Favorite brand fluids/filters

Additionally you can tell us which specific type of oil, filter, and brake fluid you use (or want to use)

For example: "I prefer using Castrol power rs racing 4t 5W40 with a WIX oil filter, and castrol SRF brake fluid (highest combined wet/dry boil point)"

I forgot to add filters lol

Everyone says good things about it, I still prefer castrol. I will sell it at my shop though! I just wish they made a 0W40, same type used in Porsche's

winter, the first number is rated at 0 degrees Celsius and is measured by how hard it is to pump compared to water. The W actually stands for winter. So a 0W is just as easy to pump as water, and 5 is 5 times harder to pump. Which would decrease wear, and improve fuel economy

I've never owned a car, and if it's better in winter, it'd be even better in summer.

You should really research WIX filters. I don't like rotella, but at least it's 5W40.

I just did.... what exactly am I looking for?

From what I have read they seem to be legit but how do you like it compared to other brands?

And why dont you like Rotella? I like it because its sold as a gallon and not really expensive which is great considering how frequent I change oil.
