  1. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    Hi everyone, I've been trying to pick out the best oil to use on my '18 Diesel. This will be my first car using full synthetic and I'd like to pick one and stick with it. The one I was looking at online was the Mobil 1 ESP 5w30 that supposedly is specialized for diesel emission systems like...

    I know there are many very informative posts out here related to oil. Very informative, but I’ve made no conclusive headway in a situation I have. I purchased a used 2013 with only 32,000 kms (20,000 miles) on it. I’ve put 10000 kms (6,000 miles). The dealership changed the oil at purchase using...

  5. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Mobil 1 is discontinuing their 5W-40 ESP Formula M and are replacing it with 0W-30 ESP formula that meets the oil 5W-40 MB standard and their newest standard. This is excellent news for diesel owners as we should have easy access to a low saps 0W-30 shortly. I read MB is replacing all their...

    Large print says guaranteed protection up to 15,000 miles. Small print says, to maintain your vehicle warranty, go by their recommendations. What is does not say, is if your engine does fry up, how to claim this guarantee. But for a little more than a buck extra, thought I would try it...

    http://www.mobiloil.com/USA-English/MotorOil/Oils/Mobil_1_ESP_Formula_5W-30.aspx I changed my oil and filter over the weekend with about 6800 miles on the car. Had GM dexos 2 oil in it. It's too soon to tell since it's only been a few trips to work, but I suspect the car is getting just a bit...
  11. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Anyone know which would be a better oil filter? I can't seem to find a K&N oil filter anywhere. Not even for the 2011 or 2012. I can find Mobil 1 all over the place. Is there any advantages over one or the other? I just know I don't want a cheap piece of crap in my car. I have narrowed down to...

    I have been using 87 octane murphy's gas from Walmart. I looked up top tier gas and discovered that Mobil is one and also that the gas station across the street from me sells ethanol free gas. Anyway I filled my tank today with 89 octane Mobil fuel and it's like I have a new car. Quicker...
  16. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I was reading other forums after my buddy with a Spec B Legacy claims many steer away from Mobil 1 when it comes to turbos because it lacks zinc for proper lubrication. Anyone else heard of this? I'm changing my oil today and am going to try Castrol Edge full syn (32.99 for 5 quarts, special at...

    Guys and Gals: Plan my first oil change in October for a 2011 LS.I'll have maybe 2000 miles on the original factory stuff by then...currently at 52%. So call this precautionary and just getting ready for Winter. What have those of you done with Mobil 1 or other synthetics? Any reason not...
  18. General Discussion
    I just got my first oil change and was wondering, does anyone know if there is a Mobil 1 oil cap for the Cruze? Is there maybe a Mobil 1 cap for another vehicle that would fit the Cruze. Thanks.:)
