Advantages of a Mobil 1 Oil Change

January 27, 2012

Mobil 1 is widely considered one of the premier oil brands, and a Mobil 1 oil change is a great way to keep your car running smoothly. It is the standard factory oil for many high performance and luxury vehicles including all Aston Martin, Porsche, Bentley and Cadillac vehicles, as well as the Mercedes-Benz AMG and SLR lines, and the Chevrolet Corvette. Mobil offers only synthetic motor oils.

While getting a Mobil 1 oil change may seem unnecessary to consumers who do not drive a high performance vehicle, this is not necessarily the case. While Mobil 1 is more expensive than many competitors, it does offer certain advantages. While many companies recommend that you change your oil every 3000 miles, Mobil offers many products that allow for extended intervals between changes. For example, Mobil Extended Performance guarantees the performance of critical engine parts for up to 15000 miles. So while the oil itself may cost more, in the long run it could very well be less expensive to use a Mobil product due to the decreased frequency of oil changes. Additionally, using a higher quality motor oil such as Mobil can help extend the longevity of your vehicle's engine.

Another appealing aspect of using Mobil products is the Mobil guarantee, which is more extensive than the limited warranties offered by most oil companies. The specific details of this guarantee can be found at

Mobil 1 Express Lube centers specialize in Mobil products and will be able to help you determine the right oil for your vehicle. Mobil oil products are also widely available at auto parts stores, and at most non-Mobil oil change centers that don't have exclusive contracts with other oil companies.
