Which motor oil should I go with in my FX35?

I've always used Mobil 1 ep 5w-30, but recently went with M1 advanced fuel economy 0w-30, didn't see a difference, so I'm probably going back. Though I'm hearing really good things about royal purple and amzoil 5w-30. So I'm contemplating on going with one of those. Is anyone familiar with the two?

BTW Costco has on sale right now 3/1 gal of Chevron Delo 400 Motor Oil SAE 15W-40 for $35 (link below). Would that be an efficient motor oil for the FX35 in Winter?

here's an 03' G35 running on Delo 400 15w40:

All help is greatly appreciated
Thanks!

I'd stick to Mobil 1 full synthetic, which you can get a 5-quart jug at Walmart for about $25. If you want to get the pricier stuff, go with AMZOIL or Royal Purple.

Is the Mobil 1 Extended Perfomance worth the hype and cost? I use 5w30 Mobil 1 full synthetic currently.

Is that the one that you can go like 15k miles without changing the oil? Personally, I would be paranoid about keeping the same motor oil/filter in my engine for 10k+ miles. I use the Mobil 1 synthetic and change every 5k miles.

Re: Which motor oil should I go with in my FX35?

catrol syntec here for all my vehicles. When I had my boxster a few of the "super mechanics", you know the ones that bore out engines and really supe up cars for others, well they have done numerous engine analysis and found the Castrol blows away Mobil 1, especially since mobile went away form asch certification. There is a certain additive that Mobil doesn't put in their oil that is really beneficial to high rev engines. I will try to find a link and let you all make your own decision. (please excuse me if I got a few of the terms wrong Ie asc.. I am going by memory and I think I lost some over the years).

Side Note: Unless you race, if you change your oil on schedule, it really doesn't matter. I still do mine every 5k miles with catrol syntec.
