Re: mobil 1

I usually get it at Wal-Mart although I haven't looked for it recently.

Re: mobil 1

I have tried to find it everywhere-Walmart has stopped carrying it, and in the 1 quart containers it gets real pricey.

Hope someone has an idea. I've stopped at Walmarts all over the midwest on rides just hoping to find a few on the shelf.

They also changed the formula when they changed the label. Works great!

Re: mobil 1

The 5 quart container was not available at the end of last season but I was going through WallyWorld last weekend and I saw a 5 QT 15w-50 so maybe it is back. I thought about buying but I have enough left for my next service.

Red Line Oil
I don't feel so bad about paying $10.99 per quart for Mobil 1 20W-50 motorcycle oil at O'Reilly's the last couple of years now that I see Red Line in the one gallon container is about the same unit cost. I never heard of the brand name Red Line until you mentioned using it. Were you saying that it is Mobil 1 with just a name change, Tony?

Re: mobil 1

Red Line Products are popular with most BMW auto specialty retailers such as Bavarian Auto, Turner Motorsports, etc. It's considered equal to or better than the so called "lifetime" BMW branded transmission fluids, rear drive gear lubes, etc. I'm not as familar with their motorcycle products but all my cars have done well for many years with Red Line fluids.

No, Tips, I was just playing off Matthew's joke about it, where he said "I found mine on Amazon, however the changed the label, and now it says 'RED LINE'."
