    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...

    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.

    Any PAO Group IV basestock in Castrol Syntec?

    This excludes GC 0W30. So, even in newer formulations do any Castrol Syntec varieties contain any PAO Group IV basestock? Or, is it all Group III like everyone seems to think?

    Manufacturer Recommended OCI

    I see a lot of people looking for oils that meet 10K and 15K Man. OCI requirements. Why not just change your oil at 5K or 7.5K and be safe?

    Thicker vs. Thinner for Cold Starts....once again

    Thinner oils for cold starts to flow to top end? Thicker oils for cold starts to protect the bottom end? And many might ask why would a thinner oil not protect? I don't know.

    Castrol Syntec 0W30 Red Label GC vs. Red Label USA

    This question is in regards to the Castrol Syntec 0W30 Red Label made in the USA and the Syntec Red Label (GC 0W30) made in Germany. Does anyone know if the two meet the exact same specs? I know the GC meets ACEA: A3/B3 B4 and BMW LL-01. Does the US made meet any more or less?

    Burning 1 Qt of Oil per fillup!!

    A friend of mine just bought a newer Toyota pickup after his engine died at 290K on the old 22RE. I was floored when he told me the old one burned a QT of oil at every gas fillup for the last 100K miles. (It was abused early in it's life) He said he never changed the oil, just added a QT when...

    Question About Moly and Engine Break In

    Answer me this, If Moly is a friction modifier, thus reducing wear, then why do so many people want an oil high in Moly to "break in" their new engine? Just doesn't make sense. Why not use an oil low in FMs to properly break in your new engine?
