Royal Purple Is It All Hype?

Just wondering about this brand before i put it in my wife's suv.
The last thing i need to hear is her complaining about the price of the oil and not feeling a diffrence. I actually hear a lot of good things about this product and i was just wondering if anyone out there is using it and wanting to see if it would be worth the money.

It's not worth it in a non-"performance" application. Just use some other Synthetic.

I use RP in my Mustang tho, it feels like it runs better, who knows.

The company and their product have a great reputation but I doubt your going to see any difference in performance in your wife's SUV.

all i use in all my family vehicles is royal purple... it last longer, performs better, and its only like 2 dollars more a quart... in the long run it gives you better hp normally and helps with fuel consumption... worth the extra bucks in my opinion...

Royal Purple is worth the money, to me. If not Royal Purple than any quality synthetic would work. Mobil 1 is my other choice.

It doesn't work that well with antifreeze. Works great for racers who use straight water.

May I suggest that you consider using various of the Amsoil products based on independent testing data available on the internet (e.g., use search term "synthetic oil comparison" for synthtic oil comparison studies, etc. for other products you may be considering using).

My own recent survey indicated that Amsoil synthetic oils in particular are superior to ALL other comparable weight oils available in virtually ALL standarized testing used by independent testing entities.

(NB- Lest any reading these remarks suspect otherwise, please be advised that I am NOT now nor have I ever been an Amsoil distributor)

Although I use Amsoil too, ANY synthetic motor oil is superior to ANY conventional motor oil.

I run all my cars one year on a single oil change.

Doing that saves more than the difference if I used conventional oil and the 3000mile change interval.

If you need to keep your warranty intact I'd use a synthetic blend and change it at 5000mile intervals.

But, some of us just have to have the best for our pride and joy no matter the product.:hihi:

I quite agree with the last post before this based on the data I've reviewed, i.e., that virtually any synthetic oil is superior to any non-synthetic counterpart. My point (not to quibble but to perhaps be clearer, if it wasn't clear to begin with) is that the Amsoil product not only "outperforms" virtually any non-synthetic product (based upon relevant metrics) BUT ALSO "outperforms" virtually any comparable synthetic product (based, again, on the metrics generally accepted as valid and reliable by independent testing entities).

When RP compares their oil, they compare their oil to a non synthetic and give results . RP has a slippery additive that makes it a very small bit better then most full synthetics, but the difference is very slight. any synthetic oil will be better then any conventional oil.
