The importance of lubricant
The most important factor in engine performance is good lubrication and appropriate protection to ensure that your engine is able to run smoothly and at maximum efficiency. Mobil lubricants are designed to offer superior engine protection and enable your engine to perform as if new even in tough environments.For driving at a constant speed
On highways: Driving conditions conducive to lubricant performance within a suitable temperature range prevent the accumulation of fuel and water.
At high speed: Fast acceleration and high speed may increase the temperature and reduce the viscosity of the lubricant, so your engine is more likely to suffer from wear. Lubricants designed to operate under high temperatures effectively protect engines, extend engine life and maintain engine performance.In the city:
Stop/start driving: The temperature of the lubricant may not be sufficient, resulting in an accumulation of water and fuel due to excessive engine idling. This causes corrosion and a build up of lubricant residue inside the engine.
In traffic: Getting stuck in a traffic jam after driving at high speed over a certain period of time may result in temperature stress on your engine, causing it to run at a high temperature.Environment
Cold conditions: Lubricant becomes denser at low temperatures, reducing supply efficiency and extending the time it takes to flow to essential engine components to provide lubrication and protection.
Hot conditions: High temperature environments may make it more difficult for your engine to cool down. The ability of lubricants not designed for high temperatures to protect your engine parts may be reduced.
Wet conditions: Driving in moist and damp conditions may cause an accumulation of moisture and acid in the lubricant. This damages metal parts and shortens the product life of the lubricant.
Dust and sand: Dust and sand are major issues for engines and may cause contamination of lubricants, increasing wear in moving parts.Engine technology
Direct injection diesel engines: Soot may remain in the lubricant and accumulate, resulting in blockages and causing metal parts to wear faster.
Turbo charge: Using low quality lubricants may result in carbon residue at the turbo charge, which is a major cause of issues with the turbo charge system.
Fuel quality: Low quality fuel ingredients may cause contamination and result in a deterioration of the lubricant, causing lubricant impurities and residue.
Lubricants used for longer than recommended: Many car owners fail to change their engine oil according to the manufacturer's recommendations. Higher quality lubricants are able to maintain an effective level of lubrication for longer and enable your engine to run smoothly.High performance operations
Overload: High workloads cause engine stress and require a better quality lubricant for reliable protection.
Racing: Sudden acceleration and very high speeds result in a particularly high workload on the engine. High quality lubricants designed for these conditions are required to protect your engine and ensure it runs smoothly.
