Recently bought a used Acura RLX and the dealership changed oil and other things as part of their certified pre-owned check list. Called the dealership to find out what oil they use and was told it was M1

That is impressive, congrats to Mobil 1


Scambling for solutions is a hopelessly futile endeavour and potentially dangerous, without first coming to a solid, personal understanding of the problem. Beware riding the ideological hobby horse.

I'm wondering how my Accord would "like" Mobil 1 0W20 over PP and QSUD (which QSUD so far has been my favorite). Was it just the plain M1 0W20 the dealership used?

So, you're impressed with Mobil 1 oil, or the dealership?

Most places now offer a "premium" service package; upgraded filters and lubes. No surprise there.

I'm sure you paid for the oil in the purchase price of the car; they don't give that stuff away. And you probably paid a premium over their cost just for them to use it.

What was so impressive here? I'm not trying to make fun of you, but I don't understand what you're enamored with.


The act of preventative maintenance, in and of itself, is FAR MORE important than brand/grade/base choices among lubes and filters.
- under maintaining something is akin to abuse/neglect; that can kill equipment by shortening the lifespan
- over maintaining something has never been proven to be anything but a waste of time and money

And your signature says you have Royal Purple in the car already. So the M1 wasn't in there long even though you were impressed by it. crazy

After reading the opening post, I'm very impressed with Mobil 1 as well. I had no idea it was that good.

Certified to us when I was selling cars meant they hiked the price and called it certified. They even had paperwork for it. You're right, the Mobil 1, if even used was factored into the cost.
