Subject: Re: Does anyone use synthetic oils?


I'm in Illinois, too, the far southern part, and the Wal-Marts in the area have the 5 qt. bottles of Mobil 1 about twice a year. The last time around, I think they were something like $17.88. I just stock up each time they run the deal. I use it in a Volvo, a Saab, a Mitsubishi and a 1974 VW Beetle. I know they've had the same deal in San Antonio, too. Just need to check around.
