Oil change time was today. Even though I only put about 1500 miles on my Vette in the last year, (It was real busy summer for me, not much cruzin) I figured once a year is prudent.

So I went to pick up some Mobil One and noticed Pep Boy and R&S Strauss getting over $7 a quart!!! No case sales.

Is that a New York city price or has it gone up all over??

Just bought it 6 qt jugs for $22.53 at wall mart in Portsmouth NH. No sales tax in NH .
The Wal-Mart jugs are 5 quart, but that's still a good price. I bought one last week for $25 and change (incl. 7.75% sales tax).

It must be a NH-only thing, or they are selling you old stock. No one else seems to know about these 6-qt jugs.

I was at the local Wally World this morning and Mobil-1 5W-30 was $5.68 for a quart but the 5-quart jug was $21.84.

Costco has a 6-pack case of quarts for $28.94.

I know this is a Moble 1 thread, but what about Penzoil Platinum? Full synthetic for $2.99 at walmart. Meets or exceeds GM 4718M (C4) requirments to.

$5.75 (pre tax) a qt at WallMart in San Jose, CA. Of course after California tax, it's the better part of $7. :eyerole

I too had an oil change, filter and lube ($59.11 total) at my Chevy dealership on Aug 30. Cost for 7 quarts of Mobil 1 was $41.93, which is $5.99 per quart.

Has anybody else been spoiled by the 5 quart jug ? I use Mobil 1 in my Ecotec engine in the Cavalier as well as the Corvette. Since I started buying the jug I can't stand buying the individual quarts, it just makes it so much easier and faster to do the oil changes ! Anybody else ?

I was in Wally World today and saw the 5 Qt jugs on sale for a little over $23.00 I'll have to go back with the truck and get a few. the only thing hard about the 5 qt jugs is pre-filling the filter; I usually spill some;LOL
