Oil question

Just wondering,

I know Mobil 1 is good oil but has anyone used the Mobil 1 Truck and Suv oil?
If so what are your thoughts and do you like it? I almost hate to ask this question for fear of yet another oil debate. I am asking about this oil. Much thanks.

I've used the Mobil 1 on my previous car which was an audi and it was some good oil. As for oil for my ranger I just use Amsoil.

Thanks alot. I appreciated the analysis report. Looks like a winner. Were you using standard mobil 1 or the truck and suv? Again Thanks. Sounds like what I will switch to.

I was using the SUV oil. I doubt it matters much.
Sorry it took me so long to respond.

i use mobile one 5000 10W/30 in my truck. and it makes my engine sound a bit smoother. it used to have a little "ticking" sound at idle and it doesnt do it any more. i now swear by this stuff.

Oh I thought you were talking about just the regular oil. Actually does mobil1 make anything but synthetics now? I use the same oil in a 5w-20, works great for me.
