Rated 5 out of 5 Run your engine FOREVER! I own a 99 VW Golf . Ive repaired or replaced near every major part on this car but the engine which has never been touched. Only Mobil Delvac1 or Turbo Diesel 5w-40 used every 6-7000 miles since it came off warranty. Still get 50+ highway MPG and the only oil it burns is the diesel its supposed to. The car now has 432,000 mile on it! I attribute that to your oil as I know other TDI owners who use other brands that haven't made half that distance before rebuild or junk yard. Great stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 worry free performance When i bought my 1997 f250 from the original owner i didnt immediately switched to mobil 1 oil. I use my truck for some daily use, towing, and traveling and noticed some cold weather performance issues. I switched over and the hard starts went away, it ran smoother with less warm up time, and I've noticed small MPG gains. I've even stretched a couple oil changes out to almost a year and 8k miles and I could still see through the oil when i drained it. Money well spent! October 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 Beneficial in 1985 Mercedes 300D Turbo Diesel Quiets valve train noise better than any other brand I have tried. This product keeps cam follower noise completely subdued all the way to the next oil change. With all the other brands I have tried some valve train noise begins to be heard a few thousand miles after oil change and by the time the oil change mileage is reached the valve train noise is quite conspicuous. This would suggest that this oil can maintain excellent shear strength throughout its useful life. No small comfort here when I consider all the other crazy expensive parts this stuff may be keeping out of metal to metal contact . August 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 Why would you use anything else? I have been using it in a 2009 GMC with a DuraMax. I tow a winterized 5th wheel rec trailer which is heavy and a 5th wheel 16 foot dump trailer when not on holidays. I have driven the Highway through **** and the grapevine at 30 deg C at posted speeds which caused the cooling fans to come on and the temp to rise. I now have 169,000 km and change oil at factory recommended times. The engine has not missed a beat and started easily in -30 deg C with out being plugged in. I have been impressed with how well the oil flows at some of our cold temp and how well the oil sticks at the high temps. April 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 Fantastic oil for light duty trucks My 2000 Dodge 2500 tower a 40.5 foot fifth wheel so I wanted the best motor oil I could find for my truck. I now have over 220000 miles on it and purrs like a kitten. I change it every 7000 miles along with either the Mobile oil filter or the K&N filter. If your looking for a full sythitic oil for your light duty truck this is it. Thanx Mobil1. I'll see you at 500,000 miles I'm sure of it. January 4, 2015
