Some of you guys correctly called me out for not giving the additives (i.e. Molybdenum) appropriate credit. They’re a small percentage of the volume but I believe do make a real difference in the performance of the name-brand oil, it’s just really complex and outside the scope of what I could manage to test for a quick video like this. I’m going to see if we can figure out a way to really hone in on and test these in a future video. - Jer

Dude, you never COMPARED the dollar store oil to GOOD oil - so why shouldn't we buy it again - as long as it meets the engine's spec??

dude, wtf? Around 4:50 you misspell "sulfur" twice, differently. Once as "sulfer", and once as "salfur". Even your captions don't make this mistake. Get a better editor - hell, are you hiring? That's some middle school level mistake. TWICE. I could do a much better spellcheck job than whatever clown you have running it.

All oils sold in the USA must be checked and certified before bottling to be shipped and sold. Other than synthetic oil, all other oils regardless of brand are the pretty much the same.

So my car leaks about a quart every other day. I've switched to buying oil by the gallons to recoup some cost(it's cold and soggy outside I don't want to crawl under it). Should I instead switch to a high end oil so that I have better lubrication?

Donut, you guys are awesome but don't push your religion onto me, it didn't take "millions of billions" of years for oil to be made, first off there's no way to tell the age of anything that died before us unless it's birthday is known, next, when animals die, they don't fossilize unless buried, the only way animals get buried in nature is by floods, now having mass amounts of fossils is a good indication of a world wide flood at some point, I could keep going but hopefully you understand my point

The origins of oil is a bit of a rabbit hole. Some say no one knows how it appears and some people say the earth is a living being and oil is it's blood. Some say Russian oil wells refill because they don't use detergent and mine sensibly whilst the west uses detergent to get the last dregs which stops the well from refilling... which is why some people think it's made by a microbe. The more you know eh...

Donut, what are you smoking? You didn't even give any good reasons as to why I shouldn't buy Dollar Store Oil. Yes, you did seem to give overall good info on what oil is, how it's processed, and other things, but you didn't do any strong testing about how it actually performs inside of an engine compared to Vavelone oil. As a matter of fact, why did you suddenly go and test the oil qualities on the team's cars? That has nothing to do with determining if Dollar Store Oil is good or not. I'm sorry if I'm being harsh, but these things need to be called out because it's basic common sense.

This is actually showing more of a GOOD REASON to buy dollar store oil. Guys, guys, guys.... Most all oils, even stupid Supertech, is made by the big oil companies, just with less additives and other packages. Why? To hit a certain price point. Can you run dollar store oil for a normal 5,000 mile oil change, fvck yes you can. Do most people do this, NO. Why? They don't trust the oil, so they still spend the cost of say like Mobil One, and run with that for their recommended oil change interval. Do I use dollar store oil, fvck no. Why? An oil change these days only costs around $30 and that is using full synthetic oil, which has been proven to be better than conventional oil which only costs a few dollars less. Thank you drive thru!!! :-) Just make sure the oil has the little API "Donut" and you'll be good. See what I did there, see, see??

So you basically gave no real reasons to not use dollar oil. In fact, you actually gave reasons to START USING dollar oil!!! It's just as good as valvaline oil, meaning that it actually ISN'T the best oil. You totally destroyed your own reason and video title in this one. Disappointing.

I am sorry Donut, but the most important in the USA is to FOLLOW THE MANUFACTURER instructions and CHANGE your FILTER and OIL (like Scotty said "oil is cheap, engine not). About the quality of the oils, that is a job delegated in API. The best oil for normal daily use is ANY synthetic oil. L love your your shows guys, especially Money Pit. MORE POWER BB!!!!

If you want a fun and easy to understand oil comparison check out Project Farm and his oil testing. He has some great videos and tries to come up with ways that us as consumers can test out product marketing claims or performance and compare brands and so forth.
