1. So at the store picking up some oil for the girlfriends car and long story short I tell the guy how I'm running RP in my car. He starts telling me that RP is the worst oil out there and its only meant for drag racing. How a friend of his had it in his truck and blew his truck engine. He also goes on to tell me that he has people that have ran over 100,000 miles on Mobil 1. Not some special Mobil 1, just regular Mobil 1. So why would someone think that about RP?

2. And the other question is I'm going to have my oil tested at the next oil change. Was going to find a place on-line. Is there certain things that they test for that would make some companys better than others? Basically I want to get a test done with as many of the important results as possible.

I tend to think that this guy is an idiot.

#1 Royal Purple is not just for drag racing
#2 How did his friend blow his motor? You can run the best oil in the world, but peg the RPM over the redline and BOOOOM. Like the guy tells only to eat beef and he's hit by a bus. So according to the store guy's theory, beef is bad for you because his friend only ate beef and died.....lol
#3 I know people that ran 100,000 miles on regular oil. That was some nasty looking gunk when they pulled the valve cover. But it still ran.

Laughing That's pretty funny. I would not listen to that guy very much. He obviously knows some stupid people. Laughing

www.blackstone-labs.com tests for pretty much everything that you should be concerned about. They even give recommendations as far as oil change intervals.

Thanks for the link ^^^. I sent off for a kit but will be changing the oil before that. Says to store it in a clean container because it'll take a week or two to get here. Any idea how much I need to save? I'm guessing a little pee bottle size.

Pretty much. Laughing Just be sure to catch it mid stream and preferably with the engine oil warm.

I've been running RP for about 5,000 miles and the engine is still in great shape. That guy doesn't know his a**hole from a hole in the ground. Laughing

I'd better find a way to break it to the 200 quarts of Royal Purple I have on hand that they're the worst oil ever, and they should be ashamed of themselves. Thanks, counter jockey for clearing that up.

I tell him I use it, its the most expensive oil in there, and he tells me not to buy it. He gets employee of the month.

I wouldn't worry about it Dave. People are stupid, they can't help it. Laughing

I lived in Eastern NC for 6 years of my life. I have never before met such stupidity. I actually had a car salesman there tell me a Mustang was supercharched and when I told him to show me, he pointed at the crankshaft pully.
