Motor oil preference

I wanted to know what oil everybody likes to use? Personally I found that summertime oil for me is royal purple 15w-40 reaches over 100 in oklahoma and winter oil is either 5w-30 or 10w-30. Gets somewhat cold here in Oklahoma too. Be sure to chime in on what oil you like to use and you're reason
Happy motoring guys!!

just seen this thread and I really like it. mostly because I was just thinking of asking the same thing as the 1st person already has.
My question is the following, "again, I don't want to hijacked the thread or anything. But seeing how this one is already made. I see no reason to open another one."...

I have always use the best of best oil's when it comes to my car.
Royal Purple Synthetic 5w30 with a k&n oil filter for an all year round.

But lately it has been getting colder and temps keep dropping as days go by. I've also noticed the "famous" lifter/HLAS a bit more than before because of the cold start ups. and I just feel that the 5w30 weight although it is synthetic brand. Is just not doing it's just as good. I need some suggestions here guys.
I'm do for an oil chance here in the nxt week. and I would like to put something nice and a treatment such an oil stabilizer or something like that, to help the HLAS and such. I know that I would still like to keep using Synthetic just the sure of what weight thou?...or should I just switch to an all different brand such as Mobil 1 Synthetic and start using a different weight then...or go back to just regular non-synthetic...or....or...so many options grrr!!

Klze I've had to use an oil stabilizer before, I went with Lucas I believe. I know royal purple is such a great oil and I use it for everything I have. Never let me down but you know how these lifters are they will tick no matter what haha. But I say keep your royal purple in, do some oil stabilizer. It helped my de a whole bunch

only run turbo formulated Amsoil in my turbo cars.

In my nicer cars i still care about, i run Schaeffer's.

In my beater/work car's, i run whatever is the cheapest at the store.

Mobil 1 5w30 is what I use now, I've tried many different oil in the past 10 years and see no difference between any brand and weight.

I saw a video showing the viscosity of royal purples 5-30 and a 5-40 of another brand. The rp lubricated and held its own against the 40 weight at op temp. Im not quite sure on the zinc consistency of rp or anything though

I use whatever is cheap..

These cars dont have race engines.. Royal purple is throwing money away on a motor that would last 200k on walmart oil.

Back when I was dumb I bought royal purple.. did the change. About 10miles down the road a oil sender line to my oil gauge broke..and leaked all my new royal purple oil on to the ground..
Thats the last time I bought that [shizzle].
