NEW MOBIL 1 IS LUBRICANT FOR CORVETTE SPORTS CAR

 NEW MOBIL 1 IS LUBRICANT FOR CORVETTE SPORTS CAR
 FAIRFAX, Va., July 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Mobil Corporation (NYSE: MOB)


said today that its synthetic lubricant Mobil 1, in the advanced formula introduced this year, has become the factory-fill lubricant for Chevrolet's Corvette sports car.
 "Our tests on this advanced formulation of Mobil 1 showed that it can virtually eliminate wear on critical parts in new automobile engines," said James T. Mann, Mobil's vice president for U.S. Marketing. "We're delighted the Chevrolet Division of General Motors will now be delivering the new Corvette, one of its most advanced and best known products, with our new Mobil 1 already in the engine."
 Mann said the Corvette owner's manual will reflect G.M.'s recommendation for owners' use of Mobil 1, as will a decal plate installed on the Corvette's engine.
 The Corvette, manufactured in G.M.'s Bowling Green, Ky., assembly plant, has been popular for nearly 40 years among sports-car enthusiasts. The car is considered a leading example of the best in U.S. automotive technology. The one-millionth Corvette rolled off General Motors' assembly line in Kentucky this month.
 Mobil introduced Mobil 1 synthetic lubricant to U.S. and world markets starting in 1976. The company launched research to develop an improved formulation in 1989, and says the advanced formula Mobil 1 used by Corvette provides substantial improvements in preventing wear, keeping engines clean, and in high-temperature performance.
