Mobil 1™ 0W-30 Advanced Fuel Economy
No. of years owned:
When I bought this car, I really liked the styling, the power (291 hp from a straight 6), the comfort and the gadgets. What I wasn't a fan of was the 14 mpg as I do mostly in-town driving.
I moved to Mobil 1™ Advanced Fuel Economy, and as I needed to change or increase the fluids, I've started to switch to all synthetic to lower friction and increase gas mileage. I changed the transmission fluid and replaced it with Mobil 1™ Synthetic ATF (also using it in the power steering pump). When the time comes to swap differential fluid, I'll replace these with Mobil 1™ synthetics as well. The oil and ATF, along with a better air filter, have moved it from 14 to 17.3 mpg, which might seem small to an econo box, but it's more than 20% for this truck.
