Motor oil is made from crude oil and is used to lubricate, clean, and cool engines. Types of motor oil include conventional, synthetic, diesel, bio-based, hybrid (blends of conventional and synthetic), and recycled oils. Motor oil varies in weight and viscosity, as well as additives that some manufacturers add to the oil during the refining process. A numerical code system created by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) grades motor oils according to viscosity--the higher the number between 0 and 60, the more viscous (thicker) the oil is. Most consumer motor oils are graded by two numbers, with the first number indicating cold weather (Winter or "W") performance.
This oil has a weight of SAE 0W-40, meaning it has an SAE viscosity rating of 0 in cold temperatures and a rating of 40 at normal operating temperature. Always check your vehicle's owner's manual to verify that this is the correct weight of motor oil for your vehicle.
Full Synthetic Oil
This oil is a full synthetic oil, meaning crude oil is not used in making it. Synthetic oil can be used in vehicle engines instead of motor oils refined from crude oil, and often provides superior mechanical performance over traditional motor oil, including increased gas mileage and reduced engine wear at extreme temperatures. Its complex method of production means it can often cost more than conventional motor oil.

I often will run oil analysis on oil that comes from my cars, or even on a new bottle of oil, just to see its composition.
Mobil 1 0w40 has more additives in it than say one of the more common viscosities like 5w30.
The reason being is that this 0w40 product is recommended or approved by many European manufacturers who have stringent standards. Indeed, some of these manufacturers do not only require specific performance requirements for this oil, but will actually specify where the additives packages must be purchased from. Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, and BMW are just some of the manufacturers who have approvals on this oil.
Furthermore, all AMG vehicles and Porsches come from the factory with this very 0w40 Mobil 1. It is even used in some racing vehicles around the world.
Mobil 1 does not just meet specifications, but tends to exceed those specs.
Some might argue that Mobil 1 has changed its formula a lot over the years. However, one thing is clear. Mobil 1 0w40 is a quality product, approved by some of the most stringent manufacturer specifications, and it is the same formula found around the world.
Amazon has great opportunities to have this oil delivered to your door. There are often rebates available on the product.
It's a proven product. Recommended.
The two numbers in the rating, 0W-40, are the viscosity at low and high temps. You basically want low viscosity at low temps when you start the engine to get lubrication flowing quickly and high viscosity at normal engine operating temperature to reduce engine wear. Standard petroleum-based oil does not have such a dynamic viscosity range, so oil manufacturers have created synthetic oils to do this. But many of them have been using petroleum-based oil combined with lots of additives to achieve this dynamic range and labeling it synthetic (because it is cheaper than a pure synthetic). These are known as Group III based oils. The problem is that there is the risk of the additives breaking down under high stress, leaving you with oil that only performs at the lower rating (i.e. 0 in this case!). This can lead to sludging. So what you want is a Group IV based oil, a.k.a. PAO-based (Poly-Alpha-Olefin), which means it is truly synthetic and does not need additives, and has no risk of breaking down. And it lasts longer, from 3000-15000 miles according to their website but I change mine every 5K-7.5K (check with your car manufacturer for what they recommend).
Since I do my own oil changes, I always read the owner's manual for maintenance tips. Because my Audi was the first car I have ever owned with a turbo, I made sure to read the oil section carefully. Audi (and parent VW) are so big that they can specify the characteristics their engines require to oil manufacturers. Almost always, this spec is spelled out in the manual and Mobil 1 will place it right on the bottle (in my case, the spec is VW 502.00).
Modern engines are very high tech with tight clearances and technology that delivers, compared to just a few years ago, superior performance. And yet they are relatively non-polluting. Also, they are engineered to deliver good fuel mileage. This oil makes it on all counts.
I urge you to crack the owner's manual and look at what your car's manufacturer recommends in terms of viscosity (that's the 0W-40 part), what type of oil works best (e.g., synthetic or not) and the proper drain intervals.
I always follow the first two recommendations (viscosity, type) and "half" the last (drain interval). For various reasons (many of which are not based on pure technical analysis) the drain intervals on new cars have extended way beyond what I consider prudent. Me, since I own, not lease, my cars, I always reduce their recommendations by cutting them at least in half. That, however is my habit.Read more ›
