I was surprised when i was visiting Delaware...this includes filter, chasis lub, top off for everything else...hahah and car vacuuming *lol* All I did was supply the Delco filter...some people say good things about the thier Tech line filter perhaps I am just un ultra-conservative maintence mode here. So for 30.00$ a Mobil 1 SuperSyn oil change is quite a bargain over lets say buying it yourself and supplying to the dealer for the non DIY'ers.

You can get any synthetic oil they carry for $30. They will also install any brand filter they stock, charging extra only the price difference compared to their brand or Fram.....depending on that particular WalMart. My local Wal Marts standard filter is the Fram in most applications....

Bottom line if on one hand you have Quaker State Syn, Castrol Syn and then Mobil 1 on the other: Mobil 1 would imo be the logical best buy for the money.

That is great! I called the Walmart by my house any they do the 15-point check for $30(5 qts Mobil 1 or any synthetic on the self) or just the oil/filter/lube for $27.88. I think this is going to get me back into synthetics. Thanks again!! I fogot to add, they use the Fram Pro-Series filter. [ February 12, 2003, 11:49 AM: Message edited by: dagmando ]

My youngest brother is a sales rep, drives the p** out of his cars. He's been using the $30 M1 oil change at Wally World for years. Runs that M1 *Way* too long a lot of the time, too.

Hey Yall, Perhaps I am not being logical on this. Would it be wise of us all to keep our mouth shut on this Mobil 1 bargain change? My knowledge of economics is nill and I fear if we "tell" everyone Walmart may get greedy and JACK the prices of Mobil 1 changes to that of the 45$-50$ dealer ranges for synthetic service [Frown] If my thinking is wacky on this please reply.

Their basic oil change package with Supertech dino oil and Fram filter is $11.94 (no vacuuming or other fancies). Also a screaming bargain compared to dealership oil changes. They wouldn't do it if they didn't make money, although in this case they may be making their profit by getting you to browse the store for at least half an hour. Most of the people I would "tell" about the Mobil 1 bargain wouldn't give a flip.

Given the sheer size of the Wal-Mart company, I think that if every one of us did our very best to publicise this, they still wouldn't notice the increase in sales!
