so are you saying that you do not like the way mobile 1 is running in your engine or are you saying mobil 1 feels like its running better

I like the Castrol WAY more. And as was stated in another post, the Mobil does (as I have also read) burn oil more than the Castrol. Im sure someone else will say the exact opposite, thats just my thought(s) on it. I will be running Castrol on my next oil change.

I have heard this a few times that mobil 1 burns out seems like a bad choice

Does anyone else have an opinion about the castrol synthetic i am a little castrol bias cause thats all i use in other cars just never used the synthetic always 10w-40 gtx

Well I haven't noticed much burning with the Mobil 1...but then again I really haven't checked it that much :-/ I haven't had my car for about a month, but when I get it back I'll check the levels...also I'm due for an oil change...I'll let you know if I notice anything...
