  • How often should the oil filter be changed when using Mobil 1™ Annual Protection motor oil?

    We recommend that you change your oil filter at the same time you change your oil, and that you use an oil filter that offers protection for your intended oil change interval. Mobil 1™ Extended Performance oil filters provide guaranteed* protection for one year or 20,000 miles, whichever comes first. Therefore, these long-life performance oil filters are an excellent choice when using Mobil 1™ Annual Protection motor oil, which also offers guaranteed* protection for one year or 20,000 miles, whichever comes first.

    *Please follow the recommendations in your owner's manual while your car is under warranty.
