TheRatsWon said: Same price at WalMart, just picked some up last weekend. Many blends and flavors. Your WalMart has a great price, it's $25.17 at all of mine. Also, some may be able to get this tax free from Amazon.
edit: indeed WalMart has rolled this back. fantastic price.
sinu said: Not sure if what is listed is true about shipping-
Price: $22.66 Usually ships within 1 to 2 months. It's nonsense. I had some rotors and an oil filter shipped Super Saver from Amazon that said it would take something like 4 to 8 weeks. I received them a week after ordering.
They also have the 5w-30 Synthetic at the same price right now. ManFromEast is right about not having to pay taxes in many states, plus those of us with the Amazon Chase Visa are getting a little bit sweeter deal! I went ahead and ordered one 10w-30 for my SUV for the warm months since it's burning/leaking a little, and then I ordered one of the 5w-30 for the winter. While I was at it, went ahead and bout the 2 pack of the Mobil 1 Extended Performance filters for $24.36. All told, works out to 2 oil changes with premium full synth and filter for under $35 apiece.
louamo said: I recently picked up a 6 quart box of Mobil 1 at Costco for about $25 net of the $10 off per coupon book. Costco has this every few months. I usually pick up a case or two when they have the sale. Recommend if you buy this for an older car, use a quart of Lucas synthetic oil stabilizer (Link) in the place of one quart to prevent engine gaskets from leaking or engine from using any oil. I do this with both my high mileage Jeep Liberty and higher mileage Volvo S70. Molecules with Mobil 1 are smaller than normal oil.
Mobil1 motor oil from WalMart is made specifically for WalMart. Look at the bottle and it will say so. There are many reports saying Wal-Mart mobil1 oil arent up to par with one you might buy from pepboys

Unless someone has done some sort of chemical analysis of it, I'd probably ignore such reports.

Mobil Oil Co. said: Question: Is the Mobil 1 Sold in Jugs at Wal-Mart the Same Quality as the Product in Quart Bottles Sold Elsewhere? I have a question about the 5-quart Mobil 1 jugs I buy at WalMart. Is the oil in the 5-quart Mobil 1 5W-30 jugs the exact same oil that is in the 1-quart containers sold elsewhere? I ask because I have heard that the WalMart gets a cheaper formulation made to their specs in order to allow them to sell for less and you do not get the same quality of oil when you buy it. When I compared the labeling on the 1-quart containers at Advance Auto Parts to the 5-quart jug I got at Wal-Mart, I noticed that the 1-quart container says ACEA A1/A5 B1/B5 and the 5-quart does not say ACEA at all. Both have the HTO-06 and are, I believe, both API SN and ILSAC GF-5. Frankly, I doubt that any company would risk their reputation by packaging a different product for a chain store under the same name but I thought I would ask. -- Paul Sceva, Plainfield, IL
Answer: You are right, the formulation and quality level of our motor oils are the same wherever the product name is the same, regardless of the package size in which it is sold. The difference in ACEA claims you are referring to sounds unfamiliar to us. Was it the exact same product in both cases?
I don't know what the warranty is for Mobil1 High Mileage, but ExxonMobil says it contains more than normal amounts of cleaning additive and more anti-wear additive, and it contains something to make the rubber seals swell up: http://www.mobiloil.com/USA-English/MotorOil/Oils/Mobil_1_High_M... . If your engine leaks even the slightest when running conventional oil, seriously consider Mobil1 High Mileage over other synthetics or the engine may drip a tablespoon a week, even if the synthetic has a higher viscosity than the conventional oil. This happened to me when I switched my Nissan Frontier from 5W-30 conventional to 100% synthetic 10W-30, but after I switched back to conventional, the drips stopped in just a few days.
"Mobil 1 Extended Performance has a unique formulation with boosted level of protection and performance. These formulations with the Advanced SuperSyn System contain 50 percent more SuperSyn, 36 percent more anti-wear additives, and 37 percent more cleaning agents than the current Mobil 1."

There are many reports saying Wal-Mart mobil1 oil arent up to par with one you might buy from pepboys I don't have any bottles to check, and WalMart.com doesn't show the back panel, but the fronts (conventional and synthetic) say, "Recycle used Oil & Filter at your local WalMart * Tire and Lube Express". WalMart has sold different versions of other national brand products than their competitors, like tires and luggage. bit engine oil is certified by the American Petroleum Institute (API), which lists these ExxonMobil motor oils:
API also does spot checks of samples taken from retail shelves, in case an oil company submits something better than what it actually sells.
I've seen only one major brand motor oil at WalMart that wasn't API certified, some Motorcraft with no API information at all on the bottle. I think the auto manager panicked at that, which probably meant it happened in a prior century, when WalMart still cared.

Most items specifically made for WalMart are sold under their private labels (such as George in men's clothing). Mobil is not making different oil just for WalMart.
