Garryowen is on a distinguished road

My old man has been using Mobil 1 since before I was born (I was born in 79), and has had nothing but good results. I bought my 06, 5.7 with 16,500 miles on it. The dealer threw in a free oil change with my purchase, so I let them do it at 20,000. I then stated running Mobil 1 5w20 at 23,000 miles. The truck seams a lot happier, and I get a lot less "HEMI tick". My old man and I have always run Mobil 1 (except when I wasw young and broke, or when the truck/car leaked/burned as much oil as it did gas) with the best of results. There are a lot of great oils out there, but I would always recomend a synthetic oil no mater what brand, they are better in all aspects of lubercation.
