Mobil: GF-6 is here!

01 May 2020, Posted by McPherson Oil in Product Announcements

The wait is over. GF-6 – the newest ILSAC engine oil performance standard aimed at improving fuel economy, providing Low-Speed Pre-Ignition and timing chain wear protection for passenger vehicles – is here.

We’ve been planning for this. ExxonMobil research and engineering teams have been providing leadership and expert input in the development of the new GF-6 specifications from the start.

Switching to GF-6 oils can result in up to:

  • 14% improved cleanliness
  • 33% improved high-temperature viscosity control
  • New timing chain wear test allowing less than 0.085% stretch
  • 25% improvement in fuel economy index
  • LSPI protection for modern turbocharged gasoline direct injection (TGDI) engines
