i run mobil 1 in everything, my camaro, truck, mustang, wifes volvo, even my lawn mower (seriously). i love the stuff.
i used to run only kendall in my mustang back when i was bracket racing it a lot, great stuff, but i switched to synthetic to see if i could get an extra edge. well, i dont know about the extra edge, but i had an oil pump relief fail and blew my filter apart, and drained my motor. the car was cold, so no smoke, plus i was about half asleep, and i didn't notice the zero pressure until i drove the car over 5 miles on the freeway! i kid not, i almost crapped my pants, but the car was running quiet and fine, so i actually thought the factory gauge died, as it was below zero. well when i pulled over i found the ugly truth. i figured the motor was done, so i filled it back up, put on a filter, and drove half an hour home (with my dad following), and the car ran same as ever.
i pulled the motor and tore it apart anyway, only to find.....nothing!, but a couple scratches in a main bearing. i had the crank polished, threw a set of bearings in, and the car is still running good today, 240K on the clock. i was amazed to say the least, and contributed the feat primarily to the syn it had in it.
just my story (its true), about syn oil [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]
