I don’t know much about oil. We have a new car we take to the dealership every couple of months for upkeep. We also have an old Jeep Patriot and an old Ford F150; both are well over 100K miles. I have heard that adding quality oil in your car can really help with the engine. So I teamed up on this sponsored campaign to work with ExxonMobil.
I honestly hadn’t heard of the new Mobil 1 Annual Protection product, nor did I know there was a difference in the type of oil you should use for cars. When I was younger my dad taught me how to check the oil level but I have always gone to a mechanic and let them pick what goes in our car.
I learned a lot on my adventure to Walmart to purchase Mobil 1™ Annual Protection . I had no clue that there are so many different types of oils! I also didn’t know that every type of car takes a different number, also known as “viscosity” – different cars take different viscosities, and those numbers on the label help to decipher what to use for your car (like 0W0-30).
Since we just recently started driving the truck again (it is almost 20 years old and has been parked for years), I decided that I should buy this product for our F150! I bought it at Walmart and brought it in to my mechanic. I asked for help from the mechanic and the shop manager, Michael, came to answer my questions. I really learned a lot!
I also learned that the Mobil 1™ Annual Protection motor oil is a premium motor oil product providing 1 year* of protection between oil changes. Yes, you read that right! (*1 year or 20,000 miles, whichever comes first). No more trips to get the oil changed multiple times a year. That’s a huge time AND cost savings! Boy times are changing.
Here are some of things Michael taught me:
- You can use Mobil 1™ Annual Protection motor oil to fill up or totally change your oil. It’s been tested to ensure it meets the highest standard of motor oil performance, so you can go a full year on one oil change with Mobil1 Annual Protection and still get the best protection for your engine.
- When changing your oil, consider a synthetic like Mobil 1™ Annual Protection motor oil. The special additives help get rid of the harmful deposits in your engine.
- Different manufacturers and vehicles require different types of oils. So our Jeep needs a 5W-20 and our Ford needs a 5W-30.
- Be careful not to overfill your oil because you can really hurt your car’s engine.
Exxon Mobil 1™ Annual Protection
By using this product along with the Mobil 1™ Extended Performance oil filter, I feel better about taking care of our old truck since there is guaranteed protection with the Mobil 1 Annual Protection motor oil. The filters ALSO have codes on which ones should be used with which car. I got help from the associate at Walmart on getting the right oil and filter for my car! This gives me the peace of mind that I am giving our vehicle the best possible care!
