Mobil 1 Oil Warning

I heard from a local shop that when the last Hurricane came through Mobil 1 moved their oil creation to another company since they were down. The company who did the job put to much Zinc in the mix and many are having failing engines. I think move have been pulled and most were for 50 gallon drums shipped to automakers and such like BMW. So... if you use it keep you bottles or find out if you can check to make sure the bottles you have are safe.

Re: Mobil 1 Oil Warning

Which hurricane would this be and how long ago? I only use bottles but did change my oil about 2 months ago in the Cobra using Mobil1 synthetic...

Might drain it again to be on the safe side.

Re: Mobil 1 Oil Warning

I've been using Quaker State full syn for the last several oil changes... always Mobil 1 before that. I thought they would do a little better job of checking their **** than this

Re: Mobil 1 Oil Warning

cause it has fosfates in the oil that is real good for the cam, plus it is a lot heavier duty than any gas oil
