Mobil 1™  0W-20 provides hybrid proven performance

Mobil 1™ 0W-20 has been proven to provide year-round performance and protection in hybrid engines. In a 120,000+km field test using two Toyota Prius taxis pushed to their limits daily in the cold and extreme heat, the oil demonstrated exceptional protection against deposit, sludge, and wear.

A field test was conducted with Mobil 1 0W-20 on Toyota Prius taxi vehicles operated day-in day-out over 120,000 km in cold and extreme hot weather conditions, as well as in mixed city, suburban and highway driving conditions. Periodic engine inspections demonstrated excellent protection against deposits, sludge, and wear despite the strenuous operating conditions and the accumulation of numerous stop-and-go events.
