I've used it in many cars, including my TT gto. Did your bro give you any reason he cannot use this oil, or why he doesn't like it?

I am not too sure about Royal Purple I have heard about the Viscosity breaking down... one of which is the company my father works for they use it in their trucks and he said they have had nothing but engine problems related to the oil... wether thats true or not its enough for me to stay away from it..... I used mobil 1 syn. in myt 06 350Z and this time im going to use Amsoil in the 370Z

Dumped the factory oil at 1,000 miles filled it up with Royal Purple 5 W 30 and will continue to do so every 3,000 miles religiously.

Fantastic Oil.

I don;t know what the weather has been like this summer in Memphis, but around here it's been above 100 for now 63 days this summer so far, set to break a record.....one I could easily do without, but the oil is holding up extremely well in the heat.

I dont know what your brother's issue is, but RP rocks. IMHO, probably the 2nd best mass produced oil on the market.

Last sentence of the paragraph sounds in order of popularity, from what I've read over the years.

Best Motor Oil - Synthetic Motor Oil - Reviews of Motor Oil - Castrol - Kendall

Well popularity doesn't mean best necessarily. Burger Kings sells lots of burgers, but they aren't the best.

I agree! I use RP, because a highly intelligent individual from my previous site recommended it for every day driving.
