Hi Gang,

I am contemplating going with a synthetic oil for my '98 F150 SC 4.6L 4x4. I am leaning towards using Mobil 1. Both Mobil 1 and Castrol Syntec oils are readily available here in my area. My dilemma is that the Castrol Syntec is cheaper by a bit over the Mobil 1 but I am thinking that since Mobil has been around the longest, it has the edge with more experience and development time over Castrol. I am going with the old adage that you get what you pay for! Am I right in this or is there no difference between them?
Thanks!
Ron

Group, I would like to add my $.02 also
I have a 1985 mercury grand marquis 302 etc..

I have had Mobil 1 in it since I bought it new
about a year ago I was coming home from vacation from Michigan
(I live in Indiana) and right off the get go my radiator blew
Antifreeze all over the road. well I decided to keep going instead of
waiting for a state trooper to stop and have one of his towing companies
gouge me $400 for a new radiator.
So I set off for the 150 mile trip
keeping an eye on my temp gauge
my gauge got up to 337 when I pulled into my mechanic garage
he was amazed that I was able to go that long with no antifreeze.
We let the car cool down for about an hour then checked the oil
it looked really baked but still liquid
He told me if it wasn't for the Mobil 1 you would have fried the motor.
I now have Mobil 1 in everything including my Lawn Mower
So my point? you ask
Mobil 1 saved my motor. Why would you go with anything else?
and no I do not work for MOBIL or EXXON but I do have a speed pass!

Sorry about the long post
TINY
