Everyone (3 walmarts, Autozone) is out of of M1 5W-20. I'm just over 7K miles from my last change, so I wanted to change it today. Bought Pennzoil Platinum Full Synthetic 5W-20 at walmart and put it in the Mag. If she blows, I'll be sure to let you guys know!

Psssst, the key is to buy in large quantities when its available....and cheap. Under $20 per gallon.

mobil 1 oil availability

there is a sign up at the walmart here in phoenix, the refinery in texas was damaged by hurrican ike and will not be fully operational til a little later this year. I bought castrol 5w-20 syntech because walmart was out of mobil 1. I certainly think this should also be a very good oil and am not at all concerned about using it.

The problem with changing brands is that it may affect non-matalic seals, gaskets and parts and can cause leaks. This is due to incompatability of the different addatives used by the manufacturers. The older or higher mileage the car, the more likely leaks will happen. It is better to stick with hte same brand if possible.
