FYI: Royal Purple does NOT make the correct oil filter for the 2.0L Skyactiv...yet.

The only oil that is better is AMSOIL, but it's hard to come by.
As far as sythetic oils go, yes, I have used it for years. Mobil 1 not even close. I can still get Amsoil for about the same locally w/o the coupon so, its all good.
PLEASE NOTE: Don't use synthetic oil in an older vehicle if you have not used synthetic oil in it before. It will most likely leak out. Even in the frigid temps, synthetic oils pour pretty smoth and quick. Try pouring regular oil in your vehicle below freezing to see what I'm talking about, its like molassas.laugh out loud
The seals on your older cars work just fine for conventional motor oils that you've been using, but if you switch to synthetic, it will most likely leak. An expensive, and messy mistake.
For the folks who love Purple, cheers! This is a great deal if you love this product. A friend of mine loves it. Thanks for posting OP.

Not so good of a deal... in the end I need to pay $55 compared to AAP's $30ish, even less if it's conventional.

Agreed - I use Mobil 1 5W-30 in my '08 Corolla w/ a Fram mid-range filter and only change my oil once a year.
EEK! Friends don't let friends use FRAM.

Wait, are you guys doing oil changes on synthetic Mobile 1 every 4-5k miles? I thought you can go up to 10k? I mean, it defeats the whole purpose of using synthetics over conventional if you're doing regular intervals...or am I missing something here?
I depends on the car/manufacture recommendations. I drive a Subaru WRX which has a turbo charged engine. Within the 5 years of owning my car, Subaru has changed their specs/recommendations twice.
It's currently at 7,500 for every oil change but a lot of owners are changing their oil far earlier. I personally think it's a waist of good oil and the only real way to know when to change the oil in YOUR car is to get an Oil Analysis to determine when to change your oil if it's that much of a big deal to know.

A lot of heat, pressure, roughness goes on inside a high performance engine so putting the right kind of oil is crucial. My car drinks Mobil 1 like it's water. Castrol Edge runs great. Lately, I've been using Shell Rotella T6 jugs. Smilie

2011 WRX here, royal purple is overpriced.. Rotella T6 is the best but any high quality synth (M1, PP, PU) is fine... I go 6,000 on changes but I drive it like I stole it, I'd be surprised if the engine made it 100k.

Love you Royal Purple peps woot. I work for a company that makes the major raw material for the synthetic lubes industry. Very high markup off you guys so thanks for the big bonus you entitle us to get each year. Syn lubes are really designed for special applications such as turbines and now the newer refrigeration systems that require syn lubes for compatibility with newer refrigerants but hey who am I to complain. That's how we roll!

Nice to see another Subaru owner on these here forums. These cars are fun but be careful with them, their transmissions/clutches are next to being glass. Embarrassment

I've been doing a lot of reading over at BITOG and it doesn't appear that Royal Purple oil lasts as long as some of the other high end synthetics. It's good stuff, but I think 7,000 or less miles OCI is best. The filters are supposed to be pretty good, too.

I'd go with Pennzoil Ultra or Platinum because you can find it on sale at Walmart so often. They put up consistently good UOAs and last a long time (10K OCI for Ultra would be pretty easy on most vehicles) and they clean out the engine really well. Those and one of the Mobil one filters on sale at Amazon seem like a better deal, but RP has a following. I'm running RP right now because I got in on this deal last time it was posted. So far, so good.
I noticed that my car may be burning the oil some (06 g35) because I have to add a quart after about 2500 miles (in the middle of my 5k oil changes). I'd say I probably could go longer but I just tend to play it safe and do 5k changes with the filter etc. I too am using royal purple due to the last deal on it so I am considering whether or not to get this again or just go with the costco deal on oil and buy my own filter. The nice thing about the 6 litres is obviously having the extra one to add oil in between changes.

I have to disagree. My buddy (he's an Amsoil dealer) told me the same thing. I switched my garage queen from RP to Amsoil. The vehicle is driven once every two weeks to car meets. It has a slightly, noisy lifter at start-up that quiets after a couple of seconds. With the Amsoil, the lifter was louder. I went back to RP in October. The lifter is as quiet as it was before.

A quart for every 2500 is a bit excessive, is this a new issue since using synthetic oil perhaps?

I'd clean out your pcv valve or replace it and switch to a high mileage oil that will swell areas any leak could be coming from. M1 HM is cheap enough and would probably help lessen the oil useage. A quart every 5,000 not such a big deal but two quarts every 5k on an '06 is not a great sign.
