There has been some rumours floating around that Mobil 1, 15w50 ( red top ) has been discontinued. It is certainly not as easy to find in my area. Any one know the scoop on this ???

The regular M1 15w-50 doesn't appear on their website either. Good riddance! It'll make more shelf space for the 5w-20.

Check you local Target. 3 I have been to have 15w-50 EP for the same price as regular M1 ($4.89?).

15w50 red top was on clearance here last month for 1.90 off a quart or 5 quart jug for 17.87. they have since moved in a ton of 5w20 and the mobil clean series. they seem to be really pushing the 5,000 7,500 and 15,000 oils.

I guess I was lucky. I was at a local Target store and they had the EP 15w50 for $3.69, the same price the red cap sold for. I bought every one they had (18qts,). I think this GC affliction is contagious. My garage cabinets are overflowing with oil. New cabinets are on the way.

i got even a better deal today.. target store. 6 qts of M1 15W-50 left: 3 were regular super syn; 3 were EP. Price was marked down to $4.89. But marked down again on Clearance to $3.42! Too bad they only had 6 available. I mix it with M1 0w-40 for my supercharged '99 M3 [Smile]

There's always Valvoline Synpower 20w50, which MSDS (and only the 20w50) indicates about 70 percent PAO base. Usually around $4.60, but sometimes on sale for $4.

There's no way Mobil is killing off the 15W50 grade. I just can't see it happening because the 15W50 is used by the hotrod/musclecar/drag racing/motorcycle people. Mobil would be stupid to kill it.

I went looking for some of that $1.22/qt 15W50 Mobil 1 over the weekend and came up empty. Every Target around here is cleaned out. I use it for racing, too.
