Fully synthetic oils such as Mobil 1 circulate around your Mercedes-Benz 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.

How does fully synthetic oil protect my Mercedes-Benz engine?
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, which over time can translate into maintenance cost savings.
Which oil should I buy for my Mercedes-Benz?
It’s important to use the right oil in your car to comply with Mercedes-Benz’s manufacturer specifications. Using the right Mobil 1 product during routine servicing and according to your vehicle’s handbook will not affect the Mercedes-Benz manufacturer's warranty.
