On any extended drive or under the stress of stop-and-go traffic, your engine will get hot. This heat can cause conventional motor oil to oxidize, thicken and leave deposits, which can affect your engine’s performance.
While conventional oils are designed to protect during normal conditions, Mobil 1™ synthetic motor oil provides outstanding high-temperature protection and is proven to protect at engine temperatures up to 500°F. In fact, Mobil 1 provides performance superior to our other full synthetic and conventional oils when tested for high-temperature deposit formation, as seen below.
Honda Proprietary High-Temperature Deposit Test
Mobil 1 synthetic oil showed most resistance to deposit formation in high-temperature turbochargers
High-Temperature Deposit Test
The motor oil industry uses a proprietary Honda high-temperature deposit test to measure an oil’s resistance to deposit formation in high-temperature turbochargers. In this severe-service, high-temperature deposit test, Mobil 1 5W-30 advanced full synthetic oil exhibited superior performance as compared to a competitive full synthetic formulation and our conventional motor oil (which met industry-standard GF-5/API SN requirements).
Turbochargers Withstand High Heat
Today’s turbocharger-equipped engines operate under extremely high temperatures. See how Mobil 1 synthetic motor oil performs in our lab-replicating highway-to-racetrack conditions with temperatures climbing up to 1600°F (900°C). Watch what happens.
Las Vegas Taxi Field Test
To prove the protection of Mobil 1 Extended Performance in some of the toughest conditions, we used Las Vegas taxis and pushed their engines to the limit, only changing the oil every 15,000 miles. See the results here.
