I just found out that Walmart started carying 0w40 for our T1N in 5 quarts bottles. They are around $25. Check your local store to save some money over the individual quart bottles.

It may be local or regional Walmarts that are carrying them. But I hope all will at that price.:bow:

$6.47 is the every day regular price. I haven't seen a 5-quart or gallon jug yet.

When I occasionally visit the N.F. Walmart store I always check for Mobil 1 0w-40 Euro oil. They have had it the odd time, but mostly not.

I just did a search for the oil on their site. It is listed as in-store only, but can be ordered on-line and picked up. The 2 closest stores to me N.F. and North Tonawanda aren't eligible for pick-up because they don't stock it (quarts or jugs). The Amherst store (about 20 minutes from me) stocks it at $6.97/qt.

Euro formula and ESP seem to both be difficult to locate in our area, even when I check the stores mentioned on the forum. :idunno:

Pep Boys stocks both, but the price is usually 8 bucks n' change.

I watch for sales and opportunities to stock up now so I do OK. It sure would be nice if our local store carried it in jugs at the prices being mentioned in this thread. :cheers: vic

Sometimes the stores I go in are sold out or only have a few quarts. I started picking it up when I see it. I just changed oil, so I probably won't have to do it again untill Fall. $57.50 (before tax) vs $30 (before tax) for regular Delo oil. Delo needs to be changed every 10k, the 0-40 can go up to 25k (I change at 15k). In the long run, the 0-40 is actually cheaper to purchase, and MUCH better for your engine; so even cheaper to operate by reducing, preventing or minimizing repairs.

What's the European formula? I checked the local WalMart and they had 10-40 and 15-50 in a 5qt. jug.

Mobil 1 0w-40 European Car Formula is what they label it. It is MB 229.5 approved. Good for 2001 - 2006 NAFTA OM612 and OM647 2.7L 5 cylinder engines.

http://www.mobiloil.com/USA-English/MotorOil/Oils/Mobil_1_0W-40.aspx

Mobil 1 5w-40 ESP (prominently displayed on the label) is low ash formula. It is MB229.51 approved. Good for all NAFTA Sprinters, but it is required for a Sprinter having a DPF Diesel Particulate Filter. All NAFTA OM642 3.0L 6 cylinder engines have come with an OEM DPF system.

Those two Mobil 1 products are not always stocked by many stores. vic

OK, are you saying that 0w-40 Chevron Delo is MUCH BETTER for your engine.....or the other way around.... Mobil1 European Car Formula 0W-40 full synthetic is better?
Kind hard to tell as you only refer to it as 0w-40.
There are non Chevron "Delo" oils on the MB BEVO 229.5.
Also, for Vic,
The Mobil 1 5W-40 Emissions Systems Protection (ESP) is Formula M and as you suggest it's low ash (actually low SPASH) and is IMHO
the preferred engine oil for the OM-642 V6 3.0 liter Sprinters ('07-'13).

I short-cut Mobil-1 0-40 European Formula to "0-40". I also short-cut Chevorn Delo to "Delo". I don't know if there is a Chevron Delo 0-40.

On my various trips across the country I have only seen the euro 0w-40 in SuperWalmarts and never in the regular Walmarts.

Good to hear a 5-qt jug was spotted. Which store?

It was a Walmart in western Kentucky. Also there are some reports of big jugs spotted at Walmarts in South Dakota.

Seems here in Arizona the going Walmart price is up to $6.97 as of a couple weeks ago. Anywhere else adds minimum of $2 per quart. I saw the 0W40 Eu formula in 5 qt jugs at PepBoys in Yuma, they were considerably higher than singles at Walmart.

C'mon Ciprian,
You know all too well that you're being too much of a straight man for me to resist.






I think that I remember seeing those at Walmart.

Vic,
That is not what I had in mind when I posted above. Thanks for the laugh.

I saw this thread some time ago and went to WM to see if I could get some for Me to find nothing, it was not until today that I found the last two 5qt bottles of Mobil european car formula for $24.97. They were in the gasoline oil section but I checked and they say 229.5 approved so I snatch them. When I first got the van I had to pay $44 for the same 5qt bottle, ouch.

If you go to the WM web site and search Mobil 1 0W40 you can get a list of stores stocking jugs.
You may have to designate a "my store".

Bob,
Good information. I've tried that a couple times. In my area "My store" "sucks".

Worth trying though. vic

...ahhh... they have it in the one (out of 4) WalMarts that i don't normally drive by.
(and they don't have it in the other dozen stores in the area (i wonder what they mean by "limited stock"?))
Only 1 store is offering to send an email when it gets in stock...
