Did you read the OP?


Yes, and even the title where OP is asking if there is a shortage. There’s not. Why hunt for it when you can have it delivered? Why waste time theorizing about stock levels? Who on this forum knows or will share what Walmart’s decision is to carry what oil at what store based on sales amounts? Or what Mobil’s plans are for AP going forward. Not certain what you are implying what I missed, but thanks for the value added post.


Because he said he ordered it right in the post. Then you proceeded to imply that he should just order it.

Not too many people are willing to pay the boutique price for Mobil 1 AP. The AP jugs in my Walmart are collecting dust.

No its called the price of synthetic oil. $10-15 a litre

Not the Fake synthetic were are usually snake oil sold

Your vanilla M1 5w30 is semi-syn AT BEST and maybe not even that.

I can't speak to the add pack, but according to the MSDS's, I like the base oil composition of M1 0w-20 EP better than 0w-20 AP, My preference would be EP even though I have both at my local walmarts.

Same here. Stuff is collecting dust in my local Walmart's and I doubt there is a big rush for them to get replacement orders of the stuff in when they do sell out.

In my local Wally’s the AP has been relegated to the top shelf which is usually a bad sign.

EP will be a great alternative.

Can you elaborate? The speculation I have seen is that both EP and AP were suspected of having the same high percentage of PAO in their base oil.

AP/EP are both PAO based.

Meaning that instead of hunting for something in 3 Walmarts, OP should have just order(ed) it and have it at his door, before even bothering to step foot in the store #1 let alone 3. All that does is burn time and fuel. Why schlep if you can have it delivered.

I agree, M1 AP is $35.84 for a 5 quart jug on Walmart.com and you get free 2 day shipping with orders over $35. No need to hunt this stuff down in random stores.

I see AP at every Walmart. IMO it’s the most advanced long drain oil on the market. You get what you pay for.
