I use full syntetic oil in my cars, no one is turbo.
I do not buy anything as expensive as Mobile one.
My Volvos are:
140 -71, 480 000 km, not in use
740 -85, 480 000 km, full synt since new
V70 -00, 190 000 km.
One reason full synt here in Sweden is the winter, big difference when
temperture goes down to -25 C.
