MAG 1® Delivers Evolutionary Performance

MAG 1 motor oils and lubricants, manufactured by Warren Distribution, are leading the way in a new evolution based on the science of advanced additives and a powerful molecular structure that resists engine wear. It’s called FMX Technology – Friction Management for Xtreme Protection™.

FMX is the reason MAG 1 can deliver extraordinary performance, strength and durability, even in lighter viscosities and at higher fluid pressures. This performance-boosting system works on multiple levels under the most extreme operating conditions by forming a friction-fighting shield to prevent metal-to-metal contact of rotating parts.

The result is unsurpassed protection.
