    Is there a difference in these two oils? other than labeling?

    Green label bought at Oreilly's & states Advanced fuel performance
    Golden label bought at Walmart & states extended performance

    Thanks,
    ML

    Don't know, but when I have had questions in the past, Mobil was good about responding directly to me.
    Suggest you take your question to them…. https://mobiloil.com/en/contact-us

    Thanks Estancio, here is the reply, in yellow, from Mobil oil...

    Luis, The advanced fuel economy helps you save about 2% on your fuel and can go 10,000 miles. The Extended Performance is a more robust oil and has 50% more base stock, also a propitiatory on pao oil, and super antiwear package which is our best oil and goes 15,000 miles. -Mauricio

    Greetings Mobil,
    I have a question regarding Mobil-1 0W20 oil to be used on my 2011 FJ Cruiser on which I do my own oil changes. On my previous oil changes, I was buying the one gallon jugs at Autozone or Oreillys and the latest one I bought was a Walmart. The labels are different I wish I could attach a picture. The jugs purchased at autoparts stores mentioned have a green background label with the statement across it saying Advanced Fuel Economy along with the recommened vehicle use. The jug purchased at Walmart has a light brown label which states Extended Performance, 15,000 Miles of Guaranteed Performance. Is the product the same? Just different labels? Should I use one over the other for my 50,000 mile FJ Cruiser?

    Thanks you in advance for your time.
    Best Regards,
    Luis M. Dominguez

    I guess from now on I'll use the brown label stuff from Walmart for better engine protection & in case I go over the recommened oil change intervals.

    I was just at WalMart today buying oil. The 5 quart jug of Extended Performance (brown) was only $2 more than the Advanced Fuel Economy. Probably worth the extra 40 cents per quart.

    According to 540 RAT at MOTOR OIL ENGINEERING TEST DATA

    The brown bottle Mobil 1 Extended Performance tested at 100,229 psi OUTSTANDING wear protection.

    The green bottle Mobil 1 Advance Fuel Economy tested at 79,612 psi GOOD wear protection.

    Around here a 5 quart jug at WalMart is usually about $25 but it can vary up or down a dollar.

    AMSOIL is way better than any Mobil 1 product. 25,000 miles or one year on Amsoil. Use amsoil in the tranny and love the smoother shifts.

    That is interesting. I like Kendall GT-1 0W-20 that I get online for $5/qt and free shipping when I buy a case of 12 quarts. Seems like a good oil. I have a mental block at going over 10k on a change so I usually change the oil and filter at less than 10k ( last weekend was 9400) Toyota recommend 10k changes on their filters and those are $50 for a case of ten. I work with guys who swear by Royal Purple but that is $10/qt!!!!
    I am not cheap and my mantra is "you get what you pay for" but I am not paying $10/qt when other products meet the criteria.
