Is There a Mobil 1 for Home Generators?
My home generator needs "a high quality detergent oil classified for service SJ or SH." Does Mobil 1 qualify?

It meets or exceeds the requirements of API SJ and SH. Many industrial operations use Mobil 1 motor oil in standby generators because they know Mobil 1 will deliver when they need them to start up
