Mobil 1 Annual Protection Synthetic Oil

Just saw an advert for this. I wonder if using this would prevent the intake guy from scolding my wife if she was 2000 miles past the recommended change interval, again... It was on a 2010 SF GLS. I'm also wondering is this 'exceeds' the recommendations for our 2017 SFS 2.0T.

Any thoughts?

Maybe for an old classic car that is driven once in a while. I use Mobil 1 but stay in the 5 month/5000 mile OCI. A lot of our driving is in and around our home with a bit of Interstate driving.

You still have to follow the manufacturer's recommended OCI for warranty purposes so under warranty there is no reason to use this OIL IMO especially at the $49 per 5 quart jug at Walmart. Also, if one lives in a cold climate, short trips etc I do not believe any oil will live well for a year in the sump. Plus their EP is good for 15,000 miles and can be had for about $28 normally at Walmart.

I'm almost able to visualize service manager's getting extremely nervous about this Exxon/Mobil claim. We all know that one of their income producing bread and butter offerings are the "severe/normal" OCI's.

I read the entire enchilada claims on their web site link. What data they report IS impressive. And I suppose it's as factual as they can present. If it wasn't, Mobil has a lot on the line with these claims. Their integrity and customer base, for one. And I'm not just talking about someone like me. I'm recalling such major OEM's (Corvette, for one) that specify Mobil synthetic products as part of their and the owner's responsibilities in maintaining the warranties.

The fact that these tests were performed on heat packing turbo's caught my eye. What have we been taught over the years about turbo's, heat, and oil? Precisely.

How does this 1 year/20k claim impact our warranty? We already know what Hyundai is going to say. "WARRANTY DENIED!"

There's no disputing Mobil 1's reputation. And this "proprietary" claim. These engineers may have found the key ingredient to pull this claim off. And they're gonna remain silent.

What do we have to lose by trying this? An engine? No warranted repair? Who's gonna step up to the plate, face the high cheese sales pitch, and take one for the team?

I'm almost crazy enough to try it. Hmm...a year, huh? 20,000 miles? Mobil gonna buy me a new motor if I launch a couple pistons up into the stratosphere?

Leap of faith, that's what this is. Look how long it has taken us to get away from the 3 mo/3k intervals. Some still haven't. We get nauseous and nervous at going 5k between oil changes. 20,000 will have some seeking therapy. I might be one of them.

But, what if the claims are true and it really works?

If the car's under warranty, follow the OCI specified by Hyundai.

Wait, who's scolding your wife? For going 2k over the due date? What oil is he putting in and what is his suggested OCI?

I've used Mobil 1 EP for years on my 2003 2.7 santa fe. I take long swings through Canada and have made at least three trips that hit at or slightly above 15,000 miles for my annual oil change. Not long ago I pulled the oil pan to re-glue it and there was zero sludge in the pan. Very clean. Right now have 170k miles on the car. And yes, the difference between EP and regular Mobil 1 is about $2.00 per 5 quart jug.

A lot of this comes down to engine design. I would agree that on some vehicles 20,000 miles might be possible. On others, I would never suggest going beyond 5,000 simply because of what I have seen. I am not in a position to comment on whether I think Hyundai engines could or could not go that distance. I would not want to risk the warranty on my $30,000+ vehicle over a desire to save a few bucks now.

For the person who sees Mobil 1 at $50 per 5 quarts jugs....You need to try a different Walmart. About $20 cheaper in my area for 5 quarts of Mobil 1 and I run it because I choose to even though it is not required. That way I have a safety margin if I have to work the vehicle hard, go beyond the normal change interval for some reason, run from the zombie apocalypse, etc....

It's $50 everywhere. This is a new oil, Mobil 1 Annual Protection. Lots of talk about it on BITOG already.

Mobil has online rebates too. Just filled my form out for 2-$12 rebates on 2-5 quart jugs at $25.50 each from Walmart. A years worth of oil for me.

If you watched the Mobil video where they tested the new oil on 3 vehicles for supposedly 120,000 miles (not everyday driving like soccer moms etc but in a test facility) they tore one engine down and it looked great. They did not show all 3 engines having been torn down to inspect (that bothered me) . The real issue with me is the everyday driving soccer mom who lives in Wisconsin or VT etc and takes short trips. Will that engine last with once a year oil changes? So give me a test ( will take multiple years to perform) where the everyday driver puts on 100,000+ miles over 5 years and once a year changes and the engine is torn down and then looks great, the labs do not test the same as the real world!!!!!!!!!!!

I did once a year years ago with Amsoil when kids were in college and I did not see the car very often, some years it was 15,000 miles but it was not a severe climate and the UOA were fine. Not sure I would do that in VT or if I lived in Canada though.

real issue though is the manufacturers will not support once a year oil changes for warranty purposes so this has got to be aimed at the after warranty owners out there. Amsoil tried the once a year for like 30 years and finally realized that this marketing angle did not work in selling more oil so they dropped the advertising of the extended OCI. Interesting though, Amsoil is now less expensive than the new Mobil 1 if you get the preferred or dealer discount.
