I have 12 vehicles to keep up. (Pest Control Company).
Best thing I have done is Molybond for about 3-6 oil changes, then Mobil 1 for 3-6 changes. Repeat. I have put the molybond in many different vehicles, ranging from 1 ton Ford, 3/4 ton, 1/2 ton, small trucks, GEO tracker Airstream motor home, 79 450 SL, Dodge, to name a few. Before the 5th tank of gas I have had to reduce the idle on every vehicle.
Friend of mine runs the Mobil bulk plant ,and can use any oil he wants. He uses Mobil 1 in every vehicle including the 18 wheel transport trucks. He changes the oil every 7500 miles. The Geo my dad drives was previously owned by a chemical engenier for Mobil, the man knows his oil and swears by Mobil 1.
As I understand it molibdinum hardens metal when heated. Mobil 1 does not burn but will break down at 795 degrees F. You have no plug wires at that temp.
