Engineered to help maintain the efficiency of emission systems in diesel- and gasoline-powered automobiles

Mobil 1 ESP advanced full synthetic motor oils are made with a proprietary blend of leading-edge components. They are designed to help deliver outstanding performance and protection in conjunction with potential fuel economy benefits.

Mobil 1 ESP oils help prolong the life and maintain the efficiency of emission systems in both diesel- and gasoline-powered automobiles. They are formulated to be fully compatible with passenger car diesels that have the latest diesel particulate filters (DPFs) and gasoline catalytic converters (CATs).

Of the product lineup, Mobil 1™ ESP X1 0W-30, Mobil 1™ ESP 5W-30 and Mobil 1™ ESP Formula 5W-30 oils meet or exceed the requirements of many leading industry and car manufacturers’ standards required for newer modern diesel- and gasoline-powered passenger car engines.

Of the product lineup, Mobil 1™ ESP Formula 0W-40 is the first and only dexos2™-approved motor oil developed specifically for Chevrolet Corvettes. Although Mobil 1™ 5W-30 motor oil is still recommended for many generations of Corvette, ExxonMobil recommends upgrading to Mobil 1 ESP Formula 0W-40 to help reduce oil consumption and provide maximum performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Honda DTIS Civic I drive a 2014 Honda DTIS Civic diesel, fitted with an exhaust particulate filter. I arrived at the Honda dealer for the first service with a supply of Mobil 1 5W30 ESP, being the recommended oil from the Mobil 1 range. I chose Mobil 1 for two reasons, Mobil product has high quality assurance standards, I was personally involved in ensuring product quality with Mobil Exxon in Australia. The 1.6 litre Honda turbocharged engine produces a remarkable amount of torque and is incredibly fuel efficient. Confidently, I can choose Mobil 1 to preserve the efficency and reliablity of this motor, as do leading car manufacturers in recommending Mobil 1

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used in my Ram 1500 EcoDiesel 3.0 litre Local dealership advised Penzoil European formula. Cost at dealership is $17.00+ per litre, at $10 litres required. Purchased Mobil 1 ESP 5W-30 for just under $9.00/litre, which meets or exceeds requirements for truck. Continue to enjoy 29MPG average on highway, and 24MPG in city.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mercedes Benz diesel recommended My Mercedes Benz Sprinter (Winnebago ERA motorhome) has a diesel engine and Mobil 1 ESP X1 0w-30 is one of the few motor oils they recommend that allow for slightly extended change intervals. However, I had to order it from a local auto parts store and it is only available in 1 quart bottles. My vehicle requires over 14 quarts. It would certainly make life easier, and probably cheaper, if I could get it in 5 quart jugs.
