Video: Porsche explains why it uses Mobil 1 synthetic oil
In this video by Porsche and Mobil 1, Claudia Romberg (Director of Advanced Powertrain Development and Strategy) discusses the importance of using synthetic engine oil in your Porsche’s powerplant.
The difference between the two cylinder heads (one run on Mobil 1 synthetic, the other without) is eye opening. Using the correct oil can improve both efficiency of your engine, while also maximising its power output. With winter approaching, maybe it’s time to check your Porsche 911’s oil.
Porsche’s partnership with Mobil 1 extends beyond their road car line-up, with the premium synthetic oils being used across the range of 911 motorsport efforts, including the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup.
Mobil 1 oils have even seen victory in one of the most gruelling races of all: the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Stéphane Ortelli, Allan McNish, and Laurent Aïello guided their Porsche 911 GT1-98 triumphed in the 1998 running of the French classic.
