My '99 4Runner has seen nothing but M1 since it had 10,000 miles on it and now with 175k on it I have zero leaks and the engine is just as strong as my mom's '99 Runner with 80,000 less miles or at least in multiple 1/4 mile runs and both were equally slow.
I now run M1 in my STI and have no intentions of changing brands and if I had an ST it would get the same.
Oh, but, but...the, mysterious, "experts", a bobistheoildisinformation say Mobil 1 is, "garbage"! How can your story be true?!
