Unique Formula

The advanced full synthetic formula of this oil includes a unique blend of high-performance synthetic base fortified with special additives that make it extremely effective at protecting your engine from friction, temperature as well as deposit formation. This is one of the factors that makes Mobil 1 one of the most trusted brands in the engine oil market.

High Fuel Economy

This product is not only super-efficient at optimising your engine’s performance and health, it is also extremely cost-effective, giving you outstanding value for your money between oil changes, and maximum fuel economy.

Users of Mobil 1 0W-20 synthetic oil have noted a marked improvement in the mileage of their vehicles, by at least 2 percent, and even more when the vehicle type, weather and driving conditions are suitable.

Outstanding Thermal And Oxidation Stability

Mobil 1 0w-20 full synthetic oil has low viscosity, giving it great control over breakdown under high temperatures, ensuring each and every part of your engine is lubricated, and protected from friction. At the same time, the unique formula reduces potential deposits and sludge build-up which occur as a result of not just combustion, but also humidity.

Compatible With Varying Temperatures

This product also offers your engine some great protection against varying temperature conditions, be it high engine temperatures, or cold weather. It has some excellent features like superior low-temperature compatibility, resistance to high heat and oxidation, and quick cold-weather starting for ultra-fast protection.

Together, these features minimise any potential damage to your car’s engine - be it corrosive, acidic deposits because of oil breakdown, friction between your engine’s moving parts due to seizing in cold weather, or oxidation caused by humidity when your car is left idle over a long duration of time.

Guaranteed Quality

Like all engine oils manufactured by Mobil 1, this product is also compliant with quality standards set by the American Petroleum Institute (API). In addition, it also meets and exceeds the GF-5 quality standards set by ILSAC, which means it not only meets, but also goes beyond industry standards.

What Others Say

Regular users of the Mobil 1 0W-20 synthetic oil have nothing but praise for this product, and with good reason to do so. The most common positive features across reviews are about improved fuel economy, with thousands of users saying that their car’s mileage improved significantly after switching and sticking to this oil.

Users also love the protection that this oil offers their engine, some going so far as to say that their car’s engine showed such little sign of wear that its parts were mistaken as newly-replaced.

In addition, the one thing that users, especially those driving in extremely cold weather such as in the mountains, seem to love about this oil is how quickly it flows through the engine once the car is started. This, in contrast with other synthetic oils, causes significantly less pressure and friction within your engine’s parts.

If you thought the price of this oil was a concern, you might want to know that there are actually users who have switched from more expensive, premium oils to Mobil 1, to find that it gets them the same benefits, at a much lower price.

Most users recommend doing a quick compatibility check on Mobil 1’s website, to make sure the oil you’re purchasing is indeed suited to your vehicle.

The Verdict

After all, for as much as a little over $25, you’re getting superior engine protection that is at par with some of the best, premium engine oil brands out there. Add to this the fact that you’ll be saving on maintenance and repairs between oil change intervals, as well as gaining some great mileage on your car.
