“To Mobil 1’s credit, both engines ran beautifully for the entire period of the test without the slightest sign of being stressed or overheating. When we drained some of the oil to send samples back to Mobil 1 for testing, we were shocked to find that even after 3,603 gruelling kilometres the oil looked and felt almost as if new. Overall, the report indicated good overall health of both the oil and the engine. We couldn’t ask for more,” said an Overdrive team member.

Stock engine oil was drained, and after a 3,600 kilometre run, a clean engine wsa still the order of the day. As a leading Synthetic Engine Oil, Mobil 1 features a Proprietary Multi-Layer Anti-Wear Technology to provide improved performance beyond conventional engine oils. This permits it to excel in the toughest conditions.
