Is Mobil 1 better than Schaeffer's Full Synthetic 5W-30 Motor Oil? Let's find out!

  • Published on: 22 April 2019
  • Both Mobil 1 and Schaeffer's have been in business for over 100 years, but which brand makes the best SAE 5W-30 full synthetic motor oil? Let's find out! I purchased Mobil 1 and Schaeffer's Synthetic oils using my own money. I am not sponsored by Schaeffer's or Mobil 1 or by any product manufacturer. 100% of Project Farm videos are ideas that come from those leaving comments. So, thank you very much for requesting this video! In the previous episodes, Amsoil won over Royal Purple, Amazon won over Liqui Moli, and Red Line won over Super Tech. The brands that won will advance to next round in the oil championship series.

    The testing methods outlined in this video are my own and not performed using expensive oil lab testing equipment or following the ASTM, SAE or API testing standards. The three tests outlined in the video include tests for viscosity at varying temperatures, film strength, and evaporative testing. In my opinion, the testing approaches used in this video provide consumers with valuable information on choosing the right motor oil for their specific application. Hope you enjoy the video and thank you very much for supporting the channel by watching the commercials and through Patreon support.

    Your video is worthless. Some of your tests give an appearance of having scientific value, but in actuality, they’re severely flawed. Your video doesn’t show if one oil is any better than another.

    I never got to do my great oil experiment because: I was going to use a product called SMB 10W-30 @ $1a pint from the local dollar store in my 2001 4cyl Toyota Camry Solara w/135K miles. Before I could try it, they started selling a new brand. I was able to verify the source for SMB. Their new brand is also stated as 10W-30 SN but I couldn't verify the source for it, so I had to drop out.The 2001 Toyota Camry Solara is gone but with the insurance settlement (it was the other guy) I bought a 1996 Nissan Sentra GXE w/141K real cheap. It also can use 10W-30, and I would try SMB if it was still available.People don't understand us. We buy the cars and trucks they throw away, clean a few things, get a few parts from the self-service wrecking yard and drive them another 150,000 miles. We always fix the mechanical before we start in on the cosmetic. My Sentra needed drive axles. I got rebuilts from discontinued lines at two different parts stores $55 for both. Fixed the brake lights with a 30 cent nylon bolt. Got a heater control box with cables from the self-service wrecking yard for $15. So it goes.

    Next time you go flying on holiday, look at the brand of turbine oil thats on the side of the truck at the airport. Then ask yourself how much a turbine engine costs in $millions, then how important having the best oil might me due to safety and cost reasons. Then report back.

    Synthetic oil has always been reputed to make head gaskets and other gaskets leak. I wonder if you could test whether this is true or not as compared with conventional motor oil. Also, is a higher viscosity oil less likely to cause gaskets to leak still than a lower viscosity oil?

    Check your facts. Mobil 1 has been selling oil since the early seventies. I bought some of their first oil developed and sold by them. Before Mobil 1 was Amsoil. It was also available in the early seventies but before Mobil 1. It was invented by an Air Force jet pilot who wondered if they use synthetic oil on my jet, why can't we make some synthetic for a passenger car?

    I hope you have good air evacuation when cooking the oil. The vapors coming off of those flasks looks like they could be pretty bad.

    Do a video on best dish liquid. We use dish liquid to clean sprayers equipment and much more. I think this would be very interesting

    I love all the continuing oil test, but would be super interesting to see how a "bio based oil" does against these good synthetics. LIke the Bio-SynXtra etc.

    Maybe the Shaeffer's company was making beer back in 1839 but I doubt it was making motor oil, as the automobile wasn't invented until around 1885. I've had Shaeffer's beer before some friend of mine was broke and couldn't afford anything else and no it wasn't very good beer lol
