Mobil 1 ESP Formula 5W30 helps Keep Cars with Diesel Engines 'Running Like New'

As the world’s leading synthetic motor oil brand, Mobil 1 has continually set the benchmark for lubrication excellence.

Today, drivers around the world know they can rely on Mobil 1 oils to deliver exceptional, long-lasting engine protection for all types of vehicles.

For owners of diesel-powered automobiles, Mobil 1 ESP Formula 5W-30 (Emission System Protection) represents an ideal lubricant solution.

An advanced, fully synthetic motor oil, Mobil 1 ESP Formula 5W-30 is expertly engineered to help prolong the life and maintain the efficiency of Car Emission Reduction Systems found in diesel powered automobiles.

In fact, tests show that Mobil 1 ESP Formula 5W-30 can help keep diesel engines running like new...even after 225,000 kilometers.

Under the Bonnet

Recently, automotive experts at the Mobil 1 Technical Center subjected a 2006 Volkswagen Jetta TDI, equipped with a 1.9L turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine, to extensive testing under extended-length driving conditions.

The vehicle accumulated 225,000 kilometers on a dynamometer, with oil changes completed at 16,000 kilometer intervals. The vehicle was operated to simulate everyday driving conditions.

Along with visual inspections, the team conducted a series of critical performance tests and measurements, such as:

Used oil analysis

Oil consumption

Wear protection analysis

Deposit control

Emissions testing 

Results Show:

Tests showed that Mobil 1 ESP Formula 5W-30 delivered:

Exceptional protection against sludge and varnish 

Outstanding engine cleanliness

Excellent deposit control

Minimal wear on critical parts

Minimal oil consumption
