What's a good oil for high mileage
 
I crossed 100K two oil changes ago and I've been using Valvoline Max Life Syn Blend. There is nothing wrong with it, I'm just wondering if it's a good oil or of their is better for high mileage.

I love that I can buy it for $17 for a 5 quart jug at Wal Mart :D

Suggestions?

Haha Thats what I used to do. I actually(maybe mentally) noticed a difference when I switched to Valvoline.

But then again, I was doing a lot of mods at that time so who knows for sure...

Yep, just put that in my bike. They don't make that on my weight with synthetic

When I had my ZJ, I used Mobil One between 125K-195K miles with oil changes being done every 7500 miles with no problems. Before 125K, I used Mobil clean 5000 from about 115K-125K miles with oil changes being done every 5000 miles. My Camaro SS (14 YO at the time) that had 50K miles on it was using Mobil One between 50K-60K miles with oil changes being done every 3000 miles with no problems. I just changed the oil in my Honda that has 284K miles with Mobil One high mileage and I'm going to change the oil every 7500 miles. We will see how that is going to work out. Once I am done getting free oil changes from my dealer, my Escape will also get Mobil One.

I used whatever weight matched best for whatever I was running it in.
