Is this a new product? Saw this at walmart the other day. I believe it said it was a synthetic blend for higher mileage vehicles. Priced around $2.17 a quart I think. Someone may correct me on that price. I've read that Mobil drive clean has a pretty bland additive package but I can't remember exactly but the Mobil Drive Clean Plus boasts to have an extensive additive package over regular Mobil Drive Clean. anyone know the specs of this oil?

Great idea. Put out a crummy product and then charge extra to get it up to the level of the competition. Oh yea-make sure you use the work "synthetic" [Roll Eyes]

Product Description http://www.mobil.com/USA-English/Lubes/PDS/GLXXENPVLMOMobil_Drive_Clean_Plus.asp Mobil Drive Clean Plus are new premium synthetic blend formulas engineered to provide added performance and protection with formulations specially designed for both newer vehicles, 5W-30 and higher mileage vehicles, 10W-30 and 10W-40. These products contain a mixture of synthetic and quality conventional base stocks with premium performance additives boosted by 23% which means more advanced detergent, dispersant, and anti-oxidants to help maintain or restore engine cleanliness. In addition to more performance additives, the higher mileage formulas are offered in higher viscosities to offer better oil consumption control, and contain seal swell conditioners to help condition seals as they age. These oils protect against sludge and engine rust and corrosion under severe low-temperature operating conditions. Because these are high performance synthetic blend products that have been boosted for added performance they help reduce engine wear, maintain long lasting protection and help prevent the build up of harmful sludge in hotter running engines, like turbocharged and light duty diesel engines. Pour depressants and viscosity index (VI) improvers are included to provide the desired viscosity-temperature and low-temperature fluidity characteristics. Mobil Drive Clean Plus - Newer Vehicle Formula (5W-30) is an engine oil designed for customers who want a product that goes beyond the performance of conventional motor oils. This premium synthetic blend formulation with extra cleaning and performance additives is available as an SAE 5W-30, the primary viscosity recommended for many newer vehicles. Mobil Drive Clean Plus 5W-30 contains friction-reducing additives and is classified by the American Petroleum Institute (API) as an "Energy Conserving" engine lubricant. It meets the performance requirements of API SL, CF and ILSAC GF-3. Mobil Drive Clean Plus - High Mileage Vehicle Formulas (10W-30, 10W-40) are engine oils designed for customers who want a product that goes beyond the performance of conventional motor oils and address the needs of higher mileage vehicles. These premium synthetic blend formulations with extra cleaning and performance additives plus seal conditioners are available as an SAE 10W-30 and 10W-40. These higher viscosity grades can be useful in addressing oil consumption and lubrication needs of higher mileage vehicles. These products meet the performance requirements of API SL, SJ, SH and CF. Applications Mobil Drive Clean Plus 5W-30 is recommended for gasoline fueled automobiles and light duty trucks requiring an API SL, SJ or SH product or ILSAC GF-3 (Starburst Certification Symbol). Also, this product meets the light-duty diesel engine requirement, API CF. This product is fully compatible with both conventional and synthetic engine oils.
