Excellent oil

published

This oil is excellent in the Buick 3800 V6, no complaints whatsoever...ok maybe oxidation is a little high. Shear stability is very good though and so is the additive package.

I have been putting it in this engine for a number of years now. I think the formula has changed once in the time I used but it still seems to be more or less just as good.

Purchased in March 2019.

Excellent, stopped noisy camshaft tappets

Found this oil on heavy discount at Supercheap. Said they were not restocking Mobil because it was too expensive and didn't move. My dads Honda CR-V had a noisy top end. After flush, filter and new Mobil 1 the noise had gone. Not sure if I would pay the premium price next time around, but the CR-V sure does run well now.

BRILLIANT!!

This oil is very good for my engine, no dramas with it, this is the same exact oil that my local ford dealership uses in services, this oil is well recommended for anyone wanting some awesome performance, Mobil 1 is the best and even better than Castrol oils all the way

Only Oil I use

published

Lost my 4x4 in a river, pulled it out and drained cylinders via spark plug removal. Drove for 10km listening to a loud equal coming from the engine, pulled the dipstick and the oil had emulsified to a yellow custard but the engine did not seize and went on to do another 160,000 km fault free. Try doing that with a lesser oil.

Mobil1 5W30 Dexos1

published

Good quality synthetic oil. Car ran very smooth on it. Good cold start flow, much better than Castrol Edge 5W30 but I guess that because of it's PAO base stocks. Edge 5W30 isn't a proper synthetic.
Have had the chance to try Motul 300V 5W30. Sure it's twice the price but it's twice as good as M1. Improved oil pressure & VVTi performance.
smooth, proper synthetic(although it doesn't have as much PAO in it as older brews has)
RRP is a bit step

Mobil 1 starts it life as the highest quality oil you can get before it’s refined into Mobil 1

PAO isn't the best!... Poly-ol-Ester (Group 5) is the best base stock u can get!.

Engine, its condition, and how u drive it; these things determine whether or not you need to use premium. Depending where u live... higher octane doesn't always mean higher QUALITY. Fuel-cleanliness and octane are 2 different things.

Mobil 1 is a very good choice and my favourite oil. Is it still produced using Group 4 PAO base stocks?

I use Mobil 1 5W-30 in both my Toyota RAV4 and Corolla. I buy 20L drum at a time from a Mobil distributor and decant into my 5L container. Works out around $69 per 5L of oil. Much moe economical this way. Can't rate this oil highly enough!

Hi there, my car is 2004 toyota crown, v6 3000 engine, it has engine oil leakage problem, can I use 5w50 mobil 1 as my engine oil to reduce leakage? thanks

Hi Leo, does your Crown have the 1MZ-FE 3.0L V6 engine in it? If so, the Mobil 1 DataTek website recommends Mobil 1 5W-30 or Mobil Super 2000 X2 10W-40.

Choosing the correct oil viscosity really depends on the climate you live in. There are lots of good websites out there explaining this. If your car is a Japanese import, then the manual will probably state a quite thin oil viscosity, similar to the northern states of USA, as it's quite cold in these regions.

In warmer climates eg. in the Southern hemisphere between the Equator and the Tropic of Capricorn, then you would want to select a slightly higher viscosity of oil, e.g. Mobil 1 5W-30 or 5W-50 if it's really warm.

If you have oil leaks in your engine though, then proper repairs and regular preventative maintenance of your engine really needs to be carried out on a regular basis. Regular engine oil changes with synthetic engine oil (preferably from new), = a happy healthy engine. Hope this helps.
