Mobil Jet Oil 254
Mobil Jet Oil 254 is a third generation, extra high performance, synthetic aircraft-type gas turbine lubricant engineered to meet the performance requirements for gas turbine engines used in commercial and military aircraft.
This product is formulated from a specially prepared, hindered-ester base stock and fortified with a unique chemical additive package.
The result is a product having superior thermal and oxidation stability that resists deterioration and deposit formation while maintaining the physical properties of Mobil Jet Oil 254 are similar to those currently available, earlier-generation gas turbine lubricants. The effective opening range of the lubricant is between -40°C (-40°F) and 232°C (450°F).

Mobil Jet Oil 254 is formulated to meet the demanding requirements of latest technology aircraft-type gas turbines operating over a wide range of severe operating conditions. When compared to a typical Type II lubricant, Mobil Jet Oil 254 reduces bulk oil oxidation by up to 50 percent and shows deposit control capability 50 F higher. These properties have been confirmed in various laboratory tests including; the Corrosion-Oxidation Stability Test, Alcor Deposition Test, Vapor Phase Coker, Erdco High-Temperature Bearing Test, Ryder Gear and the Mobil Thin Film Oxidation Test.The closely controlled low-temperature viscosity of Mobil Jet Oil 254, along with its low pour point (below -54ºC), ensure good low-temperature fluidity to permit starting and lubrication at temperatures as low as -40ºC. In extensive laboratory testing and in-flight experience, Mobil Jet Oil 254 also exhibits excellent bulk oil stability at temperatures up to 232ºC (450ºF) for extended periods. The evaporation rate at these temperatures is low enough to prevent excessive loss of volume. The load-carrying ability of Mobil Jet Oil 254 comes from its synthetic base stock viscosity and, therefore, is not subject to loss from viscosity index additive shear. The lubricant has excellent resistance to foaming. Key features and benefits include:
|Features||Advantages and Potential Benefits|
|Excellent thermal and oxidation stability||Reduces the formation of carbon and sludge deposits|
Maintains engine efficiency and extends engine life
Reduces bulk oil oxidation by 50% and increases deposit control by 50ºF

Mobil Jet Oil 254 – Applications
Mobil Jet Oil 254 is recommended for:
- Aircraft gas turbine engines of the turbo-jet
- Turbo-shaft (helicopter) types used in commercial and military service.
It is also suitable for aircraft-type gas turbine engines used in industrial or marine applications.Mobil Jet Oil 254 is approved against the High Thermal Stability (HTS) classification of U.S. Military Specification MIL-PRF-23699. It is also compatible with other synthetic gas turbine lubricants meeting MIL-PRF-23699. However, mixing with other products is not recommended because the blend would result in some loss of the superior performance characteristics of Mobil Jet Oil 254.Mobil Jet Oil 254 is completely compatible with all metals used in gas turbine construction, as well as with F Rubber (Viton A), H Rubber (Buna N), and other commonly used seal materials.

Question & Answer (Q+A)
I am wondering of your Mobile 254 has corrosion inhibiting additives? Also, can you supply a certificate of analysis with this product. I need to meet MIL-PRF-23699.
Per the manufacturer regarding part # 08-07374, they believe that the answer is no, it does not contain corrosion inhibiting additives but advised to review specifications document found in the “Documents” tab. A Certificate of Analysis can be provided with order, but must be requested at time of order. It does meet MIL-PRF-23699.
