Should i use Opti Lube or Standyne

I have been using Opti Lube XPD since day one with no issue. The dealer gave me some of ford stuff (standyne) i think, forgive spelling, im not looking at it now. Anyway i tried it last two tanks, cant really tell any differance either way. I know it would be nice to be able to get the stuff at any ford dealer then have to special order the XPD. Anyone have any knowledge on the dilema? thanks!

The above post would certainly work, I know a lot of people do it, it is not for me personally Do you have a local Schaffer Oil Dealer? If so, I have seen the lubricity tests and they are close to the top of the list. I would imagine it will be cheaper that buying from a Ford dealer and better to boot.
