quote:I would love to know what is that mysterious, Mobil 1 specific "break-in modifier(s)".
M1 has break in modifiers of some sort. others do not as far as i know.
quote:Mobil 1 being used as a factory recommended fill has nothing to do with the oil properties. It's all marketing, my friend.
M1 is the factory fill for Porsche, Viper, Corvette ect. if there was anything better to use for the engine, they would use it.
quote:Depending on the source, nearly half of all engine wear is caused by particles in the 1-25 micron range. These particles are small enough to get in tight spots and act like liquid sand paper. Even 100 grit sand paper can do the same damage as 10 grit over time. Initial fill is usually packed with these particles. Why keep them in there? It cost $20-$30 to get this garbage out of a high output engine. You're a tard.
