I have recently switched using regular oil to synthetic and the last oil changed i used the mobil 1 5w30 truck and suv synthetic instead of the regular mobil 1 5w30? does this offer any extra protection? i drive the truck about 100 miles per day just wondering if anyone used it yet or not

They are almost the same oils, its pretty much just marketing, but yes run Mobil one, either one you'll be fine....No FRAM filters please too... Mobil one filters, Purolator PureOne's, Wix, K&N, all good oil filters, FRAM=Bad...very bad

As said there is almost no difference between them, marketing. ;)

whats wrong with the fram filters?

I know several years ago there was some testing done and they did very poorly.

I remember that test.

If I remember correctly, parts of the filter element actually ripped off!
