Valvoline, nothing but in everthing in the driveway or garage. I have used it since I started driving and have never had an issue. Max life will be going in the Ranger.

i use Pennzoil. my family has used it the most. how it proved to me that it was really good is that when i used other brands to change oil. it drained pretty clean. but when i used Pennzoil, an drained it. there was so much crude come out of it. i was like this. so i used Pennzoil again an it came out clean that time. i'll keep loyal to them until they bring the price so high i can't.

Nope. I have been to different places, and now, the shop I frequent has changed brands.
