New Oil in the old Ranger

I tried looking for The Official Oil Thread but hard to find on the old celly. I switched over to Royal Purple this past weekend. Gone about 50 miles with it. Started it up this morning and instantly could tell a difference. Alot quieter amd smoother running engine. Ive always used full synthetic so i know its because of the additives that Royal Purple uses. I recommend it to anyone. My engine is a 3.0 1999. With about 210000 miles. They have it at your local walmart too!

Ive always like Royal Purple products.

I use Mobil 1 for my motor oil, and Royal Purple for all of my other fluids (rear diff, transmission, t-case.....etc. etc.)

It definitely made a difference in my old '94 Mustang GT. It ran much smoother and quieter too.
