Save your money. Oil companies paid no taxes last year -- why give them anymore of your cash needlessly? But the cheapest name brand oilyou can, don't be afraid to change brands at will, and change oil and filter every 5K. Use only a quality oil filter (purolator -- Fram is junk) and your car will last as long as possible. Pour no chemicals in the tank --Lucas, Techron, etc. More money waste. Think about this process as taking a bath for yourself. Good clean water is fairly cheap and all soaps are about the same. the key is changing the bathwater often as possible -- will perrier mineral water make your cleaning any better? Nope. Perrier the company feels better though.
