Default Mobil oil

Hi guy,

I use to change the oil by myself using Mobil (the regular type 5W30),
bought it from Costco or Wal-Mart.

Recently when trying to replenish the stock, I had the surprise to find that
it totally disappeared off the market. What happened? Has it change the
name, or totally discontinued?

Thanks,

James

Mobil has re-labeled all of their oil lines, both regular and synthetic.
There are now 2 Mobil 1 synthetics, not even counting the synthetic blend
that is newly available, and of course their regular non-synthetic oils. The
brand names now include a recommended change interval (5000, 7500, etc) on
most of them.

Check out the Mobil website for details.

I don't know why Costco or Wal-Mart does not carry them, but Mobil has been
spending a lot more on advertising of the regular (non-synthetic) and
synthetic blend oils, so I am sure you can find it somewhere. Or maybe
Costco and Wal-Mart are simply out of stock on these items.
