Mobil 1™ Extended Performance 5W-30
No. of years owned:
I bought my 2006 Toyota Tacoma Doublecab TRD Off Road in August 2006. As a longtime user of Mobil 1, I wanted to get Mobil 1 in it as soon as possible. I changed the oil to Mobil 1 as soon as I got it home with 60 miles on the odometer. Now, six-and-a-half years later, I have over 317,000 miles on the truck, and have used Mobil 1 exclusively. I use Mobil 1 Extended Performance 5W-30 and extend my oil change intervals out to 10,000-12,000 miles. I have had no engine problems and the engine runs like new.
I rely on my truck in rough, off-road, cold winter and summer heat conditions that work the engine hard. I also tow a camper with this truck. This truck sees really tough service.
Mobil 1 has proven itself to me through performance in the vehicles I have owned, but with over 300,000 miles on this truck, and for it to be in the excellent condition it is, the value of using Mobil 1 over the long term is clear.
