Currently using NAPA brand dino oil, but I will convert to synthetic when money allows for $50 vs $15 oil changes.

Just plain old Castrol 10-30 with a splash of Hyper Lube and a Mopar brand filter.
I have 130K+ and see no reason to run anything else.

i use Mobil 1 Synthetic 10W30 Extended Performace, and replac a quart with Lucus Synthetic Oil Stabilizer, and use a Mobil 1 Filter. Ive used many oils, and this by far is the best. Ive taken a class on Mobil 1 oil, so iknow the benifits. This oil Cleans out the motor of sludge as well.

I generally run Mobil 1 10w-30 fully synthetic with 1 quart being the lucas oil stabilzer. Recently I have switched over to Valvoline high mileage synthetic blend 10w-40.
