Did your car run smoother after you switched to synthetic?smileboy said:I used castrol syntex, 26,500 mile already
i was using mobil 1, but now it doesnt seem the same quality. did you feel a difference when u switched to amsoil?Huge Ansoil fan. I just came over from the LX forums (sold my Hemi Magnum and got a 2012 Xb) where this has been discussed to no end.
Was always a Mobil 1 guy but they have relaxed their standards somewhat (no longer pure synthetic) and Amsoil is now the standard.
I'll switch to Amsoil after the 2nd oil change (I'm going to do the 1st at 1,000 mi to get the bulk of the break-in particles out of there) around 8,000 mi
eneos fluids (japanese oil) also has low viscosity, GREAT stuff. http://ampedperformance.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=7_62_63&products_id=91&zenid=bnv6tfu3ckhobeaq2jev5g1093to my knowledge, mobil is the only one using 0W-20
Actually yes I did. For one thing the MDS (the computer / lifter activated 4 to 8 cyl thingie) worked a lot better and the engine did seem just a tad smoother overall. All subjective of course, no track or dyno testing.i was using mobil 1, but now it doesnt seem the same quality. did you feel a difference when u switched to amsoil?
Orielly Auto sells their brand full synthetic in 0W-20. I don't know if any other brand has added 0W-20 since your post or not.to my knowledge, mobil is the only one using 0W-20
