5W-30 oil is the lead viscosity recommendation by automakers over the past four decades for use in many vehicle types - passenger cars, SUVs, light vans and trucks – including those with high-performance turbo-charged and supercharged engines.
We offer a wide selection of Mobil™ 5W-30 viscosity motor oils, including products designed for high mileage vehicles, trucks and SUVs, and for those of you looking for an extended drain motor oil.
Many of our 5W-30 oil carry the dexos®1 approval specified for General Motors vehicles.
*The dexos® specification and trademark are exclusive to General Motors, LLC.
What do the numbers in 5W-30 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.
