Keeps your engine running like new

Mobil 1 advanced full synthetic motor oils deliver exceptional performance and protection for vehicles of all ages and for all driving conditions – normal to extreme. 

Mobil 1 oils keep engines running like new by helping:

  • Combat sludge and deposit buildup 
  • Reduce wear
  • Control oil breakdown

Mobil 1 motor oils offer a full range of temperature protection: For cold starts, the oil keeps flowing as low as -40 degrees Fahrenheit, and it can withstand high temperatures of up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit.

In fact, Mobil 1 is the World’s Leading Synthetic motor oil brand, recommended by more car builders and used by more NASCAR® teams than any other brand of motor oil. What’s more, Mobil 1 oils meet or exceed the toughest standards of Japanese, European and U.S. car builders.

Please reference our Mobil 1™ Product Guide for a quick look at specifications including zinc and phosphorus, as well as manufacturer approvals for Mobil 1 motor oils.

Rated 2 out of 5 by New formula does not meet specifications. This has been the only oil I have used in my BMW's for years. Now, there is a new formulation out that does not currently meet the BMW LL-01 specification. Is this going to be addressed? Soon? BTW, what does 'FS' stand for? I (and many others..) have stood by this oil for years. I have nothing but good things to say about this oil but if it will not meet BMW specifications then I will be forced to switch oils. I truly hope that I don't have to do this. May 1, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Low oil pressure in my Corvette. My 2007 Corvette with 60,000 miles maintains 28 psi at 70 mph 1750 rpm, oil temperature of 220 degrees. This hasn't changed since I've owned it for two years, considering changing to a higher weight or different oil manufacturer. Cold oil pressure can climb to 80 psi, when hot pressure falls off rapidly. Mobile 1 suggested to keep using 5-30, or maybe 0-30, but not 0-40. Why? I feel my oil concerns are due to thermal breakdown. The only way to increase oil pressure when hot is to use a higher weight oil, or a better grade oil that resist the effects of heat. Just my 2 cents worth... March 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for my Porsche 911 ! I use this oil as my summer oil and alternate between the 5w50 and the 0w40 for Summer and Winter respectively. Both are Porsche A40 approved oils and I like the extra protection for the summer months and when I go to the track. The winters are pretty mild here in NC so I will probably wind up just using the 5W50 year round once I deplete my current supply of 0w40. The 5W50 is hard to find and NAPA Auto Parts is about the only place I can get it on fairly short notice. I just call ahead and they get it in for me. I only wish this oil came in the convenient 5qt jugs here in the US. March 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by I have seen this stuff work!!! I drove for a limo company back in the 80's., and my boss used Mobil 1 in all of the vehicles, even his own personal vehicle. Back then even before the new extended performance oil he would change the oil every 15,000 miles. and never experienced an engine oil problem. I saw with my own eyes, these vehicles go 300-400,000 miles and still be running great when he sold them. i have used Mobil 1 products ever since. January 16, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Depend on Mobil 1 for my Jeep Have been completely satisfied with my jeep's performance using Mobil 1. It's a dependable product that provides the wear protection for my 1997 jeep. I run 33" tires on a 4 banger engine, it's a lot to push that less than perfect aerodynamic vehicle on the highways. But can depend on getting the best performance from this product. October 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Unparallelled product that is worthy of the price. I purchased Mobil 1 Advanced Full Synthetic motor oil as a first-time buyer to this product and it is top-notch because my vehicle drives excellent and shifts great and as result: I am a fan for life with Mobil1 full synthetic motor oil and I do recommend this product for luxury vehicles, high-mileage vehicles, vehicles burns a lot of oil and sports cars. October 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cadillac ATS 2.0 Turbo I have used Mobil 1 since birth in my Chevrolet Cruze 1.4 Turbo and Cadillac ATS. I drive a lot of miles. I like the confidence that Mobil 1 provides, especially concerning the oil life meter. Moreover, I drive at high speeds and this creates a lot of heat in turbocharged engines, especially in warmer climates. I am confident that the engineers have provided enough testing and adjustments to the standard formulation in order to offer the highest level of protection possible. I do not see any need for the extended performance formula. "Mobil 1 is what it is" and I believe if I really wanted to take the standard formula through 15k mile oil change intervals, it wouldn't let me down. September 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by If you drive Suburban/Tahoe use it If you own a Suburban or Tahoe use Mobil 1 5W-30 solely and your engine can go over 300,000 miles. Now driving my 12th Suburban and the last 3 used only Mobil 1 and the first 2 went 340,000 and 350,000 miles respectively and the engines still ran like new! Have 125,000 on current Suburban and still does not burn any oil between changes - 7500 miles and the technician smiles because the old oil looks as clean as the new oil! - and runs as smooth as the day I drove it off the show room floor. Every GM dealer carries Mobil 1, use it and you will be amazed at the result. September 6, 2015
