Default 0w40 Mobile One anywhere?

Anyone see any in town? 3 Wal-Marts and 1 Pepboys later and I am still looking. Need to do some PM this weekend on the 80 so it won't get too jealous when the 40 takes over the spot in the garage. Thanks.

It's always been at the walmart on Arapahoe Road when I looked, just east of Havana. Might try calling them.

the Wallmart at Flatirons Crossing has it. Wallmart in Lafayette does not. Autozone in lafayette has it. Checker does not.


Rarely do they have more than 4 quarts though. I actually keep a 9 quart "safety stock" in the garage, then after an oil change spend the next couple months picking up a quart or two here & there. If you really got in a pinch and wanted to borrow some let me know.

That's what I used to do, but somehow fell behind. Thanks for the info guys, I will do some calling...although I have not had the best of luck calling...half the time they are wrong anyway...

If anyone sees any soon, but me some! I'll come pick it up with your favorite 6-pack.

Walmart down doesn't carry it... neither does the local Mobil distributor... best price & easiest I've found is Amazon.com (of all places)...

0Wbenefit unless you're running your rig in -40░ conditions. JMHO - to each their own :-)

I just looked and don't have the links on this computer, but there's literally a buttload of discussions of what the pros and cons of different oil types (dino vs synth vs blend) different brands and different viscosities. IMHO changing oil and filter regularly trumps, what kind of oil you use.

If you want to use 0W40 syth, go for it! I don't think it's worth the extra money, but some folks do and it's hotly debated. A Land Cruiser engine, properly built (and no, my F engine refresh this past summer doesn't count, that was quick and cheap!) should last 200-300k miles as long as the oil and filter are changed regularly; I change both every 2500 miles/4000kMs.

Again, JMHO, after putting over three quarter of a million miles on my Land Cruisers.

Here is the Oil FAQ from the 80's section on Mud. Looks like I need to fix the links for the pictures

http://forum.ih8mud.com/showthread.php?t=79305

Mobil 1 0-40W and Redline 5-30W are actually close in viscosity. Mobil 1 tends to be thinner at weights. cary and Raventai, who helped with the FAQ, are very knowledgeable about oil.

If you really want to know wabout oil, go to www.bobistheoilguy.com
