Ran out of headline room. Back in the late 90s every store had sae30 and 40 available in every brand they carried.

Today it seems like I only see napa,valvoline,castrol and wpp straight weights.

Wondering if some oil Co's have stopped making it?

Chevron Havoline, Castrol, Quaker State, Valvoline Pennzoil all make straight 30 grade. Beyond that I am not all too sure Exxon Mobil does.

Think Mobil only makes it where a country or industrial sector demands

Probably! Why would they want to miss out on this market?

Iíve seen SAE 30, 40, and 50 at AAP. Most other stores just have 30.

Hmm I bet M1 HM 10w-30 is very similar then. HTHS of 3.5

Some do, but relegate them to HDEOs, rather than having a nominal SAE 30 SN PCMO and an SAE 30 HDEO. Imperial Oil and Petro-Canada seem to do that here. Conversely, Castrol makes sure ordinary monogrades (and even non-detergent monogrades) are readily available on the shelves.

Royal Purple monogrades, shown in the thread, are also available here.

They're a small blender, bit of a presence here.

I've never given monogrades a thought, but down in these parts, a straight 30 would make sense.
