I don't see the Mobil Super Synthetic discussed on here very much. I suppose that is because it's mostly on sold at auto parts stores with the usual parts store high price. I use up all available M1 rebates already for another vehicle. The Pennzoil rebate isn't really worth it anymore with the recent price increase. QSUD and Magnatec are about $19-20 at Walmart stores or online so why bother with Pennzoil rebate. Today I noticed the somewhat rare Mobil Super Synthetic at Rural King for $19. It should be good enough for 5-7 k OCIs in our Honda CRV grocery go-getter short-tripper. Any Super Synthetic fans out there?

Its seems to be a little hard to find but I did see it on WM online a week ago. But the truth I can get a lot of other full synthetics cheaper. I've never seen it on Rollback at WM.

I used it once in my wife's Focus. I would use it again at the right price.

As previously stated, it’s a bit hard to find. I would use it if I could find it as it is the only Mobil synthetic product that meets Chrysler MS6395 for my warranty purposes.

I like Mobil Super Synthetic as well... Dexos gen 2 approved is a good spec to meet. I'd buy it all day everyday at $19.

And 4wd is right... It's good for runs that are 7500 miles. In the "warranty" with MSS it say that or change interval in your manual whichever is longer.

Nope, never have. Never been available at WMs in this area. Never seen an exceptional deal or even a reasonable deal on MSS that made me want to look for it or use it. In these parts it reminds me of the previous Mobil Clean 7500, a true unicorn oil. Never seen here on store shelves.

With QSUD and Castrol Magnatec readily available at WM and every day reasonable price, those would be my choices in that tier syn oil.

I have a couple of jugs of MSS in the 0W-20 grade which I may use in the Subaru given its very short recommended OCIs of 6K.
Combining store deals with past Mobil MIRs, this oil came to something like eight bucks a jug, so it's certainly cheap enough.
We have a privately held regional retailer here, Meijer, that stocks MSS.
Think of an upscale version of Walmart and you'll have a good concept of the store.

Yeah, I've used MSS when I got it Elcheap-O and I liked it fine.

Isn't Mobil "Super Synthetic" just a bunch of Group III -
basically the same as SuperTech full synthetic, but a different bottle?

Has Chrysler MS6395 been superseded by another spec that applies?

Seems easy to meet:

Nah it probably isn't the same as Supertech Linctex. It is a group 3 oil for sure. But Warren Distribution or Citgo makes the Supertech oils.

On the contrary bb, it's exactly the same.
Just as Velveeta is exactly the same as a decent hard cheddar. After all, they're both labeled as cheese.
You're just paying for the name when you buy a brand name oil.
