Mobil 1 engine oil and filter

While shopping for motorcycle oil I noticed a couple of sales that some of you who use Mobil 1 oil and/or Mobil 1 Motorcycle oil filter or Mobil 1 Extended Performance oil filter might be interested in for your motorcycle, truck or car.

AutoZone has an in-store only coupon for $4 off Mobil 1 Motorcycle or Extended oil filters. Valid until 4/29/13.

Through several small stores or Amazon.com, there is a rebate for Mobil 1 oil purchase, rebate $12. Oil and filter, $15. Ends 5/31/13.

Information on the deals are listed on the Mobil 1 page below.

Rebates, Sweepstakes and Coupons | Mobil 1 Synthetic Oil

And no, I do not work for or promote Mobil 1 but I know some of you use it.

And yes, there are several other engine oils that you can use in your motorcycle but many that you can't. I think we have plenty of threads that cover it.

I know how much some of you like to debate engine oil so go ahead if you like, I enjoy the show

Costco had the Mobil 1 Synthetic on sale 2 months ago. I got 3x 6pks (max per member) at about $4/qt. Not bad

Are Mobil 1 filters as good as Fram?

Here's the order of filtration in micron level:
Wool sock > skeet-infused sock > Scotts Stainless > Fram > Mobil 1

Very nice! Was that for the regular Mobil 1 Synthetic? Not the motorcycle Mobil 1 Racing 4T, correct?

And for those who do use Mobil 1 in their motorcycles, which Mobil 1 do you use?

Has anyone used the Mobil 1 Racing 4T? Seems really expensive (around $10 to $14 per qt).

what ever oil you use will be "fine" so long as it doesnt have energy-conserving additives. Beyond that its all personal preference.

Mine because im cheap as shit.... Shell Rotella T 15w-40 standard oil. Jaso MA certified for use in motorcycles. 12.50ish a gallon.

Yup. If that was for the 4T, I would've given another member cash to buy with their membership lol.

Haha now that's funny. I think you know what it means but for those that think it has something to do with yelling "Pull!" (although I guess you could) here it is: Urban Dictionary: skeet skeet

I just put in 4T for the first time. Pep Boys carries it for $10.99/qt. Yeah, it's pricey, but I put so few miles on my bike that oil changes are few and far between.

I've used M1 4T, RP, Silkolene, and Amsoil. All did their jobs properly...then I got the 919 and it wasn't long until I found out about Rotella. Then I tried Mobil 1 Delvac Synthetic and the rest is history. Maybe it was poor form or absent minded shifting but I've had moments of false neutrals on the Rotella, particularly on day-long rides. Never happened on the Delvac Dino or Syn.

On the lower front of the engine, just behind the headers.

Do you have a pic of said Delvac Synthetic? I couldn't find Delvac Syn anywhere. Walmart, Advance Auto, AutoZone & Pep Boys. All there was the standard Delvac.

Standard delvac is black, synthetic is gray. Maybe try a truck stop? The local Napa Auto carries them around here. Walmart also iirc

I will check Napa later today. I have been to 4 Walmarts, 2 in PA & 2 in NJ & none of them have the syn stuff.
