Here’s an interesting figure to spice up your Thursday: Chevrolet has produced over 1.5-million Corvettes since 1953 and nearly half of those–600,000– have come factory filled with Mobil 1 oil.
The relationship first started back in 1993 with the C4 Corvette and since then nearly every version of the Corvette has come factory filled with Mobil 1’s synthetic oil.
Today, both the Corvette Z06 and the Stingray with the Z51 Performance Package come factory filled with the company’s latest synthetic blend, though it’s the recommend service fill for all Corvette models.
While the inherent benefits and drawbacks of various motor oils are constantly in debate, it’s interesting to note that the most powerful vehicle Chevrolet has ever produced comes factory filled with Mobil 1 synthetic.
Have a look at the brief video Mobil 1 cooked up to celebrate the milestone and then let us know– Do you stick with the factory oil or have you switched to something different? Any noticeable differences?
