Question:
Does Mobil 1 Have a High-Mileage Motor Oil for Performance Cars?
I have a 2003 BMW 530I. It has about 75K miles. I am starting to smell some oil burn from the engine so I thought it may be wise to switch to a high mileage formula of Mobil 1. The website says to use Mobil 1 0W-40 but there is no high mileage option at that viscosity. Would 5W-30 be the best choice of a high mileage oil or would you recommend an alternative?
-- John Ploetz, Oak Hill, VA
Answer:
For an SAE 40 viscosity grade recommendation, we recommend Mobil 1 High Mileage 10W-40.
