was doing some online searching for good prices on Mobil 1 and while searching the NAPA website a great deal showed up.

If anyone is doing any travailing along highway 158 in North Carolina and if you go by or near the town of Murfreesboro NC stop in at the NAPA store located there. ( north eastern part of NC near the NC/Va border )

I just went to the Autozone site, navigated to Mobil-1 0W40, selected 12 qts then went to checkout. At the checkout it is listed as $7.99 but it will automatically subtract $48.00 from the order. Total order was $47.88 which is $3.99 per qt.
You must order and pay online then go to the store you selected to pickup your order.
It's good til Dec 1, 2010. Maximum 12 qts.

How did you find that sale?
It's well hidden and only shows up at the checkout.
Mike

[EDIT] I just picked up my 12 qts. The pickup slip they gave me had the full price of $95.88 + Tax. I called the Advance customer service number from the store and they confirmed that the stores cannot see the web site special prices but confirmed that my credit card was only billed for $47.88 + Tax. No one at the store knew of this sale and never saw Mobil-1 synthetic oils that cheep before.
I was thinking of ordering another 12 qts but I already have 20 qts in the garage and I just changed my oil a month ago.

Hey All! While we are on the subject of motor oil, can someone please give me some clarification?

I have a '99 ML430 and live in the St. Augustine, FL area...I was buying the Mobil-1 0W-50, but could not find it at my local Wal-Mart anymore, so I purchased the 0W-30. Will this cause any problems with my car?

Thanks a lot for your time!

I've never heard of Mobil-1 0W50 or 0W30 oils but I just found out that they do in fact exist. They are considered specialty racing oils and Mobil states that they should not be used for street use, specially not for vehicles with catalytic converters.

Mobil-1 0W40 European Car Formula was specifically formulated to meet the requirements of European designed engines and is used by manufacturers like Mercedes, Audi, Porsche, BMW, VW and others. It is quite popular around here and is stocked by most all auto part stores like AutoZone, Advance, Wallymart.

I have a independent mechanic that does my oil changes, and I am not sure what kind of oil he uses, however I have added Mobil 0W-50 when my oil was a low. Ironically I added a half of quart of 0W-30 just prior to a long holiday road trip, and I am now hearing a lot of loud noises coming from my engine that I had never heard before.

What is the recommend oil for a '99 ML430?

Thanks a lot for the feedback!

There are several approved oils for your ML. I don't have the list available right now but the Mercedes oil spec is 229.5. Hopefully someone will post the list here. I know that Mobil-1 0W40 is on the list and seems to be the most popular.

THIS is an awesome deal, 50% off! Basically you have to order/pay for it online, then go pickup at your local advance auto store.

I picked up 12 quarts of Mobil1 Euro 0w40 for $51.90 including tax. A bargain!

Nice get - many thanks!

Ordered 16 quarts of 0-40 for the ML, plus some other M1 for various applications.
Interesting the the M1 Euro 0-40 was the only item with the killer discount. Other items got an 'order $100, get a $50 coupon' deal, so its all good.

When I picked mine up the counter guy was flabbergasted. "What coupon code did you use?!" he asked. When I explained you didn't need one, just add it to the cart he said "Well, I know what I will be buying when I get home!". :)

Funny that even their own employees don't know about this deal.
