Exclamation New oil possibly the best out there

Royal Purple HPS Series motor oil is specifically formulated to maximize performance and meet the demands of high performance and modified engines. It is fortified with a high level of zinc/phosphorus anti-wear additive and Royal Purple’s proprietary Synerlec® additive technology. This unique blend enables HPS to outperform leading synthetics and conventional lubricants.
Available viscosities include: 5W-20, 5W-30, 10W-30, 10W-40 and 20W-50. HPS is recommended for vehicles no longer under manufacturer warranty and for those seeking a higher level of performance and protection. For vehicles under warranty, Royal Purple recommends its API licensed oils available at retailers nationwide.
Royal Purple HPS Series of motor oil responds to increased pressure with increased viscosity. It’s advanced additive technologies, such as Synerlec®, improves the condition of metal-to-metal contact under severe conditions for greater protection. Take a look at the following photos:

Performance Advantages
  • Significantly reduces heat and wear to help protect your engine
  • Improves sealing between the piston ring and cylinder wall for maximum horsepower and torque
  • Protects valve trains using roller or flat tappet lifters requiring added protection due to high lift/ high ramp rate camshafts
  • Exceptional oxidation stability—HPS maximizes oil life and allows for extended oil drain intervals
  • Reduces engine deposits and keeps engines clean with its advanced synthetic solvency


this video shows some drastic differences in oils including mobile 1 which is sample A i believe based on the container.

I just ordered the stuff for my next change cost me 106 dollars for a 12 qt case pretty pricey but after seeing the video i dont trust mobile 1 anymore!

this video shows some good info on how royal purples oil filters are made they look like good filters i use wix now but maybe ill use royal purple now?

Each Filter features:
  • 100% synthetic micro-glass media for superior particle removal with 99% filtration efficiency at 25 microns. See the difference! Both photos are taken at a magnification of 250x. The photo on the left uses conventional cellulose filtration fibers. The spaces allow larger particles to pass through to your engine. The photo on the right, of Royal Purple's filter media, uses the latest technology filtration system which filters out particles as small as 25mc.
  • A high-performance silicone anti-drain back valve that prevents dry starts, even in extreme conditions.
  • An extra heavy duty rubber base gasket that ensures a leak-free seal.
  • Ultra-strength filter housing endures higher burst strength than conventional filters.

what would be a good oil/filter change interval given average driving (about 700 miles per month in city and highway commute conditions)?

I meant using these Royal Purple products. I change the oil/filter at 5K intervals and I'm not using synthetic. I thought this Royal Purple oil/filter combo could run longer than that.

I change my oil once a year, but I drive my XK less than 5,000 per year.

Not to burst any bubbles, but I read on an oil forum that this load test does not simulate any real world conditions inside an engine. I believe Amsoil has demonstrated this theory in one of their videos that can be found on Youtube.

I am not questioning the quality of Royal Purple products, but just their advertising methods.
