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 5 out of 5 by from I use Mobil 1......Period....And Here's Why... I've had my 1998 Ford F150 with a 4.6L SOHC V-8 since new. I run only Mobil 1 5w30. Drove it 266,000 miles until it blew a head gasket. Where we tore it apart - absolutely NO WEAR - ZERO. Clean inside and no wear. Cylinder walls still had a crosshatch pattern. Crank and cam journals were void of wear and we went back with standard sized bearings. I can provide images of this engine when it was torn down. Mobil 1 for life.....FOR LIFE. Engine is now rebuilt and ready to go back in my truck. Had I taken better care of my cooling system it would never have blown the head gasket. It would have gone way beyond 300,000 miles WITHOUT A REBUILD on Mobil 1.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More power, mileage, engine life, used since 1966 This oil does not burn until almost 450 degrees F. Still lubricating when others burn. My Honda 750F with Mobil1 was several bike lengths ahead of friends Honda 750 after changing to Mobil 1. Before they were pretty even. When I sold the bike 21 years later valves still did NOT need adjusting. Looked like new inside cylinder head. Smokey Unick dyno'd Nascar 355 Chevy, went from 303 to 333 hp on the dyno! Just by changing the oil! My Cadillac Northstar 300 hp still is clean inside, gets 30 mpg highway, has 80,000 miles using Mobil1 exclusively. 1978 VW Scirocco engine looked like new inside at 180,000 miles, good compression, was using one quart of oil every 1,500 miles.
