Thread: The old and new of oil ?
09-18-2013, 12:57 PM #11
I personally have been using Mobil 1 now for over 15 years with excellent results. I pretty much always buy new as I don't want other people's problems, and I can tell you that I have not added oil to any of my cars in that time.
Also, I worked in the quick lube industry for ~8 years and I can say that MOST of the lube techs that quick lubes hire are ROTTEN. I will never use a quick lube again as I don't want idiotic monkeys working on my car. As long as I am physically capable I will change my oil myself. Once I get to the point where I am no longer physically capable, I will take my vehicle to a mechanic that is skilled.

I look at it this way....Oil doesn't break down, it gets dirty....Synthetic oil is going to get just as dirty, just as fast as conventional oil. To me, it lasts no longer, but it does have better properties to help your engine. I think that is what you are paying extra for, not longer life between changes.....just my opinion
