This color educational/training film is about the brand new Super Mobil Oil. This oil first appeared in 1974 thus the year of the film. Opening titles/credit sequence: YOU KNOW IT BY ITS COLOR (:07-:33). Shots of oil and Mobil and 3 times longer (:34-1:46). A model poses. Super mobil. Look and Life magazine covers. Super Mobil oil (1:47-2:26). Super Mobil Oil, Brand X oil, and ice. Our narrator explains how the new oil keeps engines three times cleaner. We are introduced to the new Super Mobil Oil as well as a model who keeps interrupting the proceedings (2:27-5:30). Super Mobil oil in an experiment vs Brand X oil. Water is added for the demonstration. Acid is added as well. Road dirt and soot is added as well. All of this is ground up together (5:31-7:44). Once done the oil mixture is poured out into the mixing bowls. 25% of all driving is less than 1 1/2 miles, 65% of driving is less than 6 1/2 miles. 80% is less than 14 miles. These short trips cause sludge and could cause problems for the engine (7:45-9:52). Super Mobil oil looks to solve a lot of these problems. A fake relief pitcher was created to explain how short trips can ruin a pitcher and a cold engine can suffer damage as well (9:53-11:39). Super Mobil oil vs conventional oil in a test. A scoop of sludge is placed into each oil. Kerosene is placed in each to thin the oil. A cap is then placed on each and then each is shaken to mix it up. The test continues and you can see how the mobil oil is thicker and better (11:40-14:50). The next test is for 2 scoops of sludge. After standing for 5 mins, light can shine through the conventional oil while in the Super Mobil oil, no light shines through. The oil has stayed clean (14:51-16:49). Closing comments (16:50-17:05). End credits/sequence about Super Mobil Oil (17:10-18:22).
