Was in my local BJ's. They had real M1 and right next to it, the Mobil Super Synthetic. The Mobil Super is 5 bucks cheaper a six pack. So, does the Mobil Super lack many of the qualities that makes M1 an outstanding oil? Gotta be a reason why it's significantly less bucks. Thank, gents.

I never understood why Mobil debuted this oil. It was an unneeded spot they filled for some reason.

So they could sell full syn oil at Autozone without price matching Walmart (or name any two stores).

It's XOM's lower tier synthetic, the same class as QSUD, Havoline, Magnatec, and the house brands. Mobil Super Synthetic is also synthetic TGMO

Agreed; this oil at it's price point has no place in the Mobil line up. It is not that great of an oil anyway...

In my opinion, Mobil operates like Tide where they just creates tons of products to try to maximize shelf space. Which is honestly a really good and effective plan, because I mean look at us, we’re here talking about it and many people probably stand there for ten seconds trying to decide which one to buy and then choose one or the other but either way Mobil wins.

The only Mobil super I've seen nowadays is the stuff that resembles the old Mobil clean 5000. I thought this was a Dino. I do recall Mobil having a bottle advertising 7500 miles maybe that's the Mobil super I remember and thought that stuff was a SYN-blend. I'm dating back 10 or so years ago.

MSS replaced the syn-blend 7500....I consider it Mobil's new 7500 mile oil.
The Mobil hierarchy is Mobil dino - a 5K oil, Mobil SS- a 7.5K oil, Mobil1- a 10K oil, Mobil1 EP- a 15K oil, Mobil1 AP- a 20K mile oil. (IMO)

PS: I don't consider MSS to be on par with QSUD....maybe I'm wrong.

I heard Mobil SS being used more at dealerships and private mechanic shops. Hope this isn't true and they're selling full Mobil 1 priced oil changes.

Except for similar pricing and approvals, im not certain we make this claim as fact? The last VOA i read showed TGMO with much greater VII and Moly numbers.

M1 pushed synthetics and should have stayed with just M1 and Mobil conventional IMHO

Don't forget Mobil Special, that slots below their 5000 mile Mobil Super.
