Good link.
To add to that, Mobil 1 isn't on the list now simply because they didn't keep up with the testing, (red tape and expense), according to the Mobil site, a couple years ago.
That may be in the works now. Anyone know for sure?

I wouldn't hesitate to use Mobil 1 on the Jeep. It's an oil preferred by Ferrari and the Pentastar was developed with help from Ferrari... I use Mobil 1 exclusively on my Porsche and I've gone 15k+ between oil changes in that and Blackstone results come back clean...

I will say right now that I've used M1 almost exclusively for my cars/trucks and domestic bikes for nearly 2 decades (the Mini Cooper S being one of the only exceptions).

We've used it on the 2012 GC (WK2) for the first 50k miles and have no complaints.

But for some reason, potential warranty complication maybe, I'm leaning towards going with Penzoil Platinum on the new JKU.

What I am currently using in the JK and I am impressed so far. That's the same as Shell Helix oil (sold only in Europe) and is the factory fill for a bunch of exotics to include Ferrari...
