Some years ago I used Mobil 1 in the 5W-50 viscosity range for my motorcycles
(made them leak faster - big mistake on an English bike). I ran out of my
original case a couple of years ago, and in the recent past, all I have seen
in the higher reaches of the range is the 15W-50 which you mention. Mobile
does sell a different range of oils (including different additive pacakges)
in Europe, so the 5W-50 may still be on offer in Europe. Anybody seen it
here (U.S.) in the last few years?
