Amazon sells own-brand mystery motor oil now, and this guy tested it

Amazon sells 'Amazon Basics High Mileage Full Synthetic Motor Oil', perhaps the most alarming mystery meat yet to appear in the CHOAM warehouses. Project Farm decided to see how it stood up against name-brand standbys such as Mobil and Valvoline. Things get going about 2:50m in.
Dozens of viewers requested this video. I'm not part of the Amazon Affiliate Program either, since I'm not trying to sell products. I do independent testing only. So, thank you very much for the video ideas, including this one! AmazonBasics Fully Synthetic Motor Oil better than Mobil 1 Advanced Full Synthetic Motor Oil? In this video, I tested Valvoline 10W-30 Conventional Motor Oil, AmazonBasics Full Synthetic Motor OIl, and Mobil 1 Full Synthetic Motor oil for cold temperature flow, lubricity, evaporative loss after exposure to approximately 400F for 2 hours, and cold flow of each oil after exposed to heat for 2 hours.
Sleuthing (and the bottle shape) reveals the true maker as Warren, a respectable budget supplier. So you can trust Amazon motor oil so long as it comes in Warren bottles.
