The Dangers Of Mixing Mineral And Synthetic Motor Oils.

Understanding the dangers of mixing mineral and synthetic motor oils.

The dangers of mixing mineral and synthetic motor oils depend on the types of synthetic bases that were mixed with mineral bases. Polyalphaolefin and diester synthetic bases can be mixed with mineral oil bases, which is done regularly to create “blend” products.

Remember, modern engine lubricants are sophisticated products, formulated to meet the demanding lubrication requirements of modern engines.

Ways To Extend Motor Oil Service Intervals.

What are the best ways to extend motor oil service intervals?

There are many ways the average motorist can extend motor oil service intervals: From oil condition sensors to the relatively simple change to synthetic engine lubricant.

For many decades the motor industry considered 10,000 KM motor oil change intervals to be the best for proper lubrication. However with improved lubricants and developments in engineering 15,000Km is now the norm

What Is The Synthetic Base Oil API Group?

Do you know what the synthetic base oil API group is?

Before discussing the synthetic base oil API group it’s interesting to follow the history of synthetic oils: Dr. Hermann Zorn of I.G. Farben Industries in Germany actually began to search for lubricants with the properties of natural oils but without the tendencies to gel or gum when used in an engine environment.
