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.

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). Mobil 1 ESP oils help deliver outstanding performance and protection.

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.

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 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.
