Mobil Jet Oil 387 Approved for Use in GE Aviation CF6 Engines

Mobil JetTM Oil 387, a synthetic High Performance Capability turbine engine oil, has been approved by GE Aviation for use in its CF6 engines, which includes the CF6-6, CF6-50, CF6-80E and CF6-80C2 commercial as well as L1F and K1F military variants.

CF6 engines are used to power a number of widebody aircraft, including the Boeing 747 and 767, Airbus A300, A310, and A330, McDonnell Douglas MD-11, DC-10, as well as Air Force One.

As part of the required approval process, Mobil Jet Oil 387 underwent more than 40,000 hours of on-wing testing onboard aircraft operated by a large global carrier. Engine inspection results from the evaluation period revealed that Mobil Jet Oil 387 provides the necessary resistance to coking and deposit formation inside the engine’s oil supply and scavenge lines from the 6R bearing, meeting every demand for a High Performance Capability oil.

“Based on the performance results demonstrated throughout the evaluation period, it’s clear that Mobil Jet Oil 387 is a solution that can help keep engines running at peak performance,” said Ali Bakr, global aviation lubricants sales manager at ExxonMobil. “This latest approval with GE provides another vote of confidence for Mobil Jet Oil 387 and its consistent ability to provide protection to fleets around the world.”

Along with Mobil Jet Oil 387, Mobil Jet Oil II and Mobil Jet Oil 254 are also approved for use in GE Aviation CF6 models.
