I plan on using Mobil 1 5w20 synthetic oil and I was wondering how often I should change it?
I also don't like K&N because of a "Resin" in the filer media listed on the label. I don't want my oil exposed to some mystery resin and floating through my cylinders. Remember the Arco graphite oil with all those black particles. AVOID FRAM.Dixietwister said:The Mobil One oil filter has great spec's. I would not use the K&N. It does not have a one way valve built into it, as even the cheapest filters have.

I have both and the XL7500 is not listed as a full synthetic. My engineer friend uses the Amsoil bypass in his S2000 and a pre lube but will not use the 7500 series oil, only the 2000 series.
Too much BS out there...no kidding! This subject has been hashed over to the point that the dead horse we flogged got pulverized. No one in their right mind is going to do anything other than to follow their manual's recommendations regarding oil type and change intervals. Those who are not in their right mind risk warranty issues. I thought the oil thing had been buried. Have some respect for the dead.teebag said:I have 68,000 miles on my Hemi truck with two oil changes and 4 filters changed. My oil is cleaner than any of yours
Sorry to get on the soap box guys, but there is too much BS out there.
kangol99 said:where can I find 5w20 Mobil 1 and a Mobil 1 oil filter? How much are you guys paying for Mobil 1 synthetic oil? They had it on sale at target this past weekend for $4.25 a quart but they didn't have 5w20.
Hi, II kings. Ever do a post-mortem on any of your filters on your new C to see if they were in fact finding metal particles to trap? And is your drain bolt magnet catching anything of note? If so, how's your current Hemi compare to other motors you've used the magnets on?II kings 9:20 said:I can't argue with ink, I use syntec 5w20 for now and change at 6K, my X5 also used syntec and had a 15K inerval, it was leased and had free maintanence so I went with 15K which is what the stealership recommended too, follow the book. I am a M1 fan so now that 5w20 is available I will switch as soon as my cases of syntec run out that I got for $3.48/qt. I also use Filtermag and a drain bolt magnet.
