    Hi guys I just bought a 5 qtr jug mobil 1 full synthetic from wally world for $24.00 bucks pretty good price I think. My question is any difference from the regular qrts they sell those $ 6.50 a pop. I bought the 5qtr jug better deal. What do you all think.

    5w30 is correct.

    The type of Mobil1 used really doesnt matter. The additives between the "advanced" "high performance" "high mileage" and "eco-whatever-the-fuck" are really minimal.

    The only difference is when your buying a larger quanity the price is usually better like you found out. Be aware that some automotive stores sell the large jugs for around $25, but if you look carefully the jugs are only 4 quarts...not five. From what I've found Wally World is the best deal around.

    True most of the time.....but sometimes you dont get what you pay for.

    But I have heard a lot of good reports about Mobil1. Otherwise I for one, wouldn't use it.
