Whether you have a large family BMW or a smaller Z series sports car, we can help you find the right oil for your car engine. Use our Which oil tool on the right to find out which oil is right for your BMW.
Fully synthetic oils such as Mobil 1 circulate around your BMW engine more easily than traditional mineral oils, so your engine operates more efficiently. Mobil 1 also gets to work faster so your engine reaches peak operating efficiency quicker. Both of these benefits mean potentially improved fuel efficiencies that save you money on fuel.*
Tests show that Mobil 1 can reach all moving parts of the engine 15 seconds faster than some conventional oils. Until your oil circulates fully, friction between dry parts of the engine will slowly reduce the life of the engine. Synthetic engine oils like Mobil 1 start circulating right away, protecting every moving part within the engine, and over time this can translate into savings in maintenance costs.
It is important to use the right oil in your car to comply with the BMW manufacturer specifications. Using the right Mobil 1 product during routine servicing and according to your vehicle’s handbook will not affect the BMW manufacturer's warranty. You can obtain a recommendation by using the Mobil 'Which oil' tool and searching by make and model or car registration.
