ExxonMobil Lubricants and Petroleum Specialties
, a division of Exxon Mobil Corporation, announced today a six-year partnership with the Massachusetts State Police to become the sole lubricant provider for the entire 2,500-vehicle fleet. Since March 1, 2012, all Massachusetts State Police vehicles have been using Mobil 1 Advanced Fuel Economy.
The Massachusetts State Police’s decision to establish the new fleet efficiency program stemmed from over four years of work with various ExxonMobil personnel who executed a comprehensive vehicle profile and oil analysis. In tandem with the Massachusetts State Police, ExxonMobil engineers examined the department’s equipment and vehicles, recommending the appropriate lubricants for each vehicle and providing the Mobil 1 limited warranty for their use, which is valid for up to 10,000 mile oil change intervals.
“Mobil 1 Advanced Fuel Economy was formulated to deliver outstanding engine protection and improved fuel economy,” said Joe Moceri, Northeast District Sales Manager for ExxonMobil Lubricants and Petroleum Specialties. “This partnership with the Massachusetts State Police will showcase how Mobil 1 Advanced Fuel Economy helps improve efficiency in modern gasoline engines in areas such as the oil pump, valve train, pistons, cylinders and crankshaft.”
ExxonMobil will use this partnership as a live testing ground to demonstrate exceptional protection against engine wear, even under the extreme conditions that the Massachusetts State Police encounter each day.
To help save tax-payer dollars, the Massachusetts State Police explored a more efficient fleet that would have a positive environmental impact. The switch to Mobil 1 Advanced Fuel Economy is estimated annually to help the department use 7,000 fewer gallons of lubricant and 5,000 fewer oil filters. Ultimately, it is believed that Mobil 1 Advanced Fuel Economy will provide savings to the fleet’s total annual costs.
Mobil 1 Advanced Fuel Economy builds on a tradition that goes back more than 30 years of providing outstanding protection against engine wear. At the same time, it provides better fuel economy that comes from using a lower viscosity oil, since less energy is required to circulate the oil. That leaves more energy to drive a vehicle forward.
