Thanks

By AF do you mean Advanced Fuel Economy? I was always under the impression these were just 0w-XX ILSAC oils and the "regular" M1 was 5/10w-XXs.

If you're talking about the new Annual Protection, I believe it's a different formula.

I would like to know myself.

Advance fuel. I know its their fuel economy oils but was wondering if the composition is the same.

AFE 0w-20 used to be the same formula as the previous grey top 0w-20, not sure if the evolutionary process that has happened with their product line has maintained that trend or not shrug EP and now AP are the two notably different product lines due to their extended drain capability.

Regular Mobil 1: Baseline synthetic.

Advanced Fuel Economy: More focused on fuel economy.

Extended Performance: For tougher applications and longer OCIs.

High Mileage: For older engines (slightly thicker, includes seal conditioners, etc.).

Annual Protection: For the longest OCIs.

ESP: For tough applications that have sensitive emissions systems (e.g. DPFs).

Yes they are getting so many variations of Mobil 1 that I wonder what I get now.

For example, is AFE (advanced fuel economy) formulated with about the same % of basestock as others (or is there going to be a difference in amount(s) of Group III, PAO, ester)?

Is the difference primary going to be in the additive package with a consistent base?

I think OP is asking the difference between AFE and Mobil Super Synthetic.

But I could be wrong.

Super synthetic is a blend. AFE is a full.

AFE allegedly contains Group IV/V-but, it sheared fast in my xB in my sig in 7000 miles, M1 EP 5W30 was still in grade at 10,000.

Super Synthetic is a full synthetic.
