Default mobil 1 prices went up?

I went to walmart today to pickup some 5-30 mobil one and noticed that they upped the prices? it used to be 4.40/ quart but now its 5.90. They also raised the prices for the 5 quart jugs to 26 bucks or so.

Anyone know how much mobil 1 costs at costco now?


thanks.

They must have had to raise the price to offset all of those 'buy 3 get 3 free' coupons in that pep boys calender last year. Why do you think I bought so many calendars?

They were out of stock for all the jugs of mobil 1 except for the 10-30. I was thinking about using that since I figured it would be fine but eventually just bought 5 quarts of the 5-30 for about 30 bucks...

I checked the price tag label and the mobil 1 jugs were definitely more expensive than before.

I'll check out some other walmarts..

and about those calendars. Some dude on ebay is auctioning off a bunch. lol

is that u?

That's a good reason to switch to German Castrol Syntec 0W30 (only available at Autozone). A thick, shear stable 30 weight that won't have any problems going 6-7,500 miles in our cars (n/a, 2.0T, 2.5T, H6). You get your money's worth.

^^woooooo is that a synthetic oil? I remember reading good things about. Maybe I should give the german castrol a shot. Is the 0W30 the correct weight?

I'll go check it out. I need to rent the obd2 scanner anyways.

I have ran mobil 1 5-30 most of the 50k miles on my car. Would switching to another engine oil give me some funky effects?

going to run a search for the castrol now.

Nope not me, but Like TJRCS said, they expire 12/31 of this year so time to stock up.

As far as Castrol, It's not synthetic, but I think it's Castor oil based as opposed to petroleum based. << I'm pretty sure I read that on here somewhere, don't shoot me if I'm wrong.

I did some research on bobistheoilguy.

the 0w30 castrol (says made in germany on the back) is fully synthetic.

they also say the 5w40 m1 is good stuff.

My WalMart sells the 5w & 10w30 for 20.17 and my local Target has single quarts of same for 4.17 for single quarts. Go figure that one.

North American made Castrol is a hydrocracked Group III synthetic. Yes, there is a lot of controversy about that, but most synthetics available "off the shelf" are Group III. Having said that, if you use the proper viscosity it will probably work fine for most drivers.

German Castrol is a synthetic that contains ester basestocks (Group V). Motul also uses esters. Europe is not allowed to call an oil synthetic unless it is Group IV or higher.

Right! I don't use 5W40 since I drive only about 5 miles each way daily. A little too thick to warm up quick enough for my use.

In retrospect, I really should have purchased more of those. I only got like 5 or 6 and have just 1 left, or I would have been happy to stick one in the mail gratis. I hope they have the same calander this year, because they were only a dollar and they make 6 quarts = $15.
