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.
For noisy lifter try MMO one oil change. Known to help with that.

Thanx. I'll check it out.

If the car is started every day, I never hear the lifter. Only hear it when it sits longer than a week.

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
Yup, SOA replaced my tranny at 3,000 miles cause I busted it and I just replaced a clutch at 35,000 miles. They aren't built super strong, my other car was a C6 corvette and I could slam gears in that all day no problem, this car requires finesse and I'm not a finesse driver so I pay the price.

Oh wow. Just replaced my first clutch at 60k. Something about a throwout barring causing premature clutch wear. Sadly my car has been out of warranty for some time now.

If I were using Royal Purple, I'd be going longer than 4-5k miles between changes.

my buddies camry had 125k miles on it... ran RP for 9k miles without chaning filter or oil out or adding any ..... when he changed the oil at 9k, he saved a sample and sent it int to an independent company that cahrged like 80 bux to test the oil. they sent back detailed results and it showed the expected oil change was 3k more miles.....

so in short, he could have gone 12k miles without having to change his oil without any damage...

A while back there was a pep boys coupon where you got 5 qts and a filer for 30 even..... i picked up about 200 quarts going to multiple stores over a couple weeks... o have used about half of it so far.... might take advantage of this to stock up a little more..

Royal Purple finally carries a filter for the Mazda 2.0L Skyactiv in the Mazda 3 and CX-5.
The part number is: 10-2876. This info is NOT on their website. I used a cross-reference guide. However, I am NOT sure if Pep Boys carries it. It's not listed on their website either.

Other brands: K&N: HP-1008 Mobil 1: M1-108 Purolator: PL14612 and L14612 Wix: 51365
