If you are looking for a simliar oil as far as grade and performance, go for Mobil1 Extended Performance. It's a Type IV oil like Royal Purple and Amsoil and it's available just about every where.

When you look at all the test done and the cost of oil and filter to the times between oil changes,Amsoil comes out on top everytime.Amsoil makes more power,better Novac and longer mileage between oil changes making it cheaper in the long run.Mobil 1 still recommends changes oil between 3000-5000 miles.All you have to do is seach google or yahoo and find the results.

Thats why most top race teams,especially edurance racers,use Amsoil.Even some teams sponsored by other oil companies,use Amsoil because of its properties.Take time and do a search instead of taking a advertiser ad for gospel.

Castrol Edge doesn't even make the top 5 in oil comparision.Viscocity at heat is low and friction is high.All you need to do is go to Yahoo and put in syn.oil test or comparison and bring up the ASTM test

Amsoil is great oil and their claim to fame is extended oil change intervals. For your average joe who follows the manufacturers oil change intervals, there is no realistic advantage of Amsoil over the other synthetics. Same goes for castrol edge, Mobil 1 EP, and all the other extended change interval synthetics.
Oil company brainwashing at it's best. Use the less expensive Amsoil OE if you follow the manufacturers change intervals and save some cash.
Motorcraft 5w20 blend will work just fine too and save you a bunch of money.

Why would you not follow Amsoil change intervals?Their oil is still proven to be a better oil even after 5-6000 miles than the others.Maybe if you drive in severe conditions,dirt,sand etc you might want to change the filter once between oil changes.The recommended oil change intervals from the factory are set with their oil that they use.Do you throw other products away when you only you use half?

I've used Mobil1 and have had no problems, also if you want to save some dough, I know Advance Auto always has sales on oil, they rotate brands every month. I get 5 quarts of Mobil1 with a Mobil1 oil filter for around $33 bucks here in TN. I'm sure other parts stores have the same deals, check around.
