For all of you who like me live in a place where all the Advance Auto Parts are former car quests (and therefore use a different POS system) the clearance has arrived! I stopped at two AAP's in Albuquerque today and they both had Mobil Super Syn for $1.15 a quart and HM for $1.05. Got myself a nice little hoard to last a year or so for the family's vehicles, around 30 quarts, but there was PLENTY left on the shelves. The jugs I bought were all dusty and there must have been a few hundred quarts left undisturbed at the two stores I visited with the guy commenting that there were unopened boxes of the stuff in the back.

Looks like AAP's will be closed thanksgiving day but anyone wanting to pick up a jug or two can stop by on Friday as they'll be open then!

I should also mention that at one store only about half of the weights had the price tags reflecting the discount but they all rang up as clearance. The other store hadn't changed the price tags yet but they did ring up as clearance as well. The guy at the second store refused to sell it to me saying it can't possibly be the right price but after I showed him the receipt from the last store and he asked a manager they somewhat unenthusiastically sold me the 8 quarts I wanted grin

Isn’t it amazing that some people don’t know what ‘clearance’ means. It means corporate wants it out of the stores and will take a loss of profit to get it out!

It’s not like the store manager sets the price. I’m sure he gets a bonus based on profit margin but what’s the difference if it moves today or over the course of weeks? Some people are short sighted.

When I bought the Super Synthetic, my then 100k in miles Colorado began it's first-trend ever of consumption that grew at an alarming rate. I finally drained that oil at only 3K and attributed the consumption to be Mobil-Exxon's version of a very cheap synthetic - one that doesn't warrant the Mobil-1 name.

Never again for me. My two new Korean vehicles will not be testing Super Synthetic.

It could not have been the "cheap synthetic" cleaned up gunky rings causing consumption.

I find it strange out of thousands of gallons of Mobil Super used and thousands of miles driven there are not widespread reports of consumption.


make the inside of your engine oil cap white.
don't use.

Sorry to hear that on your Colorado

Personally I have been using Mobil 5000 conventional in my fresh buy/flip cars(for several years when WM carried it) and no issues ?? on all my fresh car purchase, I use this to flush out old oil from previous owner, I run MS5K for 3000 miles to get whatever was in it out and drain and flush and refill with fresh Super Syn


Gonna try it in my 09 police vic this month and report back results. If bad results, gonna give away to friend and family or resell

I got like 12 different closeout oils (110 quarts) and mix without hesitation. Different brands and oil weights, its all good.

I've heard before that a few people said their oil consumption did increase with Mobil Super Syn oils.

Maybe nice attempt as a lower cost syn oils for customers not wanting to spend extra for Mobil 1 ?

I managed to clear out what little was left of a couple Dallas-area stores of the - the ones that GMguy84 hadn't yet gotten to... The MaxLife is ATF and unrelated - needed it for another project while I was in there. I only purchased the 10W30 as I have no current need for anything lighter in my fleet.
