My Toyota 4Runner is a throwback to the good old days of 4-wheeling. It has on-demand 4 wheel drive, steel wheels, 5-speed manual transmission and cloth seats. It has been bulletproof and is still a fun vehicle for day-to-day driving, great in the snow and it even performs well on occasional off-road excursions.
Recently, I had a valve adjustment (seemed like the thing to do at 160,000 miles). The mechanics remarked to me when I picked up the truck (without asking) that he and his assistant were surprised at how incredibly clean and "like new" the valve train looked when they worked on it. I told him I have used Mobil 1™ oil since new and all he said was, "it figures". Also, at the last spark plug change I did a compression test and I got 200 psi in each cylinder. I credit regular Mobil 1 oil changes and Toyota quality. Mobil 1 seems like cheap life insurance for my truck. I wish you made human vitamins.
