Ultra-low viscosity Mobil 1™ motor oil
Asian automakers in 2018 began recommending 0W-16 viscosity oil in certain makes and models. Mobil 1™ 0W-16 Advanced Fuel Economy ultra-low viscosity motor oil was developed to help improve fuel economy and increase engine efficiency in these specific modern engines.
Recommended viscosity for select gasoline and hybrid engines
Modern engines need advanced lubricant technology, especially as automakers work hard to deliver improved fuel economy without sacrificing wear protection. Mobil 1™ 0W-16 Advanced Fuel Economy is an ultra-low viscosity, advanced full synthetic formulation that was developed to help improve engine efficiency and provide outstanding wear protection.
Honda and Toyota have designed certain gas and hybrid engines to run on 0W-16 motor oil, which is currently the lowest viscosity grade available in the U.S. market. Those makes and models* include:
- 2018 Honda Fit EX, EX-L and LX 4-Cylinder 1.5L (i-VTEC)
- 2018 Honda Fit Sport 4-Cylinder 1.5L (i-VTEC)
- 2019 Honda Fit EX, EX-L, LX and Sport 4-Cylinder 1.5 (i-VTEC)
- 2019 Toyota RAV4 Adventure 4-Cylinder 2.5
- 2019 Lexus UX200 Base, F Sport and Luxury 4-Cylinder 2.0
- 2019 Lexus UX250h Base, F Sport and Luxury 4-Cylinder 2.0
- 2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid SE, LE and XLE 4-Cylinder 2.5L
- 2018 Toyota Camry L, LE, SE, XLE and XSE 4-Cylinder 2.5L
- 2019 Toyota Avalon Hybrid Limited, XLE and XSE 4-Cylinder 2.5
- 2019 Toyota Camry Hybrid LE and SE 4-Cylinder 2.5
- 2019 Toyota Camry L, LE, SE, XLE and XSE 4-Cylinder 2.5
- 2019 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid LE, Limited, XLE and XSE 4-Cylinder 2.5
- 2019 Toyota RAV4 LE, Limited, XLE and XLE Premium 4-Cylinder 2.5
*Viscosity recommendations as of September 2019 compiled from vehicle manufacturer specifications arederived from Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association and MOTOR Information Systems databases.
Certain new technology engines offered by Honda and Toyota are designed to operate on ultra-low viscosity oils. Full synthetic Mobil 1 0W-16 Advanced Fuel Economy flows faster at start up than higher viscosity oils to promote engine efficiency and rapid engine protection.
