    Mobil1 is all hype, and you pay for it. That's what's going on. Just like Sylvania halogen bulbs.

    A lot of people rag on Walmart oil but do you guys realize that they don't have their own refinery? That means that they buy mass quantities of regular oil from other companies and then repackage it.
