Mobil 1 made a huge change in 2005-2006 for the worse. Their once "fully synthetic" formulations that were top tier were re-formulated with hydrocracked petroleum with less aggressive additive packages. It was no longer the bullet proof formulation that made Mobil 1 the #1 choice in America.
2014 Mustang GT custom ordered to replace the GT500: Sterling Gray, NAV, Recaros, Brembos, Glass Roof, back up camera, 6 speed auto, loaded
2012 Focus Titanium - 18" wheels with handling package
