SN conventional would probably hold up just fine, and a UOA would show this. After all, a UOA is all about how the oil held up in service, not engine wear. You really can't go wrong with any recent API spec oil in most applications for most users.

How so? "public's perception" is the perception of the public, as denoted by the possessive use of the apostrophe. I did leave out a "the" in front of it, but that's not required for proper English.

Got a case of Formula Shell for the next few OCIs on my parents vehicle's.
