anyone using Mobil 1 synthetic

I'm looking to put Mobil 1 in for my next oil change in about a thousand miles or so and was curious 1) If anyone was getting it in gallons cause i can't find them and 2) How much are yall finding it for and where is the best place to get it, I saw a 6 quart case for 38.50 at autozone ...

Wal-Mart usually carries it in 4 quart jugs for like $22 a jug.

Comparing mobil1 to rotella is like comparing gold to lead. both very heavy, but one basiclly worthless. Rotella just doesn't hold up as well as Mobil 1 in these extreme oil shear engines. Spend the extra coin for the Mobil1. Your injectors will love you for it.

Yup...I wouldn't use that crap in my truck either.

This is what I use.

Valvoline is extremely good oil also, just a little tougher to find. I'd use it or the Mobil1. Both work very well in this engine.
