Mobil 1 0W-40 in a 2004 WRX

Thought of doing it.  I heard something about the possibility that
Mobil has gone to different base lubes in their North American
offerings, save their 0W-40.  I also tend to go a bit longer than
severe intervals along with most short trip driving in cold temps.

I live in the San Francisco Bay Area, although I may go into the
mountains.  I don’t know if this interval is going to extend into the
winter months when I might visit Lake Tahoe or Yosemite.

I figure this should be OK.  I hear Subaru uses 5W-40 oils in the UK
for the same engines.

    Also take a look at the Synth Rotella in 5-40.

    You might like reading the forums at http://www.bobistheoilguy.com , And see if
    there are pertinent used oil analyses (UOA) on the oils your interestd
    in – maybe even in shaky town!

    (in spite it is heavy duty diesel engine) I use it in both 2.5 Outback
    and Impreza (non turbo) and my Yamaha FZ-1. Changed it like 10 times
    (all together) every 3K miles in bike and 5K miles in cars.
