...and all this time i thought it was only because all the good names were already spoken for.

I just put in some RP 5w30, after 3 concurrent ARX cycles. This is my first time trying RP. $41 for 6qt at Pep Boys...never paid that much in my life for oil. that's like 12 complete oil changes at teh wal mart.

one thing car has a 6.5qt capacity and i only bought 6. would it be acceptable practice to put in .5qt of M1 5w30 EP full syn on top of the RP? the M1 is part of my stash....

Royal Purple 5W30 is available for $4.49 per quart locally. And this is Retail OTC. Not a special deal. Paying more than that, I would find a different oil. I have used RP 15W40 and my daughter uses 5W30, but at $4.49 per qt.

You can top up with Mobil 1.
Wow - where do you find RP at $4.49? Around here, I can only find it at O-Reilly for $6.49, and Napa for $6.99:(. I would definately try it for $4.49.
Let us know how long it stays purple.

RP is NOT the first purple oil. I remember my Dad running this in a 63 Dart....

Notice it's available in the new 5-20 weight? This ad is from 1954!
