Which Mobil 1 is Appropriate for a Supercharged Porsche

Protecting An Infrequently Used Engine
I use my Porsche infrequently. Will Mobil 1 drain away from the parts more quickly and therefore potentially leave them "dry" when I re-start the engine. Is there anything I can do to minimize this pr...
Any motor oil is going to drain off the internal components of your engine when it is shut off. It is not likely that the components will be completely dry, but after an extended time the amount of oi...
