    I changed the oil in my car yesterday evening and today, even though I know it's all in my head, I swear it feels zippier and more eager to rev than it did yesterday. I'm a maintenance freak so it's not like the engine was all sludged up (Mobil 1 every 7500 miles). Just weird. :dontknow:

    What kind of car? There is a lot of confusion and worship of mobil1 that is unwarranted. Your particular engine may do better with conventional oil and a shorter interval. :dontknow:

    I observed noticable temperature drops in air cooled motors with Mobil 1 and ran it in my Buick GN (street/strip) for years (along with a few other high HP cars) with zero oil related issues so I'm a loyal customer based on my own history. Royal Purple and AmsOil are great too but the added expense, for my use, isn't justified. My use is 90% highway and I drive in a "spirited" fashion, the engine is in proper tune with no issues. With non-synthetic I'd probably change at 5k since it's a turbo motor (another reason for synthetic).

    '09 MINI JCW (1.6 liter/turbo)

    Good luck on your second weekend at the new gig. AVOID THE POP-OFF!!!!

    I'm dreading working that St. Patty's parade shitfest again this year. Just non-stop belligerent drunken douchebags. UGH......I can only wish for the weather to not cooperate unlike last year's unseasonable warmth. I can get many $50+/hr. bar gigs that night but "fuck that"... I'm heading home ASAP.
