hey, I've had 0w40 mobil1 in my satty(163k miles 1994 SL1) for a lil while. Would I benefit from getting some #132 for it? It doesn't loose much oil anymore but it should still help huh? --Matt

Help what? What would you be trying to help by adding this to Mobil 1, and how would you verify that it had helped or not? (If all you want to do is tinker with the oil in your car, then just consider my questions to be rhetorical. [Wink] )

Yes, they are. But I tend to assume that the chemists and engineers who came up with the formula for Mobil 1 know more about how to make a good oil than I do, and that what they came up with would be far better than anyting I could create by blending their product with someone else's. [Smile]
