It was $24.49/gallon at Mills Fleet Farm the last time I was there, a couple months ago. Actually a dollar or two cheaper than M1 TDT. Meijer's has it too, but neither FF nor Meijer's mentions it on their web sites.

Got delivery on 5 more gallons of Devac1 5w-40. I guess an optimist is someone with enough oil to last another 130k miles for a car with 350k miles.

350k miles for an ALH engine is just nicely broken in.

Most every other part can be replaced and is worth replacing, once you've decided to keep the car forever.

Well it has a fresh suspension and minty gti recaros... so not too bad. I wouldn't hesitate to drive it anywhere. Thanks for your typical trolling snide off-topic remark though.

You're Welcome. TornadoRed took it off topic. Lets not have any thoughts here that may pose a question.

Just picked up 4 gal at Advance Auto back Friday evening at $29.99/gal. Not quite as good as what Rich found, but after rebate not too shabby...

Did not see Walmart on this list of participating retailers:

https://mobildelvac.com/en/promotion...l-distributors

AAP is on the list though.

I've seen them honor retailers not on the list. I think when I did it a few years back Pep Boys wasn't on the list but they honored it (I called first to confirm I think).

All Mobil 1 oil, including the ESP 0W-30 but not the ESP 5W-30, are on sale at NAPA for $5.99/L. I just sent an email to NAPA's customer service and see why the ESP 5W-30 would be excluded from the sale.

Probably because of its super high MSRP.

I noticed Rotella T6 5W-40 is on sale (with rebate) at Advance Auto today ... the rebate form is also available for purchases at Amazon https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01LH7L0KS

Mobil Delvac has the $60/5gallon rebate promotion on until 12/31
https://mobiloil.com/en/promotion/mobil-promotions

Pepboys has it for $27.19 (15% off) until 11/26.
https://www.pepboys.com/product/deta...071?quantity=1

Somewhere around $16/gallon with the rebate.
