Re: Mobil-1 changes formula?

I'm not sure how old your existing Mobil 1 inventory is, but Mobil 1's
website provides a press release dated April 1, 1999, that talks about their

If you wander around Mobil 1's website, you will also find spec sheets for
the different formulations of Mobil 1.  Enjoy.  HTH.
