Ok, everyone here has his or her favorite oil [in this case i am refering to dino] All of the oil companies say thier respective product is better than others. So is there a clear cut superior motor oil and why is this? No offense to anyone i was just searching for what makes a better oil and if there is one oil out there that has all these things [not just because you have used a certain oil because you were brought up using that oil] So basically i am looking for hard evidence to support the better motor oil.

The best oil is the one that gives you acceptable UOAs for your particular engine, driving style, OCI and budget.

What works best in my application may not work the best in yours (and vice versa). I don't think there can be a definite answer to this question.

Ditto. Ditto. Ditto. Too many variables in application / use. What may be "best" for one vehicle may be horrid in another.

Best oil this week is Shell 10-30. $0.49/qt. after rebate. Couple of weeks ago it was Chevron same price. Last spring it was Havoline same price. I'm hoping for some $0.39/qt. one of these days
