As predicted, Looks like the "Fail" of Mobil Full Syn is starting hit ???


Was trying to scoop up leftover clearance oil at autozone in Dallas area and saw this on the oil racks


5 qts (Jug or singles) of Mobil Full Synthetic + STP 10K mile extended filter $25.99

Expires April 6

If qualifies for Mobil Spring rebate starting Apr 1 +1 point for AZ rewards, it comes out to be a pretty good deal for those on a budget or those changing oil on a winter beater thumbsup

Ya first saw it in January, I think that "Dollar store 7th grade art project" of a generic label is what nixed it for them Coffee2

I liek the vintage label. Looks pro grade.

This is not M1 its really Mobil super synthetic ?

School me
.

No deal .a 19 dollar oil and a 5 dollar filter = 24 bucks

So 2 bucks overpriced still smile

Plus Valvoline Advanced is you best 5w30 out there now by far

Umm yeah.... the 90's called. They want their labels back.

Not sure why oil companies (ALL of them, not just Mobil) don't just do this: offer only one "flavor" of conventional/blend, and one of synthetic of each weight grade. Put all the HM or whatever stuff they're going to add in both formulas, and do whatever is needed to make them fit all the specs (or even better yet, get all the engine manufacturers on board and get back to a universal standard instead of all these manufacturer specific oils- get API and ACEA on the same page and harmonize the worldwide engine oil standards!). If necessary, jack the price up a buck or three to cover getting all the goodies, and cut down on all this excessive production and oil that just languishes on shelves. Here's an example, since I'm a yellow bottle guy:

Pennzoil would have the copper jug Pennzoil (since it's got the HM goodies) and be the syn blend since it seems most oils need some syn to meet dexos specs, and PUPHM with all the various goodies we've seen (high boron from RGT, high moly, etc). Yellow, PU, PUHM, Euro, etc would all go away. Price them $8-10 apart for a 5qt jug (conv to syn), and then all the other "flavors" go away. Retail is dying anyways, and so only having two different spots on shelves would allow new stores to be built smaller, since you don't need 75 different fronts to capture all the oil brands, levels, and weights. Wouldn't it be glorious to know that any jug you buy has all the "best" additives from that manufacturer, and all you have to decide is which oil brand you prefer? No more going "I love all that boron, but I wish it had more moly!". Maybe it's just me, but I think all of the split paths of oil marketing is detrimental not only to the consumer, but also adds alot of unneeded complexity and cost for oil manufacturers.


De omnibus dubitandum.

With base oil interchange you never know what you are gettiing batch to batch anyhow.

It like Wine vintage.and well stored bottles.

Most all M1 is semi synthetic so what does it all mean?

DP

Maybe not Dexos 1 gen 2 and Modern engine compatible?

Much more importanat in MY world, I see they have Rotella T4 10w30 triple protect in jugs. With spring coming here is your Mower oil and your Snowthrower OCI oil.

here is what Mobil says about Mobil Synthetic - I dont see Dexos 1 gen 2 license.


Mobil Full Synthetic 5W-30 motor oil is formulated for vehicles upgrading from conventional oil or synthetic blend, or requiring full synthetic motor oil
Provides guaranteed protection that's 1.5X longer than our conventional and synthetic blend oils, up to 7,500 miles between oil changes*
Helps to prevent sludge and deposit formation, to help reduce engine wear, and has balanced additive system formulation
Provides excellent resistance to oil breakdown, for proven long-lasting protection, and maintains oil viscosity at high operating temperatures
Recommended for all types of gasoline-powered vehicles, including those with turbo charged engines, and meets API SN Plus resource-conserving

I think this might eventually replace Mobil 5000 and end the era of syn-blend oils for Exxon-Mobil...

What do you mean by "fall". That they've put it on sale like they periodically do every other oil?

In any case, a $5 rebate also applies if bought after tomorrow...

Actually if you are not using the heavy DP for 10K miles of M1 or EP this may be good for those

5K-7K OCI holdovers !

Never know how bad it is in YOUR engine till you try it,

I thought that oil would flop. At $2 or less a quart combined with a rebate I might grab some for OPE. wink

I agree, it is just one of their weekly circular sales bundles.
They do it with all their oils. shrug

It is an OK deal with the filter and rebate.
It would be $23.13 for me with tax minus the $5 rebate.
For comparison, I could go to Walmart right now and get a jug of Supertech Synthetic for $14.88 and a ToughGuard for $6.82 (both what I consider equal comparisons of this deal) for $23.49 out the door.

Mobil Full Synthetic is a similar batch to the former Mobil Super Synthetic
The STP XL is their Premium oil filter. Probably normally sells for around $8.99
The blue box STP oil filter is their inexpensive, jobber filter.
