Turbochargers are no longer just reserved for sports cars. By 2021, turbocharged engines could represent 38 percent of all new vehicles sold in the U.S., according to IHS Automotive. That means your next car - whether it's a sedan or a light-duty truck - might have a turbocharger under the hood. Mobil technology strives to make Mobil compatible for modern engines.

Fuel economy and emissions standards have changed how today's engines are designed. Automakers must now focus on improving efficiency while satisfying consumers' demand for power. A variety of modern engines are delivering on both fronts with the help of complex engineering systems and advanced lubricant technology. That's why Mobil 1 engine oil is designed, tested and proven to deliver outstanding performance and protection – no matter what's under your hood. This is just another answer to “why use Mobil engine oils?”
