Mobil 1 is a line of synthetic oils available in different formulations, such as extended performance, advanced fuel economy, high mileage and others. These oils provide benefits for car engines that traditional oils do not.
Synthetic oil contains components that protect engines and allow the car to go longer periods of time between oil changes. Synthetic oils perform better under low and high temperatures and contain fewer impurities than conventional oils. Most newer cars can safely use synthetic oils and there are no special steps necessary to make the switch. However, car owners should always check their auto manual for any special instructions regarding oil types prior to changing the type of oil they use.
