    No and I have seen UOA on 'Bob' demonstrating higher wear metals than T6. In fairness, that was several years ago and prior to the newer formulations. This has always been more expensive here that T6 and Delo so not an option to me.

    Mobile 1 is the main oil I use in my gassers and put 252k on a 3.8 Genesis.

    I am sure it is fine if it meets the specs. I personally do not use Mobil products as I have not seen any demonstrable evidence to suggest their elevated cost carries any benefit. Same holds true with the Rotella line.

    I cant see the pic but if it's the one I think it is it's usually near 25/gallon at wal mart when delo and t6 are cheaper. Delo at Walmart last week was 56 bucks for 3 gallons and t6 has been 56 for 2.5 gallons for the last few months.

    If you are going to use one, use the Devlac. As for price, I just pay the price of Rotella, Mobil, or one of the others that meets the API standards. Keep your reciepts and record when you do the oil changes.

    Lastly, if you do a lot of short driving or cold weather ... change your oil more frequently. I just changed my oil at 4800 miles after the winter finally ended. I changed in Sept. 22, 2018 and just completed the change on April 20, 2019.

    I agree with your short trip oil changes but nobody else will. Be prepared to hear about that 4800 mile change. Lol

    I started with 4k oil changes and worked up to my current 8-9k. Was doing oil analysis the whole time. So far so good. Might go the full 10k.
