As far as I know, Mobil 1 has always been 100% synthetic oil. You may be
getting confused with Amoco which makes a partially synthetic oil, also
sold by Kmart and probably on the same shelf as the Mobil 1. In my opinion,
there is no point in using a partial synthetic oil. I think its a marketing
gimmick by Amoco to try to capture part of the synthetic oil market by
selling it at a reduced price.
