Is “High Mileage” Motor Oil Safe? Let’s find out! Mobil 1 vs Mobil 1 High Mileage; SuperTech vs STHM
When it comes to the decision-making process for buying motor oil, one might think that it would be pretty simple. Head to the store, find some sort of reputable brand, and call it a day. However, in reality, the exact inverse can be true. Purchasing oil is no longer a simple decision as oil manufacturers have come up with a ton of products to serve a variety of different vehicles or so it might seem.
One browse of the motor oil aisle will have consumers looking at everything from traditional oil to synthetics and a different product for just about every situation one can imagine. In this particular demonstration, the idea is to take a look at oil designed for high mileage applications and see if it is truly built differently than other oil offerings. Hypothetically, those behind such products could change a few small things and just slap a new label on such a bottle, charging consumers more without really offering that much more.
Fortunately, there are YouTube channels like Project Farm out there that are designed in the name of getting to the bottom of what’s helpful and what a bunch of bull. So, when push comes to shove, is this particular category of motor oil worth buying and something that could be helpful for your high mileage engine, or are the effects something that you won’t want to live with?
By following along with the video below, we get to join in with an exhaustive test that attempts to get to the bottom of this little dilemma. The crew over at Project Farm is well known for turning over every stone in the name of getting to the truth. With YouTube channels like this, we no longer have to wonder if what we’re seeing is amazing or if the marketing team is pitching us a bill of goods.
