Thumbs up Mobil1 Rebate Offer

Mobil 1 Rebates and Offers - Save on Store Purchases and Oil Changes

If you use it in your bike, DO NOT use the "Energy Conserving" grades. They may cause clutch issues.

If your bike has a separate 'bag' for the clutch (such as HD's), the above doesn't apply. Consult your Owner's manual for the proper grade of oil to use.

I have to use BMW motorcycle performance lubricant in my bike or else it'll seize up, explode and melt all at the same time.

I just used 3.5 quarts of that miracle elixir, and 4.5 quarts of Mobil1 in the car.

I buy whichever full synthetic is on sale, but prefer the Mobil 1. I know it's not really true, but it sure seems like the bike runs smoother with it.

Use it to cook with, I don't care!

But to me, $15 off a 5-qt jug is a deal!

You're welcome!

Dude!

I can't afford to win it! What's the tax on a gift? 30%?

"One (1) Grand Prize: A 2011 Chevrolet Camaro SHR. This special-edition 2011 Chevy Camaro convertible is customized by Tony Stewart and the Mobil 1 team. Approximate retail value (ARV)–$50,000.00 (excluding tax, license, and registration)."

So the 'free' car would cost me $17 large, plus the painful visit to the tag office.

Sell it, you say!? You might be able to, and quickly pay off the loan for the tax.

My dad won a car in Vegas, luckily there was a cash option.

Thats like winning on "the price is right" get the big showcase and then sell most of it to pay the taxes. Though you cant sell for top dollar so you sell for less, get taxed on the full amount. Fun stuff...

Mobil1 causes loud valves now. I won't touch it. Same problem in my buddy's Street Triple. I don't know what they did to it in the last few years but it is not the same.

Loud valves? I gotta admit; that's a new one.

I'm going to have to think about that. How would an oil make the valves louder...

Or - is it that the rest of the engine is quieter?
