    I use Mobile 1 for all my vehicles. Chrysler only recommends Pensoil because they have a contract with them to supply oil for the factory. Mobile 1 use to be Chrysler's choice until the bankruptcy caused Mobile to lose what was owed to them which if I remember correctly was millions..

    IMO, Amzoil,Mobil 1, and PUP are great!! I'll stick with PUP for the next 8y/120,000 mile just for warranty purposes!!! 041srt oil filter.. My 3 cents....

    Why are you staying away from Mobile 1? I know of several LXs with over 200,000 miles going strong that used Mobile...

    You don't have to use PUP to keep warranty in effect. Just has to meet specs which almost all name brand oils do..

    Lots of better synthetics out there on the market

    I understand. I bet you had to deal with an AH service manager in the past.:mad:

    Can you tell me why it is not the same? Is there some empirical data out there or just your gut feeling?? And what better syns are out there and what makes them better? Links to research?

    I use and have used Mobile for decades and never any issues. I would appreciate if you have some info I missed?

    There is some reading and research out there on synthetics...
    Do a search for UOA (used oil analysis) and you will find some postings of various oils and what the results of a lab test were.
    You may also find a reference to a site which really gets into the oil issues (Bob the oil guy I think).

    Cons:

    The Mobil 1 5W-30 Synthetic is designed for most personal automobiles on the market today, however it is not adequate to meet the demands of high-performance racing motors or aviation engines.

    What is the best synthetic motor oil?
