Mobil Reformulates
Mobil 1 is updating its formula and simplifying its packaging. As fans of all things high tech, we thought we'd pass along what the company has going on.

According to an in-depth ExxonMobil press release, Mobil 1 uses a combination of high-performance synthetic fluids, including polyalphaolefins (PAO) and carefully selected proprietary additive packages, plus the latest innovation in lubricant technology-the proprietary SuperSyn anti-wear system. This combination of high-performance components has created motor oil that delivers an extremely powerful extra line of defense against engine wear.

"Instead of breaking down during extreme high-stress, high-temperature conditions, SuperSyn actually excels under these conditions," says Tom Olszewski, group technical leader at ExxonMobil Lubricants & Specialties Co.

Mobil 1 With Supersyn Benefits
" Outstanding wear protection, even under the most extreme conditions
" High-temperature durability, protecting engines at temperatures up to 400 degrees F
" Enhanced performance for cold weather driving.Mobil 1 is capable at flowing at extremely low temperatures when conventional oils are nearly solid
" Excellent engine cleanliness, with better sludge protection and reduced piston deposits
" Greater fuel economy benefits with Mobil 10W-30
" Ideal for stop-and-go driving, high-tech imported engines, turbocharger engines, idling for extended periods and driving in dusty conditions
