Mobil 1™ motor oil testing – meeting or exceeding industry specifications
Mobil 1 outperforms in severe service motor oil tests
Mobil 1 synthetic motor oil goes through our own rigorous testing before it leaves our labs. Motor oils also go through independent industry testing (called API in the U.S., ACEA in Europe), as well as many demanding Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) tests, to ensure that the motor oil you buy does what it claims to do.
In more than 18 Industry Performance Standard tests that check for engine cleanliness, wear protection, high- and low-temperature protection, emission system protection and fuel economy, Mobil 1 synthetic oils (specific products and viscosities) meet or exceed the latest requirements.
Mobil 1 synthetic motor oil qualifies for the highest number of the latest industry motor oil specifications – including International Lubricant Standardization and Approval Committee (ILSAC) GF-5 and European Automobile Manufacturer’s Association (ACEA) in key performance areas compared with conventional synthetic oils.
