I think WM brand looks thinner than Mobile 1. Barely visible on the dip stick. Easy to drip off the dip stick..

I agree with Charles that its thinner or watery. have you notice all the walmart oil is leaking oil I can feel it when grabbing the quart of oil. My truck leaks a quart of oil every two weeks because of my cooler lines leaking, if I use walmart oil versus Mobil I need to fill it almost like week! Walmart oil seems to be thinner and no consistency.

A walmart worker 5 years ago scan one of the bottles and I think the scanner said that walmart was made from Exxon.

You do know that Mobil and Exxon are the same company. They use the different brands in different regions, but same company.
