Mobil 1™ Proven Performance for Turbochargers
Turbochargers are no longer just reserved for sports cars. By 2021, turbocharged engines could represent 38 percent of all new vehicles sold in the U.S., according to IHS Automotive. That means your next car - whether it's a sedan or a light-duty truck - might have a turbocharger under the hood.
Downsized and boosted: A revolution in engine design
Fuel economy and greenhouse gas regulations have changed the way engines are built; the Environmental Protection Agency has designated 54.5 miles per gallon (mpg) as the standard for automakers' fleets in 2025. Due to a heightened focus on increasing mpg, smaller four-cylinder engines with complicated systems - hybrid, start-stop and turbo - are now replacing larger six- and eight-cylinder engines.
Turbocharged engines have emerged as the answer to automakers' needs to deliver fuel efficiency without sacrificing power. And turbocharger applications can benefit from the innovative properties of Mobil 1™ advanced full synthetic motor oil because they demand greater performance and protection. Mobil 1 motor oil provides outstanding turbocharged engine protection.
