    Mobil 1 5W30 in Subaru Outback Turbo 3750 mi OCI

    Thanks for all the info. I thought M1 5W30 was more sought after in Subaru turbos, I guess not the case. I may just get a few jugs of the Rotella and run that. I really don't care about fuel mileage in this car since it's rarely driven and only gets low 20s/gal anyhow. Thanks again for all...

    Mobil 1 5W30 in Subaru Outback Turbo 3750 mi OCI

    The manual recommends 3750 oci on all turbo models with any 5W30. I can get the M1 5W30 for less than $5/qt, so it's no big deal. Just seeing if anyone goes 5K on the turbos?

    Mobil 1 5W30 in Subaru Outback Turbo 3750 mi OCI

    Hello all, a quick question for Subaru owners. I just bought a 2008 Outback 2.5 XT Turbo which calls for 5W30. I'm running M1 5W30 which I hear it loves from other Subaru owners. But, Subaru recommends 3750 mile oci with the turbo models. Is it just a waste of money or can I extend these...

    OK, will an engine last 1,000,000 miles on 6-8 OCI

    I'll say maybe and I'll tell you why. I consider the Toyota 3.4L V6 (and the 2.4L 4cyl) some of the finest engines every built and I personally know delivery drivers here in CO that have the current mileages on their odos with no rebuilds, except the 2.4L had a rebuilt top end . All of them...

    Mobil 1 0W30

    That's what I thought, thanks for the info. Do you think these Amsoil filters can go 15k miles?

    13,000 miles on cheap dino !!!

    The longest I've gone (by mistake) is 18,000 miles on Delvac 5W40 in a V6 Toy 4Runner. Good thing it was Delvac, I'm sure there would have been problems with regular dino!

    Mobil 1 0W30

    Well, I'm back down in Boulder at 5200 ft. But, it still gets below zero quite a few times a year. I want to go 8K+ oci with an Amsoil filter. My current oci is 7K with M1 5W30. I'm not into analysis, so it's just a guess which has been fine for 90K miles!

    Mobil 1 0W30

    I haven't been here in a few years and I have a question. I know i'm lazy and haven't used the search funtion, but what do you guys think of M1 0W30 synthetic? 5W30 was out of stock, so I went with the 0W30 instead. Seems like a smart move for the winter.

    OCI-3,000 mile/Synthetic

    "OCI of 3k with dino is ridiculous" Then 3k or less OCI with a Synthetic would be ludicrous! My last change with synth was 2600 miles. The reason because of a winter-short trip-fuel dillution issue. There are many reasons for differing OCIs and oil uses.

    Four (4) different Castrol 0W-30's

    Gmorg explains it quite well. As for AEHaas going to the dark side with a 40Wt, I think he's partial to specific oils for different applications.

    I only see 5W40 on their site, which is not easily navigated. Anyone have a link to the 0W30?

    GC Tacoma V6, anyone

    I've run GC Green in my 3.4L Tacoma the past 7 OCIs. Great -0F starts and no consumption, as expected from a heavy 30 weight. It purs like a sewing machine when fully warm. Although, I have no UOA, I know the truck likes the oil. I'll run it to 6000 miles this interval and get a UOA...

    It seems like Mobil 1 75w90 is good all 'round in a toyota taco

    M1 75W90 Gear Fluid will work fine in that Toyota Trans, many many people are doing it. But, I think SF MTL-P 75W85 is perfect for the Toyota 5Speed Trans.
