Mobil 1 0W-20 is recommended for all types of modern vehicles, especially high-performance turbo-charged 4 and 6 cylinder gasoline and diesel multi-valve fuel injected engines including those found in passenger cars, light vans and trucks.


Mobil 1 0W-20 is a leading edge viscosity grade uniquely designed to enhance the power output of vehicles equipped with high revolution engines, while providing a protection system for the most extreme driving conditions.

Mobil is pushing this oil as not only a fuel efficient oil, but an oil that is ideal for high reving engines. I guess they assume HP increases with this oil. I might have to give it a shot. If clearances havn't changed, then any car with a 30wt. could run it. My car is getting old, it's time to experiment.

I think this oil is going to be good. It's only a 20pt spread, like M1 10w-30, and should be a solid oil.

Haven't tried the Mobil 1 as we use Synergyn 0W-20 for the most part. Son is now using German Castrol 0W-30 and mpg is down over 1 (nearly 2) and on this 2.0L Ford Zetec dohc you can feel a revving/performance drop. Slight but noticeable.
Funny, this 0W20 looks a lot like the NEO 0W5 we talked about before on another thread. It was brought up that the NEO is really a 20 wt. oil.

Pour Point: M1 0W20 = -57C; NEO 0W5 = -62C

Flash Point: M1 0W20 = 232C; NEO 0W5 = 226C

Viscosity Index: M1 0W20 = 165; NEO 0W5 = 180
