Can you go a year*
between oil changes?

* 1 year or 20,000 miles, whichever comes first.

Get maximum wear protection and powerful performance with all-new Mobil 1 Annual Protection motor oil
Imagine the ideal motor oil. It’s likely a product that lets you drive longer between oil changes without compromising on superior performance. That’s what ExxonMobil researchers heard again and again when they spoke with consumers—then they went back to their labs and made that ideal a reality, with Mobil 1 Annual Protection.

Now your motor oil can take you farther and wider than ever before. With Mobil 1 Annual Protection, you get ultimate engine protection and performance for up to 1 full year. You save time and money spent on oil changes and still get the outstanding protection and performance levels that let you know you’re giving your car the very best care.

Breakthrough technology for a better ride
Nikki Brown, ExxonMobil lubricant technical engineer, says Mobil 1 Annual Protection represents the latest synthetic technology and that it 'offers maximum wear protection, helps prevent harmful sludge and deposits, and extends oil life up to 1 year or 20,000 miles.'
'Consumers said prove it—and we did'
People are savvy about product claims today.'When we told consumers we could provide our best protection all the way up to 1 full year, they said we’d need to prove it,' says Brown. Researchers obliged, putting the new motor oil through their toughest tests. They performed severe service-testing on three different vehicles with turbo-charged engines, which generated extreme heat. The cars drove over 120,000 miles, with an oil change only every 20,000 miles. The lab results were exciting for researchers and consumers alike: the used-oil analysis showed very little wear to metals, and there was no sign of sludge or other harmful deposits.
