turbo cars love rotella t6 5w40. mobil1 5w30 is garbage and shears too early causing engine damage.
You made the statement that Mobil 1 5W-30, "is garbage". Does Exxon/Mobil know this?

Of what particular experience does a company that manufactures heavy duty diesel oils have to offer gasoline powered cars?

Used oil analysis is to determine the condition of a particular engine and it's oil and not to make broad generalizations.
