Synthetic Oil - Frequently Asked Questions

What's so good about synthetic oil?

All engine oils are made of base oils and additives. A synthetic lubricant contains more highly refined base oils than conventional mineral oils, offering you superior protection and performance. Synthetic engine oils such as Mobil 1™ provide a variety of benefits that keep your engine running at optimal performance for years, such as help to prevent wear, keep an engine clean, flow easily, maintain viscosity, prevent rust and reduce friction.

How should I dispose of used synthetic engine oil?
You should follow the same environmentally sound procedures that you do with conventional engine oil. Please contact your local environment agency or your regulatory body for more detailed guidelines on disposal.
