Is anyone running Mobil Clean 5000 5w20? If so, what do you think of it (and have you done a UOA on it)? I ask because in my area, it's easier to find Clean 5000 than regular Mobil 1. I'm due for an oil change in a few hundred miles, and I currently have Mobil 1 5w20 in there.

Thanks!

I used Mobil 5000 & am in the process of getting it analyze.
Will report back to you once results come back.
While nothing earth shattering, the Mobil Clean line does use more sodium in the additives than other which could lead to some false readings by the untrained eye.

On BITOG, they've come back pretty much with that caveat all the time & since it's a dino, better alternatives are available including synthetics @ those price point which don't have so much sodium.

Btw, BITOG was the first site I am aware of that had reported that Mobil 1 is now not considered a pure synthetic like RedLine or Amsoil.
