To me, it is simply a marketing move.

They talked about how good the low temperature performance is of the new with SuperSyn. But the fact of matter is that the 10W30 with SuperSyn has a pour point that is 15 deg F higher (-49 deg F in SuperSyn vs. -65 deg F in Tri-Synthetic) than that of the Tri-Synthetic.

They also talked about how good the high temperature performance is of the new with SuperSyn. But the fact of matter is that the 10W30 with SuperSyn has a flash point that is 15 deg F lower (455 deg F in Supersyn vs. 470 deg F in Tri-Synthetic) than that of the Tri-Synthetic.

To meet the tough Eurp specs, the pour point of the 0W-30 and 0W-40 did not increase (suggesting the same amount of PAO in the base stock mix).

I am done with Mobil 1.

Anybody interested in buying four 5-qt jugs of Mobil 1 Tri-Synthetic 10W-30? Pick-up only please or I can deliver to Grand Rapids. The price is $17.88 plus 6% tax so it is $18.95 per jug (that is what I paid at Wal-Mart on 3/3/02.
