Mobil has oil rigs.
Shell only has refineries so they buy oil from other oil companies and do what they do.

Thanks Joe.
Lots of controversy online about Rotella being a true synthetic.

I use either Mobile 1 or Valvoline Vtwin synthetic and they both work well. I used conventional one time and it didn't last very long, so the extra $ for synthetic, in my opinion it worth it. I change oil and my final gear oil every 3000 miles though, so it could just be that fact.

Ok..I was NOT home-schooled, but that is neither hear nor their.

I was using Orville Redenbacker butter flavored oil for my popcorn but have since quit eating popcorn.

Thought I had an abscess tooth back in the 90's. My face was about to explode. Went to the dentist and found out it was a shell from a popcorn seed that had gotten between the gum and the tooth. I've had maybe 5 handfuls of popcorn since then.

Popcorn just isn't as fun since I was a kid living at home.
On Saturday movie night, Mom used to fill the frying pan with popcorn.
All us kids would gather in the kitchen before the movie.
Mom would turn on the burner and pop the corn without a lid.
We had to scramble to gather all the popcorn off the floor into our bowls.

When I was kid, JiffyPop was awesome, but it was expensive, so we didn't get it very often.
Then some evil scumbag invented the hot air popper. So dry, it was like eating packing peanuts.
Then some magician invented the microwavable bag.
Then we saw the number one eye injury come from people sticking their face into the bag as soon as they opened it.
Then someone said that the ingredients in the butter in the bag causes cancer and we are all going to die.
Now eggs are good for you.

Rotella is great for high compression engines like diesel. But for motorcycles with shared bath transmissions, it does not hold up well to the mechanical shearing when ground between the teeth of the gears. The 5w40 breaks down very quickly and can harm your engine if you run it for too long.

Whoa there hoss! How about a trigger warning before you go mentioning air poppers. I'm still suffering from PTSD from trying to eat that stuff.
