Have not seen that before but haven't been running much Mobil 1.  There is a thread on Bob is the Oil Guy https://bobistheoilguy.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/4282675/New_Mobil_oil....M1_Annual_Pro which discusses it.  Seems to be a long life oil but nothing new about Mobil 1 have an annual oil change interval.  I try and change the oil before the manufactures recommended oil change mileage and if not up to that point then within a year.  Plan for the TC is to go with Ford's recommendation.  I've thought about changing the oil before 1,000 miles to get rid of break in particles.  I like the oil monitor concept.  have been using it on the Volt and it's nice.  With 5 cars, a motorcycle and two scooters it's hard to keep up with when what was changed.

I'm using Castrol Edge Extended Performance  -  "Protection for up to 15,000 miles".  I'm changing it every year or 10,000 miles, whichever comes first


I used to be a believer in Mobil products, but after Exxon bought them out, I haven't used anything they make.  After half a dozen trips to Alaska, the way Exxon went about dealing with their ecological disaster up there still burns me up  -  Namely, they paid millions to huge teams of lawyers to get out of cleaning up the mess they made and making a fair settlement with the thousands of Alaskans for the damages the spill caused to their lives and careers.  BP on the other hand did the opposite.  Thousands of miles of shoreline were cleaned foot by foot and fishermen and others who were negatively impacted were made whole


I vote with my pocketbook and have no use for Exxon or Mobil  -  There are many more reputable companies competing for my dollar
