    Types of Mobil 1 oil for 3.5 EB

    Looking to switch from Amsoil to Mobil 1 but it seems like there are many different types of Mobil 1.
    I went on Mobil 1's website and they currently do not have recommended oil for a 2019 F150 3.5 Ecoboost.
    I am thinking they just didn't update it for the near year.

    Mobil 1 Annual Protection
    Mobil 1 Advanced Full Synethetic
    Mobil 1 Extended Performance High Milage
    Mobil 1 Extended Performance

    After looking at the Mobil 1 website, it seems the Annual Protection has the best ratings and properties.

    With Mobil 1 Advanced being the worst. Any feedback?

    I thought the one with the Green "2" on it was supposed to be the one we Ecoboosters prefer? (If choosing Mobil 1)

    Is it also weird that AutoZone will sell Mobil 1 EP for $45.99 and Walmart has it for $25.77?

    As long as it has the SN+ cert you are good. Also the dexos 1 Gen 2 and if you want to go as far as ford spec's you can go to the ford B1 spec.
    I just switched to Castrol Edge 5w-30 since it is a little thicker. Not as thick as original M1. But it is a preference not to use it for me.

    I saw your posts on BITOG and had the same questions. That is what led me to castrol. Although QSUD is a good choice as well.

    I think the 2 is what I highlighted below.
    Not sure where I heard this recommendation

    That is the dexos Gen 2 cert for GM DI applications. I think it has lower sulfated ash to help with their timing chains. The more important is the SN+ but getting both is still really good.

    Thanks.

    The whole oil debate would just make my head hurt, so I just err on the side of changing the oil too often.

    I don't that is a 2, it just a symbol with a 1 on the bottom.
    A manufacturer's oil specification is a unique blend that an automaker creates and mandates for use in its vehicles. GM's new oil product, Dexos, consolidates its five prior recommended oil specifications into two blends: Dexos1 for gasoline-powered vehicles and Dexos2 for diesels

    Never said it was. But I knew what he was talking about.
