How adept was the original Mobil 1, however, at 25,000 mile intervals?

I just wanted to add that XOM warranty is useless. They want a total engine tear down at your cost to prove that their oil failed your engine. I asked a bunch of shops near me and they are not willing to tear down since it takes so much time and shop space. (my oil turned into a gel, lost engine) they do not care for an oil sample with out the tear down.

Still trying to sell that scam? Do you really expect XM to buy you a new engine based on your word alone? Your own UOA showed the sample was not M1. When are you going to correct all of your YouTube vides with that info?

Why would they warranty something that clearly wasn't theirs, which you proved? IIRC it wasn't even engine oil. I'd say it's time to move on.

The tear down should be on your dime, it wasn't their oil, which once again has already been proven. If I were you I'd tread lightly, you could end up getting sued.

This.

Who the heck in their right mind expects an oil company to pay for something they had no part in? We already know the product wasn't engine oil, that was abundantly clear. Trying to force Mobil's hand to cover it will be understandably futile. The only path of potential recourse is through Walmart.

I agree it's starting to look more and more like a hoax.

And if Jooksing is the victim of the hoax, it's still the same thing, just like our Valvoline ATF tome from before. Mobil sells API certified Mobil 1. This wasn't what was found. If someone else tampered with the bottle or provided a counterfeit product, one cannot, realistically, expect Mobil to pay for the matter. It doesn't make things any easier on the victim, but that's reality.

Most people who care about their cars will change the oil and filter way before a year. Most people who go a year would do so using Dollar General store brand oil and a paper towel filter.

Itís nothing but a smear campaign. Nobody is that clueless... Mobil should actually go after him for continuing to say it is Mobil 1 when it clearly is not.
