A) Are the two clones of another? B) At K-Mart last week I bought the Exxon to top of the Mobil 1 in the parents car. Incidentally the Exxon was cheaper by .20$ I reasoned they could be the same thing by the Exxon-Mobil conglamerate. C)It was interesting that a couple weeks ago Mobil Drive Clean said "Synthetic Blend." The Bottle of Mobil no longer says that. Any ideas on what happened?

I noticed the same thing at Wal-Mart. Last week the Mobil 1 bottles said 10w30 and this week they say 0w30, 5w30, 10w30, and 15w50. Any ideas on what happened? [Big Grin]

C)You missed my point Mobil Drive Clean Synthetic Blend....i checked three different stores and they all changed. All i found was Mobil Drive Clean by itself. So either they are not ordering it, Mobil Drive Clean Syn Blend no longer exists. None of the 0w30, 5w30, joke-remarks. Thanks-

Were all of the local stores you looked at part of the same chain? Maybe it's possible the Mobil sales guy had a deal going on the blend? Dunno what the reason, but they are two separate products and i have seen both being sold next to each other on more than one occasion. But regarding the difference between Mobil Drive Clean (100% dino) and Superflo, they are different oils. Different specs, different properties, etc. However, if you're topping off a Mobil 1 fill, you should use Mobil 1. I would doubt it, since they're the same manufacturer, but additive clash is possible and should be avoided if possible. Mobil 1 is really easy to find, so the excuse of availablity shouldn't be an option. I always have a quart of Mobil 1 in my trunk just in case i need to top up. ferb!

'Round here in the NE, Wal-Marts are not putting Drive Clean Blend onto their shelves anymore. When a case (6/box) comes in, it is stuck on the top shelf with the other cases. Not sure if this is a pre-cursor to dropping the blend due to poor sales...

They are two different things. Drive Clean is a conventional oil available in 5w20, 5w30, 10w30, 10w40, and 20w50. Drive Clean Blend is a synthetic blend oil available in 5w30 and 10w30. Drive Clean comes in blue bottles. Drive Clean Blend comes in charcoal grey bottles.
