What are the details. Has the engine always had M1 or was it a police car that was put into taxi duty after being retired from active duty ?

As XM does many long term durability and deposit test. I would think this has been another one of those types of test. I can't imanige XM messing around with a live tear down on an engine that may have used someones oil other than their's.

I have nothing against M1 or XOM and I think they have some fine oil. However,
1. most taxi motors never really cool down and we know that cold starts is when an engine has the most wear.
2. And since the engine probaby never really cools down, the same teardown results could probably happen with $2/quart TropArtic oil, IMO.

But hey, just like a lawyer asking the questions that they already know the answers to, I'm sure XOM already knows what the outcome will be. Happy viewing.

The engine never cooling down would leave deposits with lesser conventional oils with a higher NOACK and also varnish most likely with lesser GRP II and lower oils.

What type of engine is this? If this is a Ford 4,6 V8 they are pretty bullet proof no matter what type of oil you use,

We're putting the protection and performance of Mobil 1™ advanced full synthetic motor oil to the test by grabbing a real Las Vegas cab off the streets and tearing down its engine with the cameras rolling. You can watch it live Thursday, Nov. 7 at 1:00 p.m. ET on the Mobil 1 Facebook page!

Filming at the Lucky Cab Company garage with host Marty Smith, we'll tear down an engine from Lucky Cab's fleet to show the real-world results of Mobil 1 motor oil. Lucky Cab selects Mobil 1 motor oil for its entire taxi fleet which needs to endure the extreme conditions of Las Vegas driving.

A third-party automotive expert will examine the critical engine
parts and let us know the performance results. Watch along
with us:

When: Thursday, Nov. 7 at 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT

Why test motor oil in Las Vegas?

Las Vegas
Las Vegas is one of the toughest urban areas for a motor oil to perform. The combination of
extreme heat in the summer – with road temperatures sometimes exceeding 150°F – and
near-freezing temperatures in the winter put significant pressure on motor oils to protect critical engine parts.

Pair these temperature variances with dusty roads, constant
stop-and-go driving and long idle times, and the result is a driving environment that puts engines
under some of the most severe conditions found nearly anywhere.

But this is also what makes it the perfect proving ground for Mobil 1™ products.

What is the Mobil 1 Lucky Cab testing program?

LuckyCab Taxi ServicesThe next level of performance - Save now
To test and prove the real-world performance of Mobil 1™ synthetic motor oils, ExxonMobil since 2004 has partnered with the Lucky Cab Company of Nevada to test Mobil 1 lubricants in its taxi fleet.

Many taxicabs run 24 hours a day, seven days a week. In these grueling conditions, ExxonMobil engineers evaluate and re-evaluate how Mobil 1 oils perform to ensure they consistently meet the highest industry standards.

And what have they found?

Lucky Cab's Fleet Manager, Joe Hicks, had this to say: "We see longer oil drains and increased fuel mileage, and we have noticed that the vehicles run better, run cooler, and have fewer breakdowns than with the oil that we used before."

Is this the typical test where they run a well built engine under ideal circumstances then gloat about how good their product is to people who really believe taxi service is bad for an engine?

Batteries might be a good thing to test in Vegas. But oil?
