Mobil 1 Extended Performance oil?

Hi all,
I just saw Mobil-1 5-30w Extended Performance oil at my local Autozone and Mobil's web site guarantees it for 15000 miles or 12 months.

I drive about 15k miles a year and if I only change oil once a year instead of 4 times a year that will be great.

Anybody is using it?
Thank you for any comments.

You may want to consider the Amsoil 0w-30, that is rated to last 35,000-mile or one-year, whichever comes first. I would also have a UOA just to make sure.

Post Amsoil here

I do alot of stop and go driving and at low speeds (50 max) M-F from home to work.
My driving is classified as "Severe Conditions".
I do not take chances withthe oil, I use ony the best oil in the world "Amsoil 0w30".
I just became a preffered customer and they give you a huge discount online. You should consider this oil before settleing for Mobil 1. it is worth the extra buck or two.

Thanks for the replies but I just want to get something that I can buy at my local stores instead of having to mail order.

Does Amsoil have a written warranty like this Mobil's for the extended oil change interval?

Thanks again.

AMSOIL is the Godfather of Synthetic Oils and the best IMHO.
Even if you choose against it this time and just buy mobil's, do your self a favor go to their web site and familiarize your self with their products. I don't mean to sound like a spoke person for them but they are really fast at mailing you the oil. I ordered two cases so far (I change the oil on my Honda CRV and 4runner).
And let me suggest to you that if you order, become a preffered customer, the savings are unreal vs non prefered customer.

Dax
BTW do a search here on AMSOIL and you'll read other people's opinions.

EDIT: It took 2 days for mine to arrive, they have a whare house in Richmond VA.

I get Amsoil from this guy. Last time I ordered on Tue, was at my door on Wed. He also discounts the oil. He even threw in a free hat.

I think the issue is more about time the oil is in the engine rather than miles and I wouldn't feel comfortable changing it after a year has passed. I go about 9k on mine which takes about 10 months and I like that interval.
