I'm assuming you mean Mobil Super synthetic vs. Mobil 1.
MSS is their cheapest synthetic, and "outperforms conventional oils", and M1 is their premium product.
MSS is guaranteed for 7500 miles vs. 10,000 miles for Mobil 1.
They also use entirely different additive packs.

They're both good oils but MSS is made to the price point of cheaper synthetics, and Mobil 1 is their flagship oil.

Possibly, although my first guess was Mobil Super Syn vs Advance (AAP) Syn. OP, could you clarify?

I don't think Mobil MSS (their cheapest synthetic) has any PAO in it at all....

Mobil 1 definitely does.

My local AAP sells Carquest synthetic. The jugs look like the Supertech Warren jugs.
