Cheap Synthetic Oil!!!!!

Friends,

if you use Rotella Shell T6 oil, here is a deal for you...

Go to advanced auto parts (online) and order 3 gallons of the Rotella T6 full synthetic oil ($19.99/gal), then use coupon code ES123 to give you instant -$20 off...

select in-store pickup then go to that store (pick the one close to you) and pick it up...so instead of $60 you only pay $40 (plus tax...which is like $3).

Then print the receipt (well you should print it to show it to the sale clerk to pickup the oil), and print this mail in rebate to get another $20 off.... well not sure if they will honor (I just mailed mine in) the rebate but they should as it meets all their requirements.

Enjoy.

Thumbs down Cheap Oil?

Can you use this oil on bikes? is this oil Motorcycle oil?

http://www.mobil.com/USA-English/Mot..._FAQs.aspx#top


So how is Mobil 1 for passenger cars different from Mobil 1 for motorcycles?

It's a little hard to generalize about the difference between Mobil 1 passenger-car motor oils and Mobil 1 motorcycle oils. That's because not all viscosities of Mobil 1 passenger-car oils have the same levels of zinc and phosphorus, and there are even greater differences among the three Mobil 1 motorcycle oils. In general, Mobil 1 motorcycle oils have:

Additive packages balanced differently for motorcycle engine and transmission operation. For passenger vehicles, fuel economy and emission system protection are higher priorities. These require low phosphorus systems and the use of friction modifiers. Motorcycle oils do not require friction modifiers for fuel economy and for better clutch friction less/no friction modifier is optimum. Motorcycle oils allow the use of higher levels of antiwear additives such as ZDDP (phosphorous).

What about Mobil 1 V-Twin oil? How is that different from Mobil 1 for passenger cars?

Mobil 1 V-Twin oil is designed for air-cooled, large-displacement bikes. Because of their design, these engines can generate very high localized oil temperatures and high overall bulk-oil temperatures.

As you know, a typical air-cooled V-twin's rear cylinder gets a lot hotter than the front cylinder it's a matter of airflow. When it's hot out and you're stuck in traffic, the oil temperature in your bike climbs rapidly. Above about 250F, conventional motor oil is going to break down. Mobil 1 V-Twin synthetic oil is good to above 300F.

Like Mobil 1 Racing 4T 10W-40, Mobil 1 V-Twin has high levels of phosphorus/zinc and the same high-temperature detergent technology for superior wear protection and engine cleanliness, even at elevated oil temperatures.

With Mobil 1 V-Twin oil, you can go the full length of the manufacturer's recommended oil change intervals with ease.

The owner's manual says I should change the oil every 5,000 miles or once a year. I change my oil every 2,500 miles or twice a year. So why do I need that kind of protection?

For peace of mind and added protection. You pay a lot for a bike these days, so why risk running your engine in ordinary oil? Just like Mobil 1 synthetic oil for cars, Mobil 1 synthetic motorcycle oil helps keep your engine clean free from varnish and deposits and smooth running mile after mile, no matter what conditions you ride in.

Mobil 1 benefits engine life and performance. In fact, the lubrication capability of Mobil 1 motorcycle oil helps maintain peak horsepower and acceleration throughout the life of your engine. And with Mobil 1 you can go the full 5,000 miles between oil changes.

So, if you want to ride your bike long and hard and not be concerned about the oil, choose Mobil 1 motorcycle oil.

i use it on my bike..but others will not...it's an ever on going debate.
If you wish to not use it on the bike, you can use it on your cars. My Tundra 5.7L takes like 5 to 6 quarts at a time...so I got myself like 5 gallons
