Mobil 1™ – Corvette’s recommended oil

Race-proven science with Yellow Corvette on the road

Mobil 1™ advanced full synthetic motor oil has served as the factory fill for many Chevrolet Corvettes, including the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, and the recommended service fill for all Corvettes since 1993. As the Corvette evolved into the current world-class C7 sports car, the formulation of Mobil 1 motor oil advanced to meet the demands of these modern high-performance engines.

Mobil 1™ 5W-30 is the recommended service fill for many generations of Corvette, but for all C7 Corvettes we recommend upgrading to Mobil 1™ ESP Formula 0W-40. Please download our PDF for more information. You can also find the right oil for your Corvette with our helpful tool.

Today, Mobil 1 ESP Formula 0W-40 synthetic motor oil is the factory fill for all C7 Corvette models and can be used by most C7 Corvette owners on both the street and the track (2019 ZR1 owners are asked to use Mobil 1™ 15W-50 for track days).

Mobil 1 motor oils are designed at the molecular level and enhanced with a proprietary additive system to provide outstanding protection against wear, heat, cold weather and sludge buildup – helping to keep Corvette engines running like new.

Take a quick tour of the National Corvette Museum and hear “Father of Mobil 1” Bill Maxwell explain why Mobil 1™ synthetic motor oil can take the heat in Corvette’s “beast of an engine” – even under the most severe conditions – on or off the track.

To celebrate the long-term relationship between Chevrolet and ExxonMobil, a special video was shot for Corvette and Mobil 1™ synthetic motor oil fans. Find out how a Corvette’s roar is born at the GM Bowling Green Assembly Plant.

A winning history on the racetrack

Mobil 1 synthetics were General Motors’ first choice among engine lubricants when the manufacturer began developing the racing Corvette in 1996 under the stewardship of Doug Fehan, a former American racer turned program manager who has established himself as one of the most respected team principals in sports car racing. World Sports Car and Trans-Am titles were the forerunners to his current unrivaled winning streak with Corvette Racing. During the subsequent decade of development, the Corvette Racing team has continued to use Mobil 1 oils and has reached the winner’s circle more than 90 times worldwide. Extensive testing and post-race analysis reveal minimal component wear, improved engine reliability and performance.

Corvette Racing has relied on Mobil 1™ lubricant technology expertise for more than 20 years – and this legendary partnership has a record that speaks for itself. See the results from the racetrack.
