Mobil 1 Performance Advantage - Mobil 1 Extended Life 10W60 Helps Reduce and Remove Sludge

Mobil 1 Performance Advantage

Mobil 1 Extended Life 10W-60 Helps Reduce  and Remove Sludge

Nearly every Russian driver has heard the word “sludge” and knows that it can harm their car’s engine. Most also have an idea of what sludge looks like – a thick, dark substance that results from severe service conditions leading to oil breakdown in an engine – as seen below.

But what many drivers don’t know is how to protect their engines against sludge.

When subjected to the extreme service conditions that are common in Russia, standard quality oils can thicken and become less fluid. This limits their ability to be circulated through the engine and can lead to excessive wear, deposits and sludge formation. Using a high performance motor oil can offer many advantages over standard quality level oils.

A high performance synthetic oil, like Mobil 1, which contains carefully selected base stocks and additives, will resist thickening, even under some of the most demanding conditions. This helps keep your engine clean, no matter if you drive on the busy streets of Moscow in the winter, or on the country roads of Dubrovki in the summer.

As the world’s leading synthetic motor oil brand, Mobil 1 has continually set the benchmark for lubrication excellence and engine protection. When it comes to protecting engines from sludge, tests show how Mobil 1 technology can be the difference between successful, trouble-free driving, and costly engine rebuilds.

Under the Bonnet

Recently, engineers at ExxonMobil subjected a popular mid-size car to extensive laboratory testing focused on sludge cleanup.

In the first phase of testing, the vehicle was operated in a manner that would lead to the formation of extensive quantities of sludge in the engine.

This was done to simulate what can happen under adverse operating conditions over an extended service period.

In phase two, known as the “Clean Up” phase, the engine was filled with Mobil 1 Extended Life 10W-60, and the vehicle was run for nearly 19,300 kilometers at 6,500 kilometer drain intervals.

The team documented Mobil 1’s performance through a range of techniques, such as intermediate and final engine cleanliness ratings, oil consumption measurement, and used oil analyses.

Results Show:

As the tests demonstrated, the proven performance that Mobil 1 Extended Life 10W-60 offers was evident across all key parameters, delivering outstanding cleanliness, minimal wear and exceptional overall protection.

The pictures below show how Mobil 1 Extended Life 10W-60 can clean up sludge left behind in your engine.

Furthermore, in additional tests, the cold weather performance of Mobil 1 Extended Life 10W-60 was clearly demonstrated. In fact, test results showed how Mobil 1 Extended Life 10W-60 delivers proven startability and rapid protection for critical engine parts even in temperatures as low as – 25°C, an essential benefit for motorists who are well versed in cold weather driving.

These exceptional results are among the reasons why drivers around the world turn to Mobil 1. And why the world’s leading Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) choose Mobil 1 more often than any other oil.
