    Default who sells royal purple oil?

    i am wondering if there are any other places than mopac that sell royal purple oils? And also Aeroquip, or EARLS hose fittings?

    Is there something wrong with Mopac?

    It depends on who you get to help you. most of the time they look at you and treat you like crap... They have all the stuff i need, but to be honest would rather support a business that treats you well..

    If I have to i will buy it from them, but would rather put my business elsewhere...

    Call tunerworks, they had Redline fluids when I was looking around, might have Royal Purple as well.

    I believe Canadian tire stocks high end motor oil too. I think I recall seeing some royal purple there but not 100% sure

    yeah I hear ya.... there are a few guys there that have really helped me out, an dthen a few others who smoked too much pot in their day. But you get that pretty much anywhere it seems. Sometimes you gotta take the good with the bad. But I know what you're saying.

    It's just personal preference. The greatest automobile manufacturers use Mobil1 in their vehicles because it is the best oil you can get. Other brands like redline and royal purple are also on par, but not really worth the premium you pay unless you want to go that extra mile.

    Yes, I do. For the $30 you pay (if you do your own oil changes), Mobil 1 is a fantastic bargain. Considering you need to only change it half as much as conventional oil, its also cheaper.

    Mobil 1 gear oil is difficult to find. Even harder is the euro formula gear oil.

    For the price difference, unless you have a very expensive motor on the line, the price difference often does not justify the switch to royal purple. That said, Amsoil is a cheaper alternative. Priced at roughly the same/slightly higher than Mobil 1 and Castrol Syntec.

    Any of those 4 are excellent oils. Amsoil backs the extended drain interval as well, which makes it a somewhat-warrantied money saver.
