How Mobil 1™ provides protection at high temperatures

A long drive. Blistering summer days. Stop-and-go traffic. Under conditions like these, your engine will get hot. This heat can cause conventional motor oil to oxidise, thicken and leave deposits, which can affect your engine’s performance. Mobil 1 synthetic motor oil provides outstanding high-temperature performance and is proven to protect at engine temperatures up to 260⁰C.

How Mobil 1™ protects your engine in cold weather


Your engine is vulnerable at start-up. That’s when it really needs the oil to keep flowing. Cold weather can cause motor oil to flow either too slowly or not at all. This can take a toll on your engine. That’s why choosing the right motor oil can make a big difference.

Mobil 1 synthetic motor oil flows at temperatures as low as -40⁰C so that your car gets the oil it needs immediately at start-up.

The advanced technology of Mobil 1 motor oil combines proprietary base stocks with a balanced additive system to provide protection in four dimensions – cold, heat, wear and sludge.
