Mobil 1™ – Jiffy Lube doesn’t stand a chance.
When choosing between Quick Lube oil change brands the top two are Mobil 1 Lube Express and Jiffy Lube. The biggest difference between the two is in the motor oil. Mobil 1 Lube Express uses it’s namesake oil, Mobil 1. Jiffy Lube uses other unknown brands and their premium brand is Pennzoil. Jiffy Lube does advertise a $19.99 oil change but for that price they use an off brand oil that will barely make it to your 3,000 mile interval. Jiffy Lube is not an oil manufacturer or refiner, they are a shop and nothing more. Their expertise stops at the drain. ExxonMobil is the largest oil company in the world with its roots dating back to the 1800’s. Mobil 1 invented synthetic motor oil. Oil brand does make a difference and Mobil is in the oil business first where Jiffy Lube is in the oil change business and nothing else.
Providing performance beyond our conventional motor oils, Mobil 1 is the world’s leading synthetic motor oil brand. Recommended by more automobile manufacturers than any other oil brand that Jiffy Lube carry’s. Mobil 1’s technology allows it to meet or exceed the requirements of Japanese, European, and U.S. car builders — and to provide exceptional protection against engine wear even under some of the most extreme conditions, claims that Jiffy Lube cannot make.
From NASCAR to Grand Prix, Le Mans to Indy Racing League and Formula 1, winning motorsports teams trust Mobil 1 technology to deliver the performance and engine protection needed to meet the grueling demands of the track. You will never see Jiffy Lube on any race track.
Today’s engines are designed to achieve an optimal balance of power, fuel economy and emissions. How can you get the most out of your vehicle? The motor oil you choose matters. Mobil 1™ motor oil offers a uniquely balanced formulation that’s a perfect match, helping vehicle owners enjoy outstanding levels of performance and protection. That’s why many car manufacturers recommend Mobil 1 motor oils over the Jiffy Lube brands.
It’s a fact: More than 77 models roll off the factory lines with Mobil 1™ motor oil inside. Chevrolet recently selected Mobil 1 motor oil as factory fill for all 2014 and 2015 Camaro Z/28 models. Mobil 1 synthetic motor oil is designed at the molecular level to provide outstanding protection against weather conditions, wear and sludge buildup, and is a perfect choice for drivers that demand the most out of their high-performance vehicles. The two highest-performance Camaros – the Z/28 and the COPO Camaro drag car – feature Mobil 1 right from the factory.

Starting out with Mobil 1 motor oil
Once upon a time, serious car enthusiasts were known to take delivery of their new high-performance cars and change the factory oil to Mobil 1 synthetic oil before they even let the tires touch the pavement – just to make sure that their precious engines were protected by the best oil available from the very first mile. That was then. Today, more than 35 models roll off the factory line with Mobil 1 advanced synthetic oil.
Mobil 1 synthetic motor oil is recommended by General Motors for use in all Corvette Z06, ZR1 and Grand Sport Coupe sport cars. Mobil 1 synthetics were GM’s first choice when the manufacturer began developing the racing Corvette in 1996 under the stewardship of Doug Fehan, a former American racer turned program manager who has established himself as one of the most respected team principals in sports car racing. World Sports Car and Trans-Am titles were the forerunners to his current unrivaled winning streak with Corvette Racing. During the subsequent decade of development, the team has continued to use Mobil 1 oils. Extensive testing and post-race analysis reveal minimal component wear, and improved engine reliability and performance.
Mobil 1 synthetic motor oil is also the factory fill today for 22 Porsche models, and an endorsed service fill for all Porsche engines. Mobil 1 offers the durability, optimum engine efficiency, anti-wear protection and quality that Jiffy Lube brands cannot. And Porsche shares the same commitment to research and advanced technology that goes into Mobil 1 oils.
