Synthetic Motor Oils
I've been using Mobil One for about 20 years. My favorite shop talked me into using Total synthetic oil. Anyone have any experience with it? (I'm betting Sleeprider has heard of it.)

I run Total Quartz 9000 0W-20 in my SUV's. I have a GMC Envoy with 235,700 miles. I run off road though through the snow in the winter and mountains in the summer.

Does not burn any significant amount of oil. Temperature range here is 105F to -27F.

I also have a 2015 Honda Pilot running this oil which has a sensor for the oil change which came on @ 15,000 miles

I think Mobile one is a great oil also.

RE: Synthetic Motor Oils
Just started using Mobile One full synthetic in our cars, mower, & slow-blower last year. I change my own oil & filters, so I made sure I drained out all the old oil first. A lot of shops don't drain it long enough for my taste.

Not much history with Mobile One, but I've read a lot of good things about it.

RE: Synthetic Motor Oils
You might have mis-read my OP, SuperSleeper. Total (Toe-tahl, emphasis on 2nd syllable) is a brand name for synthetic oil; and I just started using it after having used Mobil One for 2 decades.

I figured the 2 wheeler crowd would know about Total.

I like the synthetics because the do not break-down to lesser weight when hot.
Conventional oil may be up to 1/3 viscosity agents to make them multi-weight.
Synthetics oil up quickly in cold weather.

Ah, I was thinking you meant "total" synthetic as in "fully" synthetic (as opposed to a synthetic blend which is only part synthetic).

Didn't know there was a brand name of "Total".

Oops

RE: Synthetic Motor Oils
I haven't tried Total, partially because it isn't offered locally that I have found, and the only formulation suitable for wet clutch motorcycles is the 10-60 racing formula which is pretty pricey. The 2-wheel crowd is very fond of Shell Rotella T6 5W-40 which is intended for diesel engines. There is a Mobile One formula suitable for motorcycle engines, but most are energy-conserving and we don't want those additives. Lots of motorcycle synthetic oil in the 20W-50 weight are used by the V-twin crowd, but is also suitable for high performance in-line 4.

For the cars, I use Mobile One 0-20 or 5-20, and Valvoline High Mileage 5-30 in the older car. Both are synthetic or blends. Motor oil is not the most thrilling topic. Keep it properly filled, and change it at reasonable intervals, and the engine is not likely to be the reason you trade or scrap the car.

You need to get out more. Smile Total is one of the "Big Oil" corporations, about the same size as Chevron and substantially larger than Philips 66, when measured by revenue.

Maybe it's big in your neck of the woods, but I don't remember seeing that particular brand of motor oil around here, at least not on the consumer-level market. Perhaps they sell it under different branding here, but it's not available under the "Total" brand name through any of our popular auto stores here in the U.S. (like Napa, AutoZone, Advance Auto Parts, or O'Reilly Auto, and I couldn't even find it on WalMart's website either). Dont-know

So maybe they just don't market much to the U.S. consumer market, which would explain why I haven't heard of them.
