superflo is a good oil but why seek it out when M5000 is soooo cheap? i believe the M5000 is actually a step up.

thats like blowing off the $2 a qt QS sale at orielly's and seeking out $2.25 Formula shell

I agree with you there Electolover, just was wondering if it was just as good or decent in the additive department. Friend of mine bout some this afternoon and is going to use it for a 4 month oci, then we will cut his filter open.

If I can get it at advance I will or go to autozone.

Go to 'advanced seach', type 'Cavalier' into the subject, and 'Buffman' into the username section.

You will come up with 3-4 UOA's done on a 2001 Cavalier on Mobil 5000 10W-30 at 7-8k...they came out pretty good.

Really? You are serious ? Look up Xenophobia. With that logic we would never drive an English, Japanese, Korean, Spanish, French, Italian, Vietnamese, German, Austrian, Russian, Chinese cars etc...

You better start ripping out components of your car like the alternator, stereo etc....

And cellphones, TV's, clothes, toaster, PS3...

Anyone else care to add to the list?

It doesn't matter how good Superflo is. It has been replaced by Mobil Special in the XOM oil lineup.

7400 mile, 4+ year OCI on a neglected engine. This oil was noted on an old 2006 Jiffy Lube receipt as "Mobil 10W-30" (previous owner kept all repair receipts), so I'm assuming it was Mobil Clean/Exxon Superflo. TBN held up reasonably well and the oil didn't appear black or chunky when it was drained. I was expecting worse.

Hey stubbakatt, does wal mart carry this Mobil Special? I didnt get the case but friend in punxsy area has it or some of it still thats SM rated. Anyone know if Autozone or Advance Auto carries this oil? Would like to try it out. Any help locating this oil or where to get some would be great. May check wal mart out friday to look for myself also.


thank you in advance

It looks like Target is starting to carry the Mobil Special. That's the only place I know of yet. According to this thread, it's $2.99 a quart.

Not sure if Walmart plans to carry it, since they already have tons of other Mobil oils. The Superflo is still an excellent oil if you can still get the leftover SM stuff.

Yeah, dont know if wal mart; the way they are these days will carry it or no. Yeah I think my friend up in Punxsy still has bout two cases that are SM rated, and he said he would look for sure. He wants 20$ a case he did say to me. Thats decent in my book. I will check out Advance Auto and Autozone friday or saturday to see if I can get a case of superflo or if they still have it, as I hear the SN stuff is slowly coming to stores; but lot of stores may already have gone to the SN. When I was in Punxsutawney wal mart bout 3 weeks ago, that wal mart had all pennzoil yellow bottle in SN already.


adam vasbinder

thanks for that link Stubbakatt also and the advice
