Mobil1 5w30 Annual Protection?

I noticed that WalMart started carrying these Mobil1 Extended Performance Oil Filters lately, but just last night I noticed that there is a new Mobil1 product that I have never even heard of, (or can't even find on their website:) Mobil1 5w30 Annual Protection. Label says "Ultimate Full Synthetic" on the front and nothing on the back of the label to compare it to other M1 brands. Price was almost 2x the regular M1 5w30 Full Synthetic. I think I'll stick with my M1 5w30 EP as they claim 15,000 miles on it, and it's only $28 for a 5qt jug. Will be interested to learn what makes this new Annual Protection variant cost so much more.

My OCI is twice a year. For that price, I can do 2 OC's using Magnatec and OEM filters with change left over.

I drive about 10-12K miles a year and change my oil at 10K intervals so that amounts to an annual oil change. Annual changes are probably a good idea with the right oil and driving conditions. You can see my UOA just posted in the Passenger car oil thread. It was done at 160K total mileage.

On another thread about this oil, the disclaimer says to follow the OLI and or manufacturers OCI.

Yeah, I missed that with a quick search for Mobil1 Annual Protection. M1 5w30 EP for 15k miles is $28.48 but M1 5w30 AP for 20k miles is $48.48 - that's silly.

Haha I noticed that too! That's absolutely HILARIOUS!! Every time I see those anti theft devices it always reminds me of a store we had years ago called Wilson's,and they always had those devices on the ghetto blasters in the stereo department haha.

They didn't have a price for it on the shelf at Walmart. So I took it over to the scanner and almost dropped the jug when the price popped up!
