I went to the local store today and I ran into Mobil Full Synthetic oil.. However I also saw Mobil 1 right next to it. The label on the mobil looks to be old school ish and I noticed its missing the 1 for mobil 1. Is this just a refresh like a new label kinda thing? or is this new "Mobil" oil supposed to be better quality or better then the normal mobil 1?

See pic

thanks!

I believe the Mobil Full Synthetic is meant more to compete with Store Brand Full Synthetic oils, whereas Mobil1 is their premium Full Synthetic.

Maybe that's their intention, but here I can still get two bottles of Kirkland for less than one bottle of Mobil Full Synthetic at regular price.... so it's not very competitive in that market either

I would think that since Mobil has a marketing agreement with GM that if you find a Mobil product without the Dexos approval there is a reason for it...
