Formulated for the extremes of turbocharged engines
Although turbochargers have several advantages, those advantages come with challenges – higher temperatures, higher rpm and greater compression.
While engine crankshafts average about 3,000 rpm at motorway speeds, the turbocharger shaft can reach speeds up to 200,000 rpm. Additionally, the oil in a turbocharger can exceed temperatures of 200⁰C, which is about twice the average heat of non-turbocharged engines. Such high temperatures can cause some motor oils to decompose, resulting in more engine deposits and diminished performance.
Mobil 1 oils resist breakdown by delivering outstanding oxidation stability and thermal protection down to -40⁰C and up to 260⁰C. When used in turbocharged applications, Mobil 1 oils offer exceptional:
• Protection of thrust bearing
• Varnish control on shaft bushing
• Deposit and build-up control on the compressor, compressor seal plate and turbo housing
