Mobil 1

Costco has Mobil 1 on sale until July 6th. It is $10 of a case of 6 quarts. Which makes it about $26 dollars. That's about $4.33 a quart. I have a class A with a Ford V-10. Since I can't pour the gallon jugs into the oil fill the sale really helps because I need the quart bottles.

My Costco carries the 5w-20 that the V-10 takes. I hope yours does too.

I'm about to do my first oil change, and I noticed you stating that we can't get the gallon jugs? Is that because of clearance?

What advice do you give for oil change on the V10?

I have a Tiffin Open Road 35 QBA. The oil fill is up so high under the hood that I can't get the gallon or the 5 quart jugs up there to pour them. The quarts work fine. There were a couple of threads on the Ford Chassis forum that offered up some good tips about changing the oil on the F-53 chassis. You might want to go there and do a search for "changing oil". I didn't buy one yet but they suggested buying a replacement oil drain plug that has a valve you open to drain the oil which also has a fitting to slide a hose on to direct the oil in the drain pan. It is messy with out one because the oil runs on the front axle and drips everywhere.

When we had the 1999 older chassis it was very difficult to get the oil plastic quart bottle inverted. On the newer engine 2006, it is easier and you might get the 5 quart container in but a quart bottle works OK as well. I just get the 5 quarts containers and use an older quart bottle.

With the V-10 it is recommended that you use the Ford OEM filter. I guess some of the other manufacturers had problems with particles of paper breaking off and clogging some oil passage ways. I'm not going to chance it so I went to the dealer and got the Ford replacement. They are only about $7 which is not bad.

I also got the Futomo quick change valve. It's about $25 but it's a lot easier to change oil and with the ability to add a 1/2" plastic hose it's not a messy. Some were reluctant to use the valve for fear that it could get hit and break off and you'd loose all your oil. On the newer V-10 I think I'd have to hit two railroad ties in a row before it could get hit. It's fairly well protected.

Stop by harbor freight for five dollars or so you can get a plastic transfer pump it's a hand operated pump that is rated for use in gasoline and solvents. I carry one and use it every time I change oil it's also very handy for brake fluid as there is only about an inch of clearance above the master cylinder.

The first time I changed the oil I had the 5 Quart jug that I purchased from Walmart. I had to pour it in a quart bottle so I could pour it in the engine. Then I saw Costco had the Mobil 1 on sale in quart bottles cheaper than the 5 quart jug at Walmart so it just made sense to buy the quart bottles from Costco. I have been watching their ad and Sams ad for the sale to be on again and it just came yesterday. It is limited to 3 cases so I usually make 2 trips. I use Mobil 1 in my other cars so this save us a lot of money.

Since we live in Wally-World land we have no Costco's. I don't even know where the closest one is to us here in NW AR.

Yes they did have the 5w-20 on sale like you said. Picked mine up yesterday. Thanks again for the heads up on the sale.
