Mobile T5?

Last oil change I found rotella 10w30 on sale, but can't seem to locate any now. Anybody using the mobile T5 from Wal Mart? If so, any issues? I've never used a mobile product but the CJ4 rating seems the same. Thanks

Don't use Mobile T5, but I use Rotella T6.
Have been using Rotella for years, won't change.

Do you mean Mobil 1 TDT 5W-40? If so that should be a fine oil to use, full synthetic and Mobil makes a quality product.

Ok, thanks. Picked it up today, but the price jumped from 12.98 to 16.00 since last weekend. I'll dump it in this weekend. I've changed the oil a couple of times, but not the fuel filters. Gonna try that this weekend too.

Search for EpicCowlick's video on the fuel filter change. It's worth the few minutes it'll take.

If you can't afford it all at once just buy a gallon jug every couple of weeks...Wal-Mart is the cheapest place I found @ 21 and change

Although I take immaculate care of my vehicles, I don't bother with synthetic because I've always traded about the time the warranty expires. I did change the oil and first fuel filter change yesterday. Except for a little trouble removing the engine mounted fuel filter, it was actually a piece of cake. Much easier fuel filter change than the 2008.
