    tnx

    Re: What weight Mobile 1 ships with Porsche?

    just a tip. The day I picked up my S I also asked service for a couple of quarts of oil. I remembered from my last Porsche, they usually need some during break-in.
    The service dept. will probably give it to you on the house too.

    Re: What weight Mobile 1 ships with Porsche?

    that's almost a gallon of oil in the pic!

    That might work where you live, but here in Northern California, the dealers charge 9-10$ per bottle. I got a case at Kragen for 1/2 that cost/bottle.

    Let us know when you spot those Kragen coupons vtach88!

    Mike S,

    This is actually a good place to obfuscate on this thread, since this has to do with metric versus Imperial conversions (we Yankees stick with good ol' Imperial in everyday life ):

    You are correct that 4 liters is ALMOST a gallon, IF you are converting to an Imperial United Kingdom "standard" gallon, also true if converting to an Imperial United States "dry" gallon, BUT NOT if converting to an Imperial United States "liquid" gallon (used here for all liquids, not just oil but also beer ).

    1 liter = 0.2641721 US ("liquid") gallon; hence 4 liters of Mobil 1 oil = 1.0566884 gallons;
    1 liter = 0.2270207 US ("dry") gallon; 4 liters = 0.9080828 gallon;
    1 liter = 0.2199692 UK gallon; 4 liters = 0.8798768 gallon.

    In science in the US, we learn from grammar school all the conversions, and I like to rehash these calculations to remind me of these differences. It's enough to have to convert from metric to Imperial and vice versa, let alone knowing which "type" of gallon to which to convert. Does SA use the "UK" standard for gallons?

    Re: What weight Mobile 1 ships with Porsche?

    over here it's:

    gallons = litres
    miles = kilometers
    pounds = kilograms
    feet/yards = meters

    etc.
