Fisbo, I never questioned your intelligence, just the accuracy of your statement. I suggested that maybe you are not all that familiar with Mobil 1 and its retail price at Wal-Mart. There are many Amsoil reps (and friends of Amsoil reps) who spread misinformation in this and other newsgroups. I would really like to know which Wal-Mart you got a price of $4.90 per US quart (approximate location will suffice).
