2014 marks the 40th anniversary of the commercial introduction of the Mobil 1 brand. Since 1974, Mobil 1 synthetic motor oil has been elevating the benchmark for delivering outstanding protection and performance from an automotive engine oil. Decade after decade, the Mobil 1 brand's relationships with automakers and award-winning race teams have grown and evolved into true automotive design and innovation partnerships.
In 1974, when Mobil 1 synthetic engine oil was officially born, it was released to safely enhance fuel-efficiency. Later formulations aimed to provide protection over the widest range of temperatures and driving conditions. Another iteration lowered phosphorus levels for extended catalytic converter life.
