Question:
How Long to Wait Before Switching New Car to Mobil 1?
Why are there so many opinions when to put Mobil 1 in a new vehicle? It seems like everyone that I ask, and I'm talking about mechanics, have a different opinion on when I can switch from the original factory oil in my wife's "09 Ford Fusion 3.0 V-6 and put in Mobil 1. I have quite a car collection and I have Mobil 1 in all my other cars. This may sound funny, but it actually makes me nervous not having it in her new car. It currently has 3,000 miles on it. Temperatures of -20° are common for weeks at a time here in Grand Forks, ND.

Answer:
You can use Mobil 1 as soon as possible.  We recommend you use Mobil 1 0W-20 Advanced Fuel Economy for maximum cold weather protection and a chance to also maximize fuel economy while providing the protection you are used to with the Mobil 1 products used in your other vehicles.
