Mobil 1?

Thanks Scott for correcting me on the names (sorry Larry), and topic. But when you say Mercedes has been shipping their cars with Mobil 1, well, that oil hasnt been around for 15 years has it?..(if that is synthetic your speaking of). Also, I gather from your response that it is perfectly ok to switch from a multigrade oil to a synthetic , no matter how many miles have been put on the engine?.or what oil has been used previously? even if it is gas or diesel?
I have heard that synthetics will clean deposits on an engine and maybe cause leaks after they have removed soot and such. I have just heard this and have no experience, maybe someone else can discuss this further. Lets have everyone respond, thanks I will use whatever oil everyone here recommends (majority), so please lets have some feedback.!
