I used to run Mobil1 religiously.... until I started competing in GRUELING 20-minute lap battle sessions on the track. My oil smelled like burning tires.

Switched to Royal Purple.... and after 3 lap battles, it still smelled like.... well.... oil. It was a night & day difference. I couldn't believe it didn't smell burnt at all.

I've sworn by it ever since. I use Royal Purple every time. Not saying Motul & Redline aren't good.... but for me, I swear by RP.
