Mobil 1™ – Mercedes-AMG’s recommended oil

Banner with white Mercedes-AMG car driving performance

In the 1960s, two engineers, Hans Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher, began working on a racing engine that would become the start of Mercedes-AMG. During the next few decades, their custom-built engines excelled in motorsports, leading to a cooperation agreement with Daimler-Benz AG in 1990.

With power outputs from 367 hp to 630 hp, their innovative vehicles today require the lubricant technology of Mobil 1 synthetic motor oil. You can find the right oil for your Mercedes-AMG with our helpful tool.

As the recommended oil for Mercedes-AMG, Mobil 1 synthetic motor oil is also the factory fill for several vehicles since 1992. Current models include:

  • CLS 63
  • CLS 63 Shooting Brake
  • G 63
  • G 65
  • GLE 63
  • GLE 63 Coupé
  • GLS 63
  • S 65
  • S 65 Coupé
  • S 65 Cabriolet

A different engine needs a different oil

Guided by a "one man, one engine" philosophy, Mercedes-AMG’s meticulous approach to manufacturing is extraordinary. To this day, every Mercedes-AMG engine is built by hand – from start to finish – by one of about 50 AMG master engine builders.

Everything that Mercedes-AMG puts into their legendary vehicles also reflects the level of lubricant technology expertise they demand. But trusting their hand-assembled, high-performance engines to Mobil 1™ advanced full synthetic motor oil was an easy decision, and now – for more than 20 years – every Mercedes-AMG leaves the factory with Mobil 1 inside.
