Ships from the East Coast LocationExxon Elite is a blend of synthetic and mineral-based oils (plus a highly effective additive package). A fully synthetic oil may not have the solvency to handle the lead deposits that result from the use of leaded fuel. Exxon Elite was developed as a semi-synthetic formulation that combines the best of both synthetics and conventional oils.
As a multigrade oil, it offers the flexibility to lubricate effectively over a wider range of temperatures than monograde oils. Compared to a monograde oil, a multigrade oil provides better cold-start protection and a stronger lubricant film at typical operating temperatures. Other benefits include lower oil consumption and better fuel economy. As a premium multigrade oil, Exxon Elite has all of these intrinsic advantages.
