    Changing my 2014 wrx oil.

    I just passed 4000 miles. I know the manufacturer says that I need to use full synthetic oil and I was just wondering if anyone has suggestions on a brand they like. Thanks!

    Rotella T6 is popular, inexpensive, easy to find, and works well. I used it for quite a while and it seemed to work well. Valvoline VR1 also seems to be a popular choice, though I have no personal experience with it.

    Amsoil Dominator is another oil I have used in the past and had very good results with. It's more expensive, and needs to be special ordered, but I would go as far to say it's "better" than T6.. whatever that's worth. I never got around to actually doing a UOA on it, but the results other people have had were impressive.


    I'm now running Motul 300V in my new engine. All of the UOA results I have seen in the past with it are great, and talking to a few Subaru engine builders.. out of all the engines they have torn down, the ones running Motul looked the best on the inside.

    I've read a lot of good things about valvoline, like they even warranty your engine to 300000 miles... But I'm looking at this company in Texas... Texas Refinery Company, anyone hear of them?
