New turbine engines require high performance advanced turbine engine oils.

Prevailing trends in aircraft turbine engine applications are driving the development of advanced turbine engine oils to their limits. These continued drive towards more powerful, lighter weight engines, with accompanying reductions in noise, emissions and fuel consumption, as well as ongoing improvements in reliability, maintainability, and longer intervals between engine overhauls has seen the birth of a new generation of advanced turbine engine oils.

Is 0W20 better than 5W20 synthetic engine oil?

Ever wonder if 0W20 is better than 5W20 synthetic engine oil?

It’s not really a question of whether 0W20 is better than 5W20 synthetic engine oil, the main reason 5W-20 or 0W-20 engine oil is specified for your engine is to improve fuel consumption and thereby meet regulations such as the CAFE (Corporate Average Fuel Economy) or EURO emissions.

CAFE is the combined average fuel economy of all of a vehicle manufacturers product line. Minimum CAFE

Do you know when to change synthetic motor oil?

The widespread use of synthetic lubricants have many people confused as to when to change synthetic motor oil. Oil chemistry and engine technology have evolved tremendously in recent years, but oil change intervals are still on the conservative side. Driven by an outdated 10,000KM oil change commandment, consumers are still spending millions and spilling an ocean of contaminated waste oil.

How different synthetic oils are made.

Ever wondered how different types of synthetic oils are made?

In the 1930s, Dr. Hermann Zorn of Germany found out how synthetic oils are made while searching for a lubricant with the properties of natural oils derived from crude oil but without the undesirable properties (high pour points, tendency to gum or gel in combustion engines, low oxidation resistance at higher temperatures, etc.).

Germany was also in need of a product that was not derived from crude oil, as the nation’s access to crude oil
