Question:
Using Mobil Synthetics in ATVs with Single Oil Supply for Transmission and Engine
I've been considering using your Mobil synthetic oil in a couple of ATVs I own; however, I'm concerned about what effect it may have on their transmissions since both the engine and the transmission use the same oil supply for lubrication. One transmission is gear driven (Bombardier Traxter 498cc) the other is Honda's Rincon, which uses its new 3 speed automatic transmission. Are your synthetics recommended for this kind of application?

Answer:
We would recommend Mobil 1 Racing 4T 10W-40 motorcycle oil since it has been designed specifically where transmission performance is important as well as engine lubrication.
