and its been changed with the new label jugs. I forget the new number but the old one was 5888 and has been that for quite some time
Did anyone call to confirm that change to formulation was made starting with new label exactly? Perhaphs its one of those changes that happens gradually and does not necessarily happen with a new label.

Its very possible that formulation was changed but they first wanted to use all the old labels, and then marketing told them to update the label. Its a possibility too

That is very possible to but im sure they would never tell anyone they used up the old labels

Last week I ordered three jugs from Walmart and they showed up today. They are old label and stamped 5888. I honestly thought I would receive the new triple action oil, but to my surprise I did not.

Pretty sure they are clearing out old stock all over North America right now.

I used to think PAO was everything. Time here at BITOG has provided an education and I now know that the total formulation, not necessarily how much PAO is in the base oil, and the specifications/approvals the oil meets are far more important than whether it's PAO, GTL, or current Group III base.
So for the price, Mobil 1 is still a good value.
Yeah, I agree, even AMSOIL used to have a PAO logo and they got away from it. Technology has changed over the years. The proof is in the testing and oil analysis.
