After I poured the new M1 oil, I noticed that it was meant for high mileage cars/trucks. My Mountaineer only has 36000 miles on it. Do I need to change out the oil or can I run the current oil that's in it?
Obviously Mobil's mind went before yours. I don't know what possesed them to come up with that babble.
This was a question asked in Ask Mobil-1 section of their website:
quote:Mobil 1 0W-40 is named "European Car Formula." Will it be okay to use it in my 2002 Subaru Impreza WRX, which has a four-cylinder boxer-style intercooled turbo motor? Or, will there be a Japanese formula of Mobil 1 to follow?
Folks make fun of Amsoils' advertising, but some of the Mobil stuff is also pretty lame ...
The high mileage formula was a rather transparent attempt to respond to Valvoline "Maxlife", which has apparently sold pretty well. Witness similar products from Castrol, Quaker State, etc that have recently shown up ....
