when I walked over to the oil filters, they had lighter boxes and a very light blue filter inside... looked kinda cheap, and on the box it said 98% and 94% filtering instead of the old 98/99.... I wasn't too happy about that find, although it was just one number filter so far

Warren also molded the plastic bottles for the Supertech oil. If someone gets the chance, check the new blue colored bottles for "WPP" (Warren Performance Products) molded into the bottom.

And exactly how many different formulas of Mobil 1 10W-30 have existed? Gene K

Originally posted by liquidballbearing: It's true--the SuperTech oil is now supplied by Exxon/Mobil. I don't know all the details of the decision to go from Warren to Exxon/Mobil
