This oil has a high quality synthetic base with which it is possible to enjoy less wear and better cleanliness of the engine when driving, supporting even the demand of the most complex driving conditions.
Some opinions indicate that the oil received may not be as recent as would be desirable, so it does not hurt to take a look at the labels and the manufacturing dates once we have it at home.
Mobil 1 151060 ESP motor oil is derived entirely from a blend of state-of-the-art synthetic components and entirely developed by the brand, in order to achieve the best lubrication results in all types of engines. An approach that not only meets the requirements of the most common norms and standards, but also exceeds them, in order to increase the level of protection that oil offers your engine.
This approach results in an oil with a low ash content, so that the presence of the dreaded particles of combustion is reduced. Particles that are a big problem for pollution purposes and that also force modern particle filters to work excessively.
This improvement is also present on the side of sulfur and phosphorus. Two common elements in conventional 5W30 oils and which in this case have a more discreet presence within the formula of this product. Something that allows to reduce the poisoning and alteration of the catalysts of gasoline engines, also improving their performance and reducing the pollution levels of this type of vehicle.
Friction and consumption properties
One of the main tasks that oil has in an engine is to reduce the friction between its different parts. Something in which this product also excels, thus offering improved friction properties. Thanks to this characteristic, the oil keeps the protective film intact for a longer time regardless of the level of demand of the engine, so that this layer does not deteriorate during the break-in.
This protection is maintained during normal use, but also in complex conditions such as low temperatures, where lubrication of the engine may not be complete. Thanks to its fluidity, the oil covers the different elements of the engine more quickly from the very start of the vehicle, no matter how low the temperature, so that the wear derived in this phase of the break-in is reduced.
These two properties better protect the engine, but also serve to extend its useful life, by reducing its internal friction. An aspect that also contributes to reducing fuel consumption, since the part of fuel that is used directly to reduce the resistance of the engine caused by friction is now not necessary to spend. So you can recoup part of the price of this oil with less fuel consumption.
Durability and cleanliness
To complete all the properties that this oil offers us, it is necessary to take a look at its durability. This durability has also been improved, through greater thermal stability and adequate protection against oxidation. The thermal stability prevents the consumption of oil derived from the operation at high temperatures, so that the consumption of this oil is reduced compared to other products. Regarding the protection against oxidation, this keeps the oil in good condition for longer, thus extending maintenance intervals and helping you save money on them.
Regarding the cleaning properties of the engine, the oil incorporates the new active cleaning agents developed by the brand. Some agents that further reduce the accumulation of dirt, shear and sludge deposits inside the engine, eliminating them efficiently through the catalyst or the particulate filter. In addition, these particles increase in size, thus facilitating their retention by the oil filter, so that the oil itself also stays cleaner for longer.
