Toyota motor oil - Mobil 1™
Mobil 1 motor oils for Toyota
A full range of Mobil 1 motor oils are suitable for Toyota vehicles. We offer 0W-16, 0W-20, 5W-20 and 5W-30 motor oils that meet many of Toyota’s viscosity and specification requirements. Modern engines, which are smaller and have tighter clearances, are being designed to run on 0W-20 and 0W-16 oils. These types of low viscosity and ultra-low viscosity oils flow faster at startup than higher viscosity oils, providing rapid engine protection, helping to increase engine efficiency and improving fuel economy.†
You can find Mobil 1 motor oils specially formulated for truck and SUV engines, turbocharged engines, high mileage engines and hybrid vehicles. From the racetrack to the road, Mobil 1 motor oils are designed, tested and proven to deliver outstanding performance and protection for your Toyota engine.
*Total engine miles. Tested in vehicles primarily in highway driving conditions with respective product recommended oil change intervals.
†Potential fuel economy improvement obtained by switching from higher viscosity oils to a lower viscosity grade. Actual savings are dependent upon vehicle/engine type, outside temperature, driving conditions and your current engine oil viscosity.
Race-proven performance and protection
The Mobil 1 motor oil brand, as an official technology partner of Toyota Racing Development (TRD), provides TRD with a competitive advantage in NASCAR®. The lessons learned from the extreme conditions encountered in competitive racing help ExxonMobil engineers develop the advanced Mobil 1 products available for your daily driver.
ExxonMobil has dedicated engineers that work with TRD to test and prove lubricant performance under the extreme conditions of racing. This partnership has led to tangible on-track success in the form of engine efficiency, fast lap times and multiple NASCAR championships.
Mobil 1 will not void new-car warranties where an American Petroleum Institute (API) certified oil is recommended. The exception is the Mazda rotary engine (Mazda does not recommend any synthetic oils). Always consult your owner’s manual.
High mileage Toyota vehicles (e.g., vehicles with more than 75,000 miles) can benefit from high mileage oils specifically formulated to address emerging potential problems, such as engine oil consumption and leaks, engine oil sludge, and general engine wear and tear. But the use of a high mileage oil is not a requirement.
Some high mileage oils, such as Mobil 1™ Extended Performance High Mileage, Mobil 1™ High Mileage and Mobil Super™ High Mileage, contain engine oil additives and conditioners that help to combat engine oil consumption and leaks, engine oil sludge, and general engine wear and tear.
No, Toyota hybrid vehicles do not require different motor oil than non-hybrid vehicles, but the efficiencies gained by hybrid vehicle’s systems can be more demanding on motor oil.
ExxonMobil engineers regularly perform extensive testing in support of hybrids. A grueling, non-stop 50,000-mile hybrid test simulating city and highway driving showed that Mobil 1™ 0W-20 and Mobil 1™ 5W-30 demonstrated excellent performance regardless of hybrid type, and inspection of the hybrid engines revealed that Mobil 1 motor oil provided excellent protection against deposit, sludge and wear.
Every hybrid powertrain configuration (e.g., series, parallel, series-parallel) that ExxonMobil engineers test can benefit from the overall lubrication and wear protection of Mobil 1™ technology. Mobil 1™ advanced full synthetic motor oil provides exceptional performance and protection for all hybrids.
Mobil 1 Advanced Fuel Economy is available in 0W-16, 0W-20 and 0W-30 formulations. Mobil 1™ Advanced Fuel Economy 0W-16 is recommended by ExxonMobil for select Honda and Toyota engines requiring a 0W-16 viscosity oil. ExxonMobil recommends Mobil 1™ Advanced Fuel Economy 0W-20 for 5W-20 applications and Mobil 1™ Advanced Fuel Economy 0W-30 for 5W-30 and 10W-30 applications.
Low viscosity oils, such as Mobil 1™ Advanced Fuel Economy, flow faster at startup and more easily through the oil pump, requiring less energy to move the oil to critical engine parts. Low viscosity oils also reduce friction at points of contact within the engine. These characteristics help increase engine efficiency and, therefore, fuel economy compared to the use of higher viscosity grade oils.
Yes. When Exxon Mobil engineers wanted to test the high mileage performance and overall wear protection of Mobil 1 motor oil on a common sedan, they chose one of the most popular models around, a 2015 Toyota Camry, one of the best-selling cars in America, according to Car and Driver.
All of the testing for "The 500,000-Mile Challenge" took place at the ExxonMobil Research and Engineering facility in New Jersey. The Camry was run at highway speeds for 12 months, and oil changes were performed every 10,000 miles with Mobil 1 motor oil. Engine performance was monitored from mile one to mile 500,000.
After operating for 500,000 miles, the Camry’s engine was carefully removed, disassembled and studied. ExxonMobil engineers Nikki Brown and Ben Eirich visually examined the internal components, focusing on determining the level of wear and deposits. Few signs were found.
High mileage engines sometimes experience oil consumption, but the Camry’s engine didn’t burn any oil throughout the entire test. And many of the parts from the Camry’s engine still met manufacturer tolerances for brand new parts, proving the advanced wear protection of Mobil 1 motor oil.
In 2007, TRD needed a race-proven motor oil when they entered the big leagues of stock car racing. The Mobil 1™ team’s winning history in NASCAR® showed that they could offer TRD a competitive advantage –the unique formulation of Mobil 1 motor oil.
In 2010, TRD’s first-class Mobil 1 technology partnership quickly got them up to speed. TRD experienced unprecedented success with Mobil 1 advanced full synthetic motor oil supporting its high-performance V-8 engines; Mobil 1 motor oil helped maximize engine efficiency and improve lap times for the Generation-6 Toyota Camry. More pole positions led to more race wins, culminating in 2015 with TRD’s first NASCAR Cup Series championship.
