I couldn't vote 2 categories so I just voted Amsoil.

2nd season with the new motor and 1st season running Amsoil Severe Service 20w-50. So far I love it. My oil pressure is more consistant, not super high when cold/warming up, but stays up and solid once it's hot. I also used to top off about 1/2 quart ever 2-3 hours. So far I'm at almost 8 hours on this oil and it's still good. It may be down slightly but still in good shape and just starting to get some color. I'll probably change it at 10-12 hours just to flush the old Valvoline out more.

This Amsoil is like a cherry syrup and even smells sweet. So far I'm a believer.

I found dumping it offshore left a horrible oil stain on the hull, if I idled it collected on the stern. Now I just dump it in the woods. NOT.
Mitch, just put your used oil in quart jugs, take it to the truck stop at exit 49 and tell the truck drivers that with the new low sulfur fuel that they need more lubrication in the top end. Then sell them your special blend for $3.95 per qt. Tell them to dump one qt in each tank every time they fill up No harm done, JB
