Question:
Do Oil Stabilizers Make Conventional Oil Equal to Synthetics
I recently replaced the engine in my 1991 GMC Jimmy S15 and was considering using conventional motor oil with Lucas Oil oil stabilizer added to it. Would I accomplish the same thing by using Mobil 1 oil?
-- Lance White, Garland, TX
Answer:
Mobil 1 fully synthetic motor oil exceeds the industry’s toughest standards and outperforms all conventional oils. We do not recommend adding engine oil additives to any lubricant. The additives in an oil are carefully balanced and the addition of other additives can de-stabilize the oil and cause additives to drop–out of solution. Adding ANY additive to a conventional oil will not produce an oil with the kind of protection that Mobil 1 provides . Go with the Mobil 1!
