20K Road Trip – 20,000 miles. 48 states. 1 oil change.

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? That’s okay. We proved its performance during a 20,000-mile road trip – on one oil change.



Putting our miles where our mouth is
From our research facility in New Jersey to Indianapolis Motor Speedway (and 46 states in between), our ultimate motor oil was put to the test in two used vehicles: a Chevrolet Equinox SUV and a Ford Fusion sedan. Both vehicles traversed mountains, deserts, city blocks and highways over the course of three months, experiencing temperatures as high as 122 degrees Fahrenheit and as low as 50 degrees Fahrenheit.

Measuring oil performance
Every 5,000 miles, the vehicles made pit stops to get their oil tested. Our comprehensive lubricant analysis tested the performance of used Mobil 1 Annual Protection samples across these three categories:
