M1 0w40 is about as good as oil gets. Street, track, and OPE


2019 Toyota 4Runner 4x4 TRD
2019 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 TRD*

Mobil 1 0w40


The specs on the back are more important than the label on the front

Rocky’s one smart squirrel!

The double emoticon in my post should have tipped you off that I was mainly joking with you.

That said, the _broad generality_ of different oils showing different metal levels in a simple UOA, independent of whether actual wear rates are different, is known but not necessarily widely accepted on the internet.

Are you using the new Mobil 1 0W40 ESP or 0W40 European car formula?
