I do the MMO thing also if I think it's going to sit a while. I love that stuff!

Very happy with it Hydro. Now that summer temps are here I can say that hot idle pressure is almost 10psi better at 240* oil temp + overall oil temps are down about 10*

We just switched our TUSA Modified Lite race cars over to it at begining of this season. The engine builder called during scheduled freshen up to see what we were running as he had never seen the bearings in such good condition.

One thing though. This stuff stains like no oil I have ever used. Be very careful not to get it on Vinyl or clothing it does not come out!

Yes...it does leave a brown stain if spilled...

and...WOW your engine builder called to see what oil you used because he never saw bearings in such good condition??

Finally some proof that Mobil V-Twin is totally where it is at!
Any engine at or above 500 HP NEEDS it baby!

V-twin is THE one to beat....it is a rock solid product!

Bob's guys do not like Mobil's European 0W-40 much at all in automobiles from UAO tests it does not hold up real well. In a boat it would fair even worse I am afraid.

It's the only Mobil product that is not looking all that great. It has way too much viscosity enhancers in it and they shear down way too much under heat and high load.

Save it for your power mower or tractor or try to exchange it maybe use it in a leased vehicle or something if you get my drift.
