Get ready for a 50 page thread!
I use brown oil. I'm sure there are a bunch of oil threads around here and on the googles. Everyone is gonna have their own opinion and argue they're more righter.
Out of 30-40 Mirage's there's one here with 430xxxkms on it, there are bunch with over 300k kms, 200k kms and only a handful are under 160k km(100k miles). I used Mobil 1 0w20 for the first year or so in all the cars then switched to klondike 0w20 oil for all the Mirages and use the same brand for the entire fleet of cars, vans, and light and medium trucks. There are a 2 cars that use 1/2 liter between oil changes. I have hard time believing the brand of oil had anything to do with that though.
I've used the mitsubishi mz690072 filter since new on all the cars I maintain. And use wix filters on the rest of the fleet.
For my own junk I buy whatever is on sale. I don't see the point of spending 4x the amount on oil that's gonna get drained and thrown out in 4-6 months. I don't use cheapest oil or air filters on my stuff and usually use wix filters too.
In my opinion some people overthink and worry too much about oil brands and ways to get every last penny out of those 3 liters of oil. Change it regularly enough and you should be fine. If the engine blows up the label on the bottle won't usually be to blame unless it was full of sand.
Hope that doesn't come across too offensive like many of my post's do
