A growing list of automakers recommend 0W-20 low viscosity oils for their vehicles in an effort to optimize fuel economy. Likewise, the Mobil 1™, Mobil™ and Mobil Super™ lineup of 0W-20 oils has expanded to include choices for high mileage vehicles, trucks and SUVs, and coverage for those of you interested in extended drain oils.
0W-20 motor oils can also be used where 5W-20 is recommended. The low‐viscosity, advanced full synthetic formulation of Mobil 1 0W-20 oils can help to increase engine efficiency and improve fuel economy versus higher viscosity oils.
Many of our 0W-20 oils carry the dexos®1 approval* specified for General Motors vehicles.
Mobil 1™ ESP X2 0W-20 carries the dexosD™ approval for diesel engines.
*The dexos® specification and trademark are exclusive to General Motors, LLC.
What do the numbers in 0W-20 mean? The numbers refer to the weight and thickness, or viscosity, of the oil. Motor oil gets thicker when it’s cold and thinner when it heats up. The first number indicates the viscosity of the oil at a cold temperature, and the second number indicates the viscosity at operating temperatures.
