With the exception of the Mazda rotary engine (Mazda does not recommend any synthetic oils), Mobil 1 will not void new‐car warranties where an American Petroleum Institute (API) certified oil is recommended. Mobil 1 meets or exceeds API and International Lubricant Standardization and Approval Committee (ILSAC) motor oil service requirements of all new‐car manufacturers, both import and domestic. If in doubt, always check your vehicle owner's manual or contact the vehicle manufacturer.

Mobil 1™ 0W‐20 Advanced Fuel Economy  meets or exceeds many new car warranty requirements where SAE 0W‐20 or 5W‐20 oil is recommended. Mobil 1™ 0W‐20  Advanced Fuel Economy provides the high temperature protection of 5W‐20 oils while offering improved fuel economy. As a result, many consumers can benefit from improved fuel economy while obtaining outstanding engine protection for their vehicle. Mobil 1™ 0W‐20 Advanced Fuel Economy  should only be used in vehicles designed to operate on either 0W‐20 or 5W‐20 motor oil.

If your car manufacturer recommends a SAE 5W‐20 ILSAC oil, we recommend either Mobil 1™ 5W‐20 or Mobil 1™ 0W‐20 Advanced Fuel Economy. Mobil 1™ 0W‐20 Advanced Fuel Economy will not void new‐car warranties where an SAE 5W‐20 oil is recommended. Mobil 1™  0W‐20 Advanced Fuel Economy can provide better fuel economy and better low‐temperature performance than higher viscosity oils.
