Got some Mobil 1 Synth. for $22/gal in the gal jugs

Volvo Parts talk... Which brands are bad, which are good? What Volvo part NEEDS to be OEM? What can we "cheat" on to save some money? OEM = "Original Equipment Manufacturer".

Got some Mobil 1 Synth. for $22/gal in the gal jugs

... at Kmart yesterday. Just the regular M1, not extended or strawberry-mango or whatever. I'm pretty proud of myself. Bought three.

I was in one of the local wal-marts and they had clearanced 10 Mobil 1 5w30 quarts for $1.00. Needless to say it all left with me and I checked for any more stuck away anywhere. I think they quit stocking so many flavors of Mobil 1 and this was one they were discontinuing. I went immediately and purchased it and put it out in the wagon before they could change their mind....
I also went to the other store across town (not a HUGE town mind you) to see if that store was doing the same. They still had it on shelf and I asked and they said it would be sold at reg price until gone, I like store #1 manager WAY better.

I always buy my oil from Walmart. I bought 2 gallons of Mobile 1 5W-30 there for the price of 5 quarts from the "other" autoparts store in town...

The only time you buy oil from a parts store is when its on the oil change special. I got 5 quarts of Mobil 1 synth oil and a Mobil 1 filter ($14 by itself) for $33.99, now that's a deal. And you could upgrade to the extended performance for another 2 dollars

While searching for the 3309 spec ATF I went to Walmart and they had 5 qts.of Castrol Import Multi ATF. Figured I'd find the rest (7+ qts) somewhere in town. No dice!! So I called the Distributors on Oregon who handled the Mobil 3309 and the one who handled the Castrol Import Multi ATF (meets 3309). Neither had dealers in Bend who stocked it. I asked the Castrol guy about Walmart. He says they make their own deals with the manufacturers and bypass the Distributors. Anyway, the Mobil Distr sent me a case of 3309 and spilt the freight. $62.00. Not bad. BTW: The Toyota dealer wanted $7.65 per qt!!

Columbus Ohio probably has more than one local Toyota dealer! Bend, OR has one...and the neareast other is quite a drive!Nothing like the threat of competition!
