Mobil 1 Truck & SUV oil? - UPDATE

I've been using Mobil 1 5w-30, and changing every 5000, for some time now with good results. It's getting about time for a change, and I noticed a jug of Mobil 1 5w-30 Truck & SUV oil in the store. Do any of you know anything about this oil? The Mobil 1 web site is kind of vague...

"Mobil 1 Truck & SUV's key benefits include:

Extra performance additive helps provide exceptional performance under all operating conditions, and additional protection for engines that operate under heavy load or stress, including towing, hauling and other severe service.

Unique fully synthetic formula helps reduce the formation of harmful engine deposits and sludge to keep engines cleaner longer.

Outstanding performance during the maximum oil change interval recommended in your owner's manual.

Approved for use and exceeds warranty requirements for gasoline, turbocharged and diesel engines in the following applications:

ACEA A1/B1, A5/B5-04

GM 6094M

Ford WSS-M2C929-A

MS-6395 "

I've done quite a bit of searching, and not found much. I have Emailed Mobil 1, but it will probably be a while before I get a response. I'll post what they say.


"The Mobil1 Truck and SUV 5W30 has more anti-oxidants compared to the
Classic Mobil1 which will help with oil thickening, sludging and a
better choice for hard working gasoline engines. They are the same
price, so you might as well utilize the Mobil1 Truck and SUV 5W30 if it
is available to you.

Mobil1 oil filters remove 99.2% of contamination on the
multiple-pass efficiency test which is the best, has a synthetic
fiberglass media compared to paper materials used by other
manufacturer's. The product has a strong metal backplate that can handle
over 10 time the normal operating oil pressure so it will not leak or
burst and also less than 1psi initial restiction of oil flow at
start-up. As you can see, you have the best filtration and flow all in
one oil filter."

Thank you for choosing ExxonMobil products.

I'm resurrecting this old thread to see how many miles I could get out of this oil. I've been using it, along with mobil 1 filters, since I bought my truck and I usually change it around 5k miles. Am I wasting good oil?

The only way to truely tell is to have your oil tested.

I'm going to say yes, since you are using a "high-end filter". It's usually the filter and its effectiveness that's the "bottleneck" when it comes to long oil change intervals with synthetics.

Thats the oil I use and I usually do a change every 5000 miles because I'm paranoid. I've heard of people going 7500 miles with no problems.
