Meeting or exceeding
industry specifications

Mobil 1™ synthetic motor oil goes through our own rigorous testing before it leaves our labs. It also goes through independent industry testing (called API in the U.S., ACEA in Europe), as well as many rigorous Original Engine Manufacturer (OEM) tests, to ensure you’re buying motor oil that does what it claims to do.

Of more than 18 different Industry Performance Standard tests checking for engine cleanliness, wear protection, emission system protection, high temperature protection and low temperature protection, and fuel economy, Mobil 1 synthetic (specific products and viscosities) meets or exceeds the latest requirements.

Industry Specification Chart

Mobil 1 synthetic motor oil qualifies for the highest number of the latest industry specifications — including ILSAC (International Lubricant Standardization and Approval Committee) GF-5 and ACEA (European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association) — in key performance areas compared with conventional synthetic oils.
