    Life after free oil changes.

    My daughter has a 2018 (and a half, if that makes a difference) Rogue Sport. Wants me to pick an oil and she mentioned Mobil 1. I narrowed to Mobil 1 Extended and Mobil 1 AFE, both in 0w20. I know Extended is a couple bucks more but the rebate is a couple bucks more. Anybody have pros and cons...

    What Year Did you Start Using Synthetic Motor Oil?

    1979 or '80 in a 1978 Olds Cutlass. It had a small V8, I believe 260 cu in. I didn't use Mobil 1 consistently until I bought my first house in 1985. I did read about Mobil 1 in either Popular Science or Popular Mechanics in the 70's.

    Ya, or a Gremlin. Surprisingly their the Wix made Napa 41040, match for the AC Delco PF47.

    Napa Platinum date code

    You're probably right. But I will feel better bringing them back, they won't be on my mind.

    Napa Platinum date code

    Did a search and the Platinum was out in 2011-12. I have an antique. I'm going to bring them back and maybe pick up a couple (if they have more current dates) at the end of the month They are on on sale all April.

    Napa Platinum date code

    Thanks for the reply. Ya, it looked like regular dates on them. But I didn't think the Platinum was around in 2011.
