The moly thing is ooooold news and actually A LOT of oils use it. RP is overpriced and what oil company doesn't throw around marketing BS. There are plenty of guys with oil analysis results on the BITOG forums showing RP superior to mobil 1 etc... not saying its the end all but definitely not in the category your putting it in...I'd like to know where your getting the moly information???

Re: what brand oil does everyone use?

I have used Shell Rotella in everything I own for quite some time now. I'm over spending $$$$$ every 3k for an oil change.
