I was shopping at my local Wal-Mart last night, and stumbled upon a price drop on Mobil 1, 5 Qt. jugs, various weights. Regularly $26.00, Now $22.00. Most, but not all viscosities were marked on the shelf with the lower price. I bought 2 jugs of 10W30. I might go back to see if 5W30 is on sale for my other car. I didn't see any expiration date for the lower price.<p>Just wanted to let everyone know.<p>

Re: Wal-Mart drops price on Mobil 1 (MAC1LSR)

Yup. Been like that for a few weeks now. And Castrol Edge was marked down from $32 to $26, so I just went for the Edge instead of the Mob 1.

How does Castrol Edge compare with Mob1 or Amsoil? I assume CE is a ful synthetic as well.

Re: Wal-Mart drops price on Mobil 1 (solyvive)

According to the latest marketing hype, the Castrol Edge has 8x better wear protection over Mob 1, and I'm hearing good stuff about it from other forums here and there. It even claims an oil change interval of 15,000 miles <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/redface.gif" BORDER="0">

If they can help me save a few bucks here and there, I'm happy. If they employ children in sweatshops in China - I never will have anything to do with those kids, so why bother about it? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0">
