I have heard others complain about consumption problems with mobil 1 as stated above too. I used mobil 1 in my last car which was a 2000 2.5rs coupe with no problems but i guess its case by case. I guess my perception of rotella (honestly for no reason) was that it was a lower grade oil but i never really gave it a chance either so ill try it out. Im going from non syn to full syn so i hope i dont run into any problems. Only 19k on the car thoughs o i dont anticipate any. Thanks for the info
That's all marketing though. UOA shows that Subaru Boxers like to chew up and drink Mobil 1 but Shell Rotella T6 holds up well.
