    I did too on my last oil change. However, looks like they have some wear issues with Mobil 1 these days that they are being pretty quiet about. Amsoil, Penzoil Platinum and German Castrol seem to be the way to go.

    to each his own i guess.....I dont base good oil on whether or not some tv show promotes it or not.....Perfect example is carol shelby and Z-Max........on that COMMERCIAL, he guarantees it and says he puts it in all his cars......but now we all know about the lawsuit and that Z-Max is crap in a bottle....Commercials and tv shows dont mean squat because all it is is someone getting paid to say something......I base my decisions on actual INDEPENDENT testing/analysis and the discussion/opinions of those who know there stuff.

    Post Inadequate Demonstration

    Just know that in this video:

    Royal Purple is using a bench tester that is a non-approved testing method by American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM).

    I've used mobil 1 full syn for years, on 4 different vehicles, from 2.4l's to 5.7l's. Holds up very well, only takes a crank or 2 to turn the motor over. I haven't heard any news about it being bad, but I'm sure if you read into it enough, you can find someone who has had a bad experience with every product out there. I also don't drive every where with the gas pedal pushed through the floor board and don't have an annual pass to the track.

    i think he is referring to the fact that mobil 1 is no longer a true synthetic like it used to be,.....it is now a blend......due to the manufacturing and law standards they are able to market it as 100% synth

    If you carefully read what i wrote i never said "everybody" uses it or that "it is the best." Just didn't agree w/ the crap statement that's all.

    I havent heard bad things about quaker state, but I havent heard great things either. I would say that it is an average oil.
