Mobil 1??

Coming due for my first 'non-free' oil change. I'm considering going w/Mobil 1. My dealer is saying he'd be happy to use it,but at 3x the price,since I have the lifetime warranty,he feels I'd be wasting my money. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I don't know. If I'm doing the lifetime warranty I'm thinking I'll save money on the oil changes.

Ehh maybe its good oil I dont know. Its expensive, hard to find, and only experience I have with it is when my friend tried to use it in his Mustang GT. Engine knocked it tick like crazy when he switched to royal purple. He ended up draining it all out and went back to Mobile One and has never touched that stuff since.

Mobile one is a excellent proven motor oil that is relatively inexpensive, easily available in 5qt jugs at any walmart around the corner how can you go wrong? It also comes factory filled in high end performance cars such as the Corvette ZR1 and Z06...Good enough for me :-)

Well, I wouldn't.... You can find RP in any Pep Boys stores.
