Putting our miles where our mouth is
Thanks to the breakthrough lubricant technology of Mobil 1™ Annual Protection motor oil, your engine is protected for 20,000 miles between oil changes, guaranteed.* Don’t believe us? We’re demonstrating it on a 20,000-mile grand odyssey across the country – on one oil change.
From our Research and Engineering Center in New Jersey to Indianapolis Motor Speedway (and 46 other states in between), our motor oil will be put to the test in a Chevy Equinox SUV and a Ford Fusion sedan. These vehicles will traverse mountains and deserts, navigate city blocks, ramble down highways, experience cool weather and face high heat over the course of three months.

Here's how it works
Every 5,000 miles, the vehicles will make a pit stop to get their oil tested. Our comprehensive lubricant analysis will test the performance of used Mobil 1 Annual Protection samples across these three categories:
Extended oil life
Mobil 1 Annual Protection resists breakdown and extends oil life up to 20,000 miles.*
Test measurement: oxidation and viscosity control.
Our cutting-edge formulation maximizes wear protection to keep your engine running like new.
Test measurement: metal deposits.
This innovative synthetic motor oil helps prevent the buildup of harmful residue.
Test measurement: total contaminant deposits.
Then it’s back on the road. At the end of the 20,000-mile trip, each vehicle’s engine will be inspected for wear. Stay tuned as results roll in throughout the summer!
*Or one year, whichever comes first.
