    1. High-quality base oils

    Mobil 1 synthetic oils are developed from a proprietary blend of high-quality base oils. Conventional oils are made from a different blend of less refined base oils.

    2. Hand-selected components

    Mobil 1 synthetic oils include a system of more than 15 hand-selected components as a unique proprietary blend that helps the oils retain their protective qualities under extreme conditions. Conventional oils don’t include the same system of hand-selected components, so they break down quicker and provide less protection under extreme conditions.
