Mobil 1 5w30, but it wasn't vanilla. Mobil 1 didn't have flavors back then. M1 was the top of the line, with no variants other than weight. It's been awhile since the marketing landscape looked like that.

I still have a bottle of QS in a clear bottle. I loved those bottles! If they sold it that way today, I'd probably buy it and run it.

One neat thing...It is a bottle of 10w30 and it sat undisturbed for a number of years. There was no settling or separating of any components. It looked the same when I picked it up, looked at it, and topped off a lawnmower as when it was new.
