We're putting the protection and performance of Mobil 1™ advanced full synthetic motor oil to the test by grabbing a real Las Vegas cab off the streets and tearing down its engine with the cameras rolling. You can watch it live Thursday, Nov. 7 at 1:00 p.m. ET on the Mobil 1 Facebook page!
Filming at the Lucky Cab Company garage with host Marty Smith, we'll tear down an engine from Lucky Cab's fleet to show the real-world results of Mobil 1 motor oil. Lucky Cab selects Mobil 1 motor oil for its entire taxi fleet which needs to endure the extreme conditions of Las Vegas driving.
A third-party automotive expert will examine the critical engine
parts and let us know the performance results. Watch along

Why test motor oil in Las Vegas?
Las Vegas is one of the toughest urban areas for a motor oil to perform. The combination of
extreme heat in the summer – with road temperatures sometimes exceeding 150°F – and
near-freezing temperatures in the winter put significant pressure on motor oils to protect critical engine parts.
Pair these temperature variances with dusty roads, constant
stop-and-go driving and long idle times, and the result is a driving environment that puts engines
under some of the most severe conditions found nearly anywhere.
But this is also what makes it the perfect proving ground for Mobil 1™ products.

What is the Mobil 1 Lucky Cab testing program?
LuckyCab Taxi ServicesThe next level of performance - Save now
To test and prove the real-world performance of Mobil 1™ synthetic motor oils, ExxonMobil since 2004 has partnered with the Lucky Cab Company of Nevada to test Mobil 1 lubricants in its taxi fleet.
Many taxicabs run 24 hours a day, seven days a week. In these grueling conditions, ExxonMobil engineers evaluate and re-evaluate how Mobil 1 oils perform to ensure they consistently meet the highest industry standards.
And what have they found?
Lucky Cab's Fleet Manager, Joe Hicks, had this to say: "We see longer oil drains and increased fuel mileage, and we have noticed that the vehicles run better, run cooler, and have fewer breakdowns than with the oil that we used before."
