Question:
Do Short Trips Require More Frequent Change-outs When Using Mobil 1™ Extended Performance?
Mobil 1™ Extended Performance is good for 15,000 miles or one year under normal operating conditions. What about severe operating conditions as defined by the owner's manual? In my particular case, I make a lot of short trips (5-6 miles). Otherwise, my driving pattern falls into normal operating conditions. I own a 2001 Acura 3.2 CLS. I drive about 10,000 miles a year. Can I keep changing Mobil 1 Extended Performance once a year, or do I need to change it more often because I make many short trips?

Answer:
As demonstrated in the Las Vegas taxi field test, Mobil 1™ Extended Performance will provide excellent performance under tough driving conditions. You can keep changing your oil once a year. If your driving habits change to routinely tougher driving conditions than those described above, we recommend you follow the advice in your manufacturer's manual for severe driving conditions.
