Question:
Does Teflon from Oil Filters Impact Oil Performance
Some brands of oil filters have Teflon (PTFE) in the filter element. The Teflon is supposed to be dispersed during operation. Are Teflon-containing filters compatible with Mobil 1 and Mobil synthetic blends?
-- Don Shaulis, Sacramento, CA
Answer:
All Mobil 1 products are fully formulated oils and don't require supplemental additives of any kind, including Teflon. However, if you have a strong desire to use a Teflon-containing filter, we don't see any problem in using Mobil 1 as your motor oil.
