Mobil 1 Oil

I have a question concerning Mobil 1 oil. I was in the store getting some stuff for my Jeep when I walked down the oil aisle and noticed the different Mobil 1 oils lined up. I saw that like most other brands there is one specifically made for vehicles over 75k. It got me thinking on is there really a difference between that bottle and the regular bottle of Mobil 1 Synthentic oil?? I would just think that there couldn't be much of a difference between the two, I mean what could they do to the bottle for vehicles over 75k that they wouldn't do to the regular selections other than the seal conditioner that they add? Should one actually not think about it and just automatically grab the "over 75k" bottle instead of the other selections if their vehicle is over 75k? Just something I have been pondering over and not wanting to start an oil brand war here, just curious about the real difference between the selections that Mobil 1 offers and if there is any big notice with picking between them.

I only use dino oil and change it and the filter every 3K. All my previous vehicles ran over 200k and never had a problem. Not a fan of keeping all the dirt in my oil any longer contrary to what they claim.

10w-30 or 5w-30 depending on your temperature and other factors, I run 5-30, 10w and 5w is the same viscosity once your engine warms up
