Just today I went Mobile 1 extended life (good for 15,000 miles)

I think I will try Amsoil next.

Do you guys think I will really be ok for 15,000 miles like the mobile 1 EL is rated for? or should I change it sooner. (I also used mobile 1's 15,000 mile filter). I too am a little brainwashed with the "change your oil every 3k miles)

Amsoil Signature Series lubricants are severe service 15,000 miles or one year oil change interval.

Mobil 1 EP is normal service 15,000 mile rated.

To put that in perspective, Amsoil is rated up to 25,000 miles or one year (normal service).

I'm running Mobil 1 EL in my SHO right now. I will be getting rid of it before it gets anywhere near that mileage on it, but I wouldn't run it that long. I was thinking 7k miles was plenty long for my taste. I have no doubts that Mobil 1/Amsoil Full Synthetics are capable of going that long while retaining their original properties, but I DO NOT trust ANY filter for that long of a change interval.

PS: It is funny to listen to you talk about Amsoil Unleashedbeast. No one can deny that Amsoil is one of, if not THE best oils available, but the way you talk about it has me thinking they are paying you to "plug" their product lol.

Royal Purple and Amsoil filters will easily make 15,000 miles. The internal media is nano-fiber, not cellulose or cellulose/synthetic blends.

Not funny at all. We have a dedicated UOA thread on SVT Performance in the GT500 section. Not one oil tested to date has outperformed Amsoil 10W-40 or 10W-30 in the GT500. I talk about it because it's proven to go the distance and constantly outperform in demanding applications.

I'm pretty sure Mobil 1 filters are nano-fiber as well, correct? I still don't feel comfortable running oil/filters for that long of an interval. Of course I never ran conventional oil for as long as they say you could either.

I am not denying Amsoil's quality by any means, I recommend it too many people and the only reason I don't run it currently is I haven't found a dealer I want to go through.(Planning to use it when the new car gets here, after running conventional for the initial break-in of course) Regardless, I still think you're a funny guy.

No, they are synthetic cellulose blends. Amsoil EaO oil filters on the Mustang are rated to be used up to 25,000 miles or one year. Severe service schedule is 15,000 miles.

Suppose someone is hitting the drag strip 2-4 times a month.....OR, they drive like they are on a drag strip when they are getting onto the highway etc. will the Mobile 1 extended life 5w-20 still hold up? Should I think about changing it out sooner....is it even the right oil for what I'm doing. I already cooked one barring and had it replaced under warranty (the whole motor) and I don't want to do that again.

If you daily drive pretty hard, i wouldn't run Mobil 1 Extend Life for the full 15,000 miles. I'd think 10,000 would be pretty acceptable though. Changing oil more frequently can do nothing but good for your engine.

I been using Mobil 1 full synthetic for years in all my vehicles. I use the viscosity level recommended by the manufacturer.

The exception is my 2012 F150 EcoBoost......it's still under warranty and goes to the dealer for everything!

A friend works as a fleet mechanic at a large utility company. He told me they are using Mobil 1 full synthetic out to 15,000 miles, and changing the filter every 5,000 miles. He seems to think it works as long as you change the filter often.

I run Royal Purple in about all my vehicles except for my 77 granada beater only because the engine is wore and when you add synthetic to a wore engine you tend to loose more oil due to it's better lubrication properties.

This is also a really good deal well better than Walmart or any of the local auto parts store, sure wish I lived closer than 100 miles to Summitracing!

37.97 for 5 quarts what a deal
