I go by what's worked for me and where I can buy it economically. Over the past ten years of building my own and other's motors and using tons of different oils, I'm keeping it simple and economic. I didn't see/measure/experience any difference between $17 super synthetic and $2.50 quality dino oil. There is no magic juice - just marketing.

I find it interesting that some folks freak on what oil has the best flashpoint, bearing wear, shear test or lubricity but pour Quik Trip gas in their tanks or change their air filters every 50 gazillion miles or have AFR's so freakin low that the oil get hopelessly diluted anyway.
