    I did a search, and didn't find these brands, so...

    My mechanic-buddy says his brother does analysis on all his oils, and found the TropArtic, Motorcraft and Conoco Synthetic blends, which are all made by Conoco, same vat, have better results than anything else he's tried.

    Any advice/experience on these (Conoco) oils?

    I think we are finding that accurate generalizations are rather difficult with these motors. Some like thicker, some like thinner. Some like Mobil 1 best, some don't. I don't think we've found an oil that is a loser - some just better than others in a particular motor.

    A number of the oil analysis results on bobistheoilguy.com are from posters here - Cary, RavenTai, Andrewsreef and myself...I think probably one or two others but can't remember off the top of my head.

    Not sure a consensus has been reached! I think I'll probably wear my engine out trying to find the best oil.
