For road and track use, consider Mobil 1™ motor oils  in 15W-50 or 0W-40 viscosities.

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.

Features and benefits

Offer boosted levels of anti-wear protection – well beyond those of ordinary automotive oils – that can

  • Help protect engines even during grueling racing applications
  • Help maximize power output by reducing internal friction

Reduce internal friction, which helps maximize power output.

Deliver outstanding shear stability and a robust additive package that can

  • Help reduce oil breakdown
  • Help to extend engine life, even under some of the most extreme conditions

Provide faster flow to critical engine parts at low temperatures, compared with conventional racing oils and higher-viscosity synthetic motor oils.

Help deliver exceptional high-temperature protection, even at temperatures in excess of 400°F (204°C).
