There is no best oil, just use synthetic oil. I use mobil 1 10w-30 oil and oil filter. There are a ton of threads on this topic. The search bar shall set you free

Castol and pennzoil are the only two I know of with independant labs that make there own **** in house.....
All other companys like mobil1, royal, quaker, have there **** made by other folks. Im a huge castol titain. fan.

Stay away from Royal Purple. Way to many bad reports on that stuff out there. Pull up a search on google.. "royal purple problems"
