Champion Blue Flame Oil

Has anybody purchased this oil yet? Seen it in the newest diesel power magazine. One thing I noticed is that there is a huge difference in price when comparing the 5w-40 to the 15w-40, why is that? $12 more per gallon is ALOT!!!

The 15W-40 is a synthetic blend where the 5W-40 is full synthetic. I can't see paying $50 per gallon. Screw that. I'll stick with my Amsoil thank you.

Oh, i missed that! Royal purple synthetic isn't even that expensive. I'm not sure how much they will sell or how good it is... But I can't justify $50 a gallon either.

There had better be gold flakes in there for that price. It may be something for competition or ultra severe use. Imagine doing a change on a semi with that stuff.

Yeah, It would be crazy expensive since they take over 10 gallons!

Royal Purple doesn't have a good rep with the 6.0L. I'll go back to Mobil 1 @ $25 a gallon before I'd use RP.

The cost difference is one is a blend, the other is full synthetic.

I haven't put it in yet but I have a case of it waiting for my next oil change. Picked up the case at the East Coast Diesel Nationals for $100 or $25/gallon. The Little Power Shop was selling it. The $50/gal on their web site isn't what you'll pay for it in the world. I just figured at $25/gal I'd see what it was about. My Amsoil is more than that figuring in shipping.

Royal Purple is junk and I wouldn't put it in my lawn mower.

That's cool Mitch. Let us know what you think. Yea I was figuring that the $50 per gallon was a little over inflated.

I also concur with the assessment of Royal Purple. Unless this stuff is that good, I would recommend either Amsoil or Mobil 1 full synthetic.

Mitch make sure you get an analysis on that oil. Maybe send in a Virgin sample and a used sample

I ran Royal Purple in my street bike since I change the break-in oil out of it when it was new and I put 14k very very hard miles on it will not signs of any problems. When I say hard, I mean never below 10-12k rpms and shifting around 16k rpms everytime. I don't know royal purples reputation for our trucks, but that oil was great I'm my bike. I actually run RR in my 428 big block.
