Royal Purple

I need help, and opinions about Royal purple, and other oils from the community here. I started using it for my oil changes, but I think my engine is a little louder than usual especially until it warms up. I did read that some people believe that it's watered down garbage. Do you think I'm being paranoid because I read that? There was also a part that said something about it having a lot of Zinc in it, and I don't know what that would do.
I thought about using Mobil one, but know I hear some don't consider that a real oil anymore.
Since I've been playing with motors just about all my life I've learned oil is like our own blood very important. So please feel free to give me any, and all of your opinions.
Also the RP was around 80 bucks for the oil, and filter is that normal?
BTW When I got my truck I thought the exhaust was a little loud so I had it checked for leaks, and there didn't seem to be any. Is the 3.7 a little loud around the front pipes, or do they have a hidden leaky spot.

Re: Royal Purple

I use mobil1 for every oil change and love it. Even put Mobil1 in both differentials. Costs about 25-35 for everything to do an oil change myself. When I got it done in a shop it was around 75 and I was not paying that anymore.

Re: Royal Purple

That's more like it the RP was ten per quart plus filter with me doing the labor. Which I wouldn't cry about if it seemed to be doing all they say it does.

Re: Royal Purple

Lol. Next time I do an oil change (next week) I will be using the extended release formula that you don't have to change for 15k miles

I wouldn't use RP (way too many issues, oil consumption/engine wear etc.), and certainly would never leave my oil unchanged for 15k!

Re: Royal Purple

This oils meant for it. Says guaranteed up to 15k between oil changes, remember is says ethic so doesn't break down as easily.

Good luck with the "guarantee" should you ever need to file a claim. What brand of extended oil are you referring to?

Re: Royal Purple

I've been using it. I don't ever get to 15K but I change my oil out every year. Been doing it on multiple vehicles for a while. The Jeep likes it real well.

I still don't know if I would be comfortable running that many miles between changes. And I would never run a filter that long, even if it was an "extended life" filter. I do my own oil changes so it's no big deal doing it at the "normal" 3-4k intervals. Doing that allows me to regularly check other stuff while under the car.
