ExxonMobil Partners With Massachusetts State Police09:19 EDT Thursday, June 14, 2012 FAIRFAX, Va. (Business Wire) -- 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. For the everyday driver, Mobil 1 Advanced Fuel Economy oils deliver up to 2 percent fuel economy improvement and can save drivers over $400 on gasoline over the life of their vehicles. That's a savings of about six cents per gallon of fuel.1About Mobil 1 The world's leading synthetic motor oil brand, Mobil 1 features anti-wear technology that provides performance beyond conventional motor oils. This technology allows Mobil 1 to meet the toughest standards of car builders and to provide exceptional protection against engine wear under normal or even some of the most extreme conditions.

Actual savings are dependent upon vehicle/engine type, outside temperature, driving conditions and your current engine oil viscosity. Savings estimates are based on a gallon cost of $3 per gallon, average fuel economy of 27.3 mpg, annual mileage of 11,413, and lifetime mileage of 182,608.
