Mobil has just switched their cap color system concerning the new extended run oil.
Thanks... that what I was hoping... the bottle says it meets GM 4718M which is the vette spec i believe... Costco must have just taken a few thousand palettes of the stuff off of Mobil's hands so that Mobil could empty their inventory and get the new oils and new cap colors in the stores.

I have both blue and silver top Mobil 1 5W-30 fully synthetic oil. It matters more what the bottle says than what color the tops are.

When I go to Target I can't find their Mobil 1 oil.
:-?
Hmmm... I wonder if they ran out of stock, or if that one store doesn't carry Mobil 1 oil at all... Have you by chance asked them if they ever carry it?

It would help you find out if you just have to wait for them to restock or if you have to get it somewhere else...

Let me know what you find out!

I have seen both silver and blue. Silver looks to be their newer design. :usa:

I'm usually in a hurry and don't look for someone to ask. I'll have to check with someone next time.

That is the correct one. The new Extended Drain Mobil 1 does not meet this spec and doesn't have it on the bottle. :cheers:
Do you know if they're still going to produce the normal (non extended drain) synthetic? I'll be shopping for oil this weekend....

I personally use AMSOIL series 2000 0 W 30 and I don't worry about cap color. I'm old and get confused easy

They are selling both kinds. So be careful when you shop that you pick out the one that meets GM 4718M spec. :cheers:
