I turned my blower motor 6200 and always used Mobil 1 15 50. Never had a problem. I also used to run the same oil in my 500hp. Royal Purple is a considerable amount more $ to use and have not tried it. If it is better please tell me why?

like you and I said its more money for R P . if its better I don't know I just recall seeing that and red line on a thread awhile ago. but like you I have been happy with 15 50 m1 .one of these days I will hook up a temp gauge and with new oil cooler with a therm, in it to see where its at. SS I will call you today its 1130am. I might go on a road trip to see knot rights skater at mill motors. art
