The ExxonMobil logo is found on fuels and lubricants that clients purchase in large quantities, for ocean-going vessels and planes, for example.
Esso is the phonetically written abbreviation of Standard Oil (S.O.). In the seventies, the courts imposed certain restrictions on the use of the names Standard Oil and Esso in the US. Therefore both the group and brand names in the US were changed to Exxon. The current group name originated in 1999 when Exxon merged with Mobil to form ExxonMobil. The Esso brand name is a guarantee of quality fuels supplied through a network of service stations and a large number of retailers to car drivers, companies and organizations.
Mobil has been breaking new ground in the development of lubricants for over 100 years. Since then, Mobil has developed lubricants in every market segment that have exceeded all corresponding technical requirements. Moreover, Mobil has secured a strong position in the synthetic lubricants sector. Mobil products are on sale in the Benelux at Esso service stations, a number of chain stores and at garages.
Our world-leading synthetic lubricants carry the brand name Mobil 1. Formula 1 functions as a practical testing ground for Mobil’s new products. An oil compound that performs well in Formula 1 will eventually find its way to the consumer. There actually isn’t a great deal of difference between the Mobil 1 engine oil you can purchase in an Esso service station and the oil used in Formula 1 cars. The temperature in a racing engine running at top speed is comparable to that of a standard car engine on a hot summer’s day. Engine manufacturers will continue to do everything in their power to push the limits of their products. Naturally, Mobil also participates in these technical and technological developments, with the car driver being the ultimate winner. His car engine will perform better, last longer and use less fuel.
