Last night I go to change the oil in my 3520. Drain old, spin on a new JD filter, and dumb in a jug of Mobile 1 oil (4 qts). Open up jug number 2, and for whatever reason, the color of it catches my eye. It has a red hue to it. Every other time I have used this stuff, it had a nice golden tan color, and this one is red. I stop what I am doing and phone Mobile and of course no one is available after hours, and I didnt get a chance today to call back.
Anyone ever experience this? I have no problem eating the costs if the oil is bad or mislabeled or something, but now have lost confidence in what I am actually buying. Now, for full disclosure, while both sealed and same brand/weight/ect, the labeling was slightly different, so maybe different bottlers or formulations? Then again, even if so, kind of a lousy deal no real notice of such a change?
I plan to call monday to see what they say, but am leaning towards chucking the new oil and filter and choosing another brand. Opinions?
