Mobil 1

Getting ready for oil change. Is there a difference between 5/20 Mobil 1 synthetic and 5/20 Mobil 1 advanced high performance synthetic?

The best answer is maybe yes and maybe no!!!! Is it worth the extra $$$$ again the same answer. My thinking is if the standard synthetic oil is real good and we all know it is and all the testing says it is as well how much better do we really need???

Back in the mid 70's I read all the reports on Mobil 1 that I could find. After reading nothing but GOOD stuff I believed them switch all my vehicles to it and have never looked back. Mobil 1 is still real good so I have not been proven wrong.

Not all synthetic oil is the same. Checkout “bobistheoilgod.com”. The advanced synthetic is probably the pure synthetic while the other is a synthetic from a lower base stock.

Not worth the price. Just change. regularly. My Dodge 1 ton still ran great at 310000 miles when sold.
Mobil one from start. current Dutchstar 73000 still runs perfect. Reg maintenance. I use Goodstuff in tank. Really works. Mileage up 1 mile per gallon. Now get 7 mpg instead of 6.2.

I'm not finding the oil you refer to. Mobil 1's site lists an Advanced Fuel Economy product, and an extended performance product, but not one as you describe.

Both are 5 weight oils. Both are fully synthetic. The viscosity does not change. 5W20 just means it is a 5 wt oil that has viscosity enhansers that protects like a 20 wt. The difference is advanced has more or different additives. I was lucky enough to go to school on oils. Thank you Delta Air Lines.

Also keep in mind there are two kinds of synthetics out there. One is the mobil 1 type, which really is synthetic. Never came out of the ground (except for a bit in each container they refer to as "carrier oil". It's polyalphaolefin, which is created by reacting two gasses. PAO doesn't even start to burn until over 450deg F.

The other kind of "synthetic" is made by taking dino oil and running it through a catalytic process that cases short and broken hydrocarbon chains to form longer ones. better perhaps than a standard refinery product, but not as good as PAO.

If you have the time, this link is one of the best reads I've seen on oil. The author/engineer thinks outside the box and does not conform to standard convention.

holy crap there's a lot of info in that blog. but if there's ever been a stereotypiical engineer that needs an editor, it's that guy.

general racing rule of thumb is to run the lowest viscsity oil that will provide suffucuent OP at hot idle. Generally, tht's 7-10psi at 250 drg F OT at between 700 and 1000 rpm.

anything thicker than that is costing you gas mileage, horsepower, and cold start wear protection.
