I used it for the first time this oci and I think I like it. My car is getting better gas mileage so far. I normally use qsud or syntec. I think I found a keeper.

Mobil 1 is a great oil. It will keep your engine very clean and provide great cold/hot temperature performance.

So better gas mileage than 20W-50? Gear oil? What? Also note that a published report showed a 4% variance in energy density for gasoline sold at the same station. So unless you are seeing a pretty significant change I'd be careful trying to attribute it to your oil.

And congrats on the first instance I've seen of Mobel. Usually people just make do with Mobile.

waltywalt,

I've been using Mobil 1 5W-30 ever since it was available during the late 80's. It's always kept me happy as it should for you.
