[BiturboS4] New Mobil 1 ?

I went for the Amsoil fully synthetic at 10,000 mi based on what appears
to be a superior ASTM wear ball test result when compared to Mobil 1
fully synthetic.  I don't know about possible new Mobil 1 blends, but
can't imagine they will not continue to sell fully synthetic.  I would
look for that verbage (along with a $4.00 per quart or higher price) on
the container.

I think that Mobil 1 label has been expanded by Mobil 1 to cover both
synthetic and dino/synthetic blends. Just read what you buy.
