Arrow Synthetic oil

I have a 500E with 66k, do you advise Mobil One or stay with organic oils. Thanks

The consensus seems to be go ahead and begin using the Mobil1. There is no downside other than a little more expensive. The benefits have been hashed over here again and again.

By the way, strictly speaking synthetic oil is organic. Chemistry holds that compounds containing carbon are organic. Synthetic oils are compounds made on purpose as opposed to compounds seperated for the mix of chemicals that make up petroleum.

Thanks Tom. It has been twenty-five years since my last organic chem course at college. As you can tell I was not the brightest. Thanks and have a good day.
