Mobil 1™ – high-temperature motor oil protection

A long drive. Blistering summer days. Stop-and-go traffic. Under conditions like these, 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. Mobil 1 advanced synthetic motor oil provides outstanding high-temperature performance and is proven to protect at engine temperatures up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit.

Las Vegas taxis put Mobil 1 to the test
To prove the protection of Mobil 1™ Extended Performance in some of the toughest conditions, we tested with Las Vegas taxis and pushed their engines to the limit, 24 hours a day, in extreme temperatures and stop-and-go traffic. Check out the test and inspection results.

Mobil 1 resists high-temperature deposits
The motor oil industry uses the Honda Hot Tube test, which is a proprietary Honda high-temperature deposit test that measures an oil’s resistance to deposit formation in turbochargers. In the severe-service test with turbochargers, Mobil 1™ 5W-30 advanced full synthetic oil displayed superior protection compared to a competitive full synthetic oil as well as our own conventional oil (which met industry-standard GF-5/API SN requirements).

Mobil 1 helps turbochargers withstand high heat
Today’s turbocharger-equipped engines operate under extremely high temperatures. See how Mobil 1 advanced synthetic motor oil performs in our lab, where we can replicate extreme operating conditions and create turbo temperatures that exceed 1,600°F. Watch what happens.
