Gibbs oil?? Not familiar with it.
It used to be Joe Gibbs Racing Oil, now it's sold as Joe Gibbs Driven oil. It's not for the faint of wallet.

Well,

Thanks everyone, there has been a lot of good information posted in this thread about RP, and many other oil compounds.

I think judging from what I have read and done research elsewhere, that I will not be using Royal Purple as of yet. Its not that I doubt that it is a good product, but I have not seen anything definitive to back up the additional price or availability.
Seems like I will stick to regular Motorcraft for now and maybe...well in the future try this Amsoil.

Thanks again everyone for the good advice.

I always say that there is no vehicle out there more abused than the US military cars, trucks, tanks, tracktors, etc... Lives depend on these vehicles, and if Mobil1 is good enough for them, it's good enough for me.

One test that hasn't been done is how these oils perform after 2000 miles. I heard RP's additives are good initially, but it doesn't last for a long time. Mobil1's additives last longer. Hence, I use RP because I change oil as often as the weather changes, so I benefit from than short term additive. I use Mobil1 on my Taurus and RX300 because I change those every 5,000 miles or so.
