So what is the real deal between Mobil 1 and Mobile 1 Extended Performance? Other than the price, is the extra cost worth it? I did buy it for my first oil change since I have bought the truck.

EP uses a full synthetic base stock, the regular Mobil1 does not. You can get all of the info you'd ever want to know about oil at bobistheoilguy.com.

Is there a 5w-20 in EP? If so, I haven't seen it at WM yet. There's plenty of 5w-20 Mobil 1, just not the EP. It wasn't that long ago I could pick up a 5 qt container of Mobil 1 for $15 at WM. Now it's $26.

Yes, WM does carry 5W-20EP, however, I've only seen it carried in the 1QT bottles, not the 5QT wally-jug that most of the other M1 is available in. Additionally, I often have to go to multiple WM's to get enough for a change as each only seems to have a few bottles.

I've lucked out before when changing the oil on my IS350 (6.7QTs) and managed to find 7 bottles at one store.

For a minute I thought this was turning into a Viagra thread..........

You're thinking with your dipstick, Jimmy. It does sound like a Viagra commercial. Any info on that new Castrol?
