Re: Motor Oil from factory?

it really doesnt matter what they used in it from the factory. You can use whatever Brand you want. I have used the Mobil 1 ext. performance in my Jeep from day 1 with a K&N gold filter.

And I would say when you said "mineral oil" they thought you meant real mineral oil. Of course they would tell you to not put mineral oil in a Jeep....LOL

Not to turn this into a which oil is best thread, as I run both Mobil 1 and PP. However, when I ran Mobil 1 in my 4.7 I had about 1/2 QT burn off between 3.5k changes. Since switching to Pennzoil PP, I don't lose a drop. Others have had the same experience. It depends on the engine. In my other vehicle Mobil 1 doesn't burn off.

Re: Motor Oil from factory?

Ive used the Mobil 1 ext performance in all my cars. I currently run it in my stroked/forged 4.7 Jeep and my wifes Lexus IS. Ive also used it in ultra high performance vehicles like a 3000GT VR4 and Dodge Stealth TT's that were over 600 hp. Ive never experienced any oil loss. That sounds more like the vehicle burning the oil than the oil just disapearing....but thats more of an opinion since Ive never owned yor vehicles. No doubt I have heard good things about the Penzoil...but Ill stick with what I have used the last 10 years with excellent results.

Re: Motor Oil from factory?

I just picked up 8 kn gold oil filters and three jugs of mobil 1 synthetic. I've always had good luck with mobil 1 and it's affordable.

Re: Motor Oil from factory?

i have never heard of regular oil being called mineral oil. they probably thought you were actually going to put mineral oil in it.

Re: Motor Oil from factory?

I finally put Pennzoil Ultra 5W30 in it today. Had to go and get the filter from the stealership (3 days delivery time). Seems to be running smooth. Too exactly 6 qts to fill it up.
