What years did MOBIL use the blue oil cans with the red Pegasus?

The few I can think of with any "age" are the Delvac Oil cans with lower 25% dark blue the rest white or the Mobil Permazone (glycol) with the same colors - both post WW2 'til 1961/2.
What you may be thinking of are the newer Mobiloil cans that are almost 60% blue (lower half) and the logo with the red O. These cans/logo came out in and around 1966.

Might add that the Lubrite cans were all blue with the red Peggie - someone else may want to comment on the years of availability.

Here are a few Lubrite cans from google. The ones with Socony vacuum text are from late 40s-1955. the other ones with the simpler font (sans serif) are from post -55 and may be into the 60s..
If it is these cans you mean - of not, post a picture :-)
