  • Safety Data Sheets (SDS)
  • Product Data Sheets (PDS)

Our Mobil SHC Pegasus™ Series gas engine oils provide maximum protection for high-output, low-emission four-cycle gas engines while also helping to increase fuel efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions. They are formulated for heavily loaded valve train components, pistons, liners, bearings and gear trains.

Proven to increase efficiency up to 1.5 percent*, these lubricants can also:

  • Reduce the formation of carbon and varnish deposits
  • Minimize oil consumption
  • Maintain engine cleanliness during extended drain intervals
  • Lower operating and maintenance costs

  • gauge

    Formulated to potentially help limit fuel consumption

  • gears

    Promotes engine efficiency and reliability by helping control deposits in combustion chamber and piston ring zone

  • fuel efficiency

    Up to 1.5% increase in fuel efficiency compared to standard natural gas engine oils*

  • runtime

    Helps maximize engine availability through long drain intervals — more than 50,000 hours documented

Mobil SHC Pegasus offers the following features and potential benefits:

Features Advantages and Potential Benefits
Reduced Fuel Consumption

Patented technology proven to provide up to 1.5% reduction in fuel consumption compared to standard natural gas engine oils*

Extended Oil Life

Improves oil drain interval; reduces number of oil changes, fewer oil purchases, creates less waste oil and labor to help lower operating costs and increase engine availability Increased engine availability enables higher productivity

Keep Clean Performance

Helps control deposits in combustion chamber and piston ring zone to maximize engine efficiency and reliability Helps control deposits in heat exchangers to maximize heat production

Low Oil Consumption

Low oil volatility helps minimize engine and exhaust system deposits to help extend catalytic converter life and extend intervals between heat exchanger cleanings Helps reduce make up oil additions and lubricant purchases

High Level of Wear Protection

Helps control wear on critical engine components  Maintains engine reliability and performance



Mobil SHC Pegasus is designed for use in:

  • Turbocharged, naturally aspirated, medium to high speed four-cycle engines requiring a low ash oil
  • Lean-burn and stoichiometric four-cycle engines operating under high load, high temperature conditions
  • High-speed four-cycle gas engines used in cogeneration applications
  • Natural gas fueled engines equipped with catalytic converters
  • Gas engines operating on fuel that contains low levels of H2S. Consult OEM for specific fuel gas and  oil drain interval recommendations
