I use RP in the civic and Rotella in my quads/bikes.

The testing that the oil passes means more than brand name. The tests passed are listed on the label (usually back, lower half).

Best thing you can do if you're unsure, is look up what testing your engine requires your oil to pass.

For instance, my bikes and quads require wet clutch certification. (JASO-MA is the commonly listed one).
So, Rotella has a line that passes those tests, and also passes the more rigorous testing for use in turbos and hot diesels. So I run it for its service duty and cooling properties as well as it's wet clutch certification.

Is royal purple worth it or nah
AMS/RP/Lucas all seem kinda snake-oil-ish to me. They work, lots run it, myself included (used RP and AMS for the Acura) but honestly any good full synthetic and liqui moly or ceratec additions will get you a long long ways. if you need performance then that's a whole other animal. Taco gets full synthetic Mobil1, extra capacity Purolator filters and liqui moly ceratec every other10k oil change. Never had a problem and haven't had premature fouling. I check it every time I fill up if I can.

Ceratec is the absolute shizdizzy.

Got recommended it fir my Isuzu by a guy down in floriduh who runs a luxobarge shop.
The Isuzu v6s are known for valve noise and lifter issues, along with some sludging problems. Isuzu went from 5-30 to 0-30 full synthetic due to it.

A few ceratec treatments, and running 0-40 Rotella, and it's much better.
Well that and a diesel flush every so often to clean it out. :laugh:

So the architect showed up, saw our wall framing, said it was wrong, we said it wasn't, she walked over to the plan table, looked at the details on the prints, said "huh, guess I copied these from an old print. . Yeah no it's wrong, it'll have to come down", and took off.

I fucking hate architects.

Whatever man. If she's on revision 2 and only supplied you with rev 1 then just bill for the time and material. It's not uncommon and you know that. Then get rev 2 in hand and do it all again. The project I'm on is in rev 7. Yep. 7 fucking revisions for a residential addition. It's been pretty funny running this shit show. lol
