Just to clarify. I’m not confused if Mobil 1 is fully synthetic. My question is if anyone has used the brand Redline. They have full synthetic motor oil and I’m curious if anyones used it.

I use all different name brands of synthetic oil. different companys use different wear additives, I want them all. with the exception of mobile 1.I dont use it. I haven't used redline or the purple stuff. Ive never had a oil related issue with my vehicles.

i use the Walmart full synthetic, or other brands if they are cheaper... i have never had an oil problem in anything since i've started using synthetic in everything.... why pay more for just a 'name'...

And that would be where my confusion started. I though you were asking about what oil to use in your Sky Redline!!!!

I use Redline oil for tranny and diff purposes. Mainly because they are the few suppliers that produce quality synthetic GL4 oils plus easy to find at auto part stores. But I never tried Redline engine oil because they are quite expensive and there are vast alternatives. Besides their 1l bottles aren't as convenient as the 4-5l jugs when it comes to storing used oil. :)
Engine oil discussion can turn into holy wars. Just check out the BITOG for instance.
