Evidence confirms Mobilgard 540 supports reliable performance using low sulphur fuel

Evidence confirms Mobilgard™ 540 supports reliable performance for a wide range of engines using low sulphur fuel

The International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) 2020 emissions regulation radically changed the industry’s fuels landscape, which in turn raised questions about cylinder oil selection.

To allay these concerns, ExxonMobil developed Mobilgard™ 540, a cylinder oil specially formulated for use with 0.50% and 0.10% sulphur fuels.

The 40BN oil has been used on numerous vessels, of various types, in different operating conditions. Data from ExxonMobil’s Mobil Serv℠ Cylinder Condition Monitoring service revealed low levels of liner wear were maintained following the changeover to Mobilgard 540.
