Cam2 10w30 w/ 1 quart HD Lucas oil treatment and my $1.99 filter. Entire change costs $15. Oh ya, forgot to mention I work at the parts store & get for cost. Also, our filters have twice the pleats as a regular Fram. W/o the Lucas, costs like $12.

The Lucas was for the first time - heard good things so thought I'd give it a whirl.

Mobil 1 10-30 high mileage for the past 80K miles (now at 220K)

[Unless you are dealing with a specific wear problem or doing something temporary like using Seafoam just before oil change to clean things out, buy good oil but don't put in additives (this is the general recommendation of automotive engineers). Good oils come with a balance of additives (yes, they interact) and throwing something else in can actually degrade performance.]
