Been all over town: 2 walmarts, o'rielys, autozone, etc and cannot find any of the approved Mobil One oils. All that are on the shelves are the standard, the 75,000 high mileage and the Super 5000. This is the first time I have gone looking for oil since I do not normally change it myself. Is there a shortage or does my market not sell enough to stock M and EU formulas? Anyone else having problems finding the approved formulas? Thanks

Typically a bit difficult to find especially at discounters. You may want to ask Exxon customer service and they will let you know who carries the EU formula in Atlanta.

I prefer Mobil One but if you get too frustrated in your search there are a lot of 229 certified oils now and I can also recommend Shell. And of course if you are spending too much time and money in your search there is always the MB dealer.

Thanks for the input. So everybody here that talks about picking it up at walmart, are they just using whatever Mobil One is on the shelf? Based on what I have read on here, I thought it would be a slam dunk to walk into walmart and get what I needed :td: thanks for the other options

My son has ordered it from local auto parts stores if it is not in stock. Walmart "sometimes" has it. Hard to get there, though. Although I did get 2 gallons a while back from Walmart for around $25 a gallon. Must have been just lucky.

Mobil [email protected] WalMart

Check WalMart. Com if the store doesn't have it in stock. You can order it and receive within a couple of days. Notify dept. manager and they will keep some on stock for you. Thank you for shopping my Walmart. R)

TODAY ONLY at Pep Boys: $5 per quart of Mobil 1 0W40 (individual quart bottles) limit 12 quarts per transaction, but no limit on how many transactions per individual.
I bought 3 cases (6 quarts per case); the person behind me bought 78 quarts or 13 cases! and he doesn't own a service shop, just 2 cars. I forgot to ask what type of vehicles.
