    Had a hard time finding Mobil 15W50 oil for my Toro ZTR Hydro pumps. Dealer does not have it. wal-mart dos not stock it. Auto parts store I use to get it from no longer stocks it. Found it a K-mart but was on the clearance rack.
    Is Mobil in the process of discontinuing it, if so, what do you use in place of 15W50?

    I have always had luck finding it at NAPA.

    I hope its not being discontinued. I know that the price of it has almost doubled in the last year. We are now paying close to $10 a quart in Tampa.
    Some stores may not want to stock it because the price markups are getting too slim.
    I would think any good synthetic 15w50 would do in a pinch...

    I bought two quarts yesterday at NAPA, about $6.16/qt, 15W-50, Mobil 1 synthetic. They had lots of bottles on the shelf.

    I use it as hydro fluid in my Exmark Viking.

    Thanks, I will keep NAPA on my list.
    Around here, a short time ago, even the Quick stop marts use to stock it.
