If you watch racing on TV, you will see many Mobil 1 decals on race cars and driver attire. I have personally never seen a race car (or drivers suit, hat, etc.) for a major venue that had a Amsoil decal. According to the Amsoil website, they do sponsor vehicles for Supercross (motorcycles), Snowcros (snowmobiles), powerboats, Monster Trucks, and a few other minor venues. All of the users of Amsoil in these venues are sponsored (paid) by Amsoil. No NASCAR, Indy Car (CART or IRC), or Formula 1 race cars use Amsoil to my knowledge. Even the Space Shuttle uses Mobil 1. While there are other companies that make good synthetics, not all synthetics are of equal quality. Check out this article about Castrol Syntec. http://www.caranddriver.com/xp/Caranddriver/columns/2000/November/200011_col umns_bedard.xml Yes, I use Mobil 1. I have found it to be excellent and reasonably priced. There may be other synthetics just as good as Mobil 1, but I have never seen any other full synthetic which costs more than a few cents less than Mobil 1 (and most cost more), so why take a chance with another brand. Mobil 1 is also available at almost every oil change business, and available at more retail stores than other brands (including Wal-Mart where I just bought a 5 quart container of Mobil 1 for $17.88).
