Petronas Engine Oil
The heat is on to use energy more efficiently
Modern engines are operating at higher temperatures than ever. With downsized, more compact engines running at incredible heats, and congested stop/start traffic increasing operating temperatures further, the conditions couldn’t be more challenging and hostile for an oil.
Excessive heat is the enemy, causing deposit formation, oxidation and thermal breakdown – all of which reduce the efficiency of the engine.
Wasting energy generates even more heat
Most internal combustion engines (ICE) only convert around 35% of fuel into power.
The remaining energy is not converted into useful work, but instead wasted, dissipated mainly as heat. This doesn’t just damage a car’s engine – wasting energy in this way is unsustainable for our planet.
By more efficiently lubricating moving parts to reduce friction and therefore heat, Petronas Syntium with CoolTech+TM technology cuts emissions and fuel consumption by up to 3%, (Based on industry standard test SEQUENCE: VIE, against the API SP limit) for cleaner, more cost-effective and efficient motoring.
Constantly switching between ICE and an electrical power unit places greater demands on the engine of a hybrid car – and its oil. By reducing heat generated
by frequent stop/start friction, Petronas Syntium with CoolTech+TM technology provides up to 38% better bearing wear protection (Based on industry standard test SEQUENCE: VIII, against the API SP limit) to deliver optimal performance, better fuel economy and less emissions.
Thanks to its strong oil chains, Petronas Syntium with CoolTechTM technology more effectively removes heat generated by friction and combustion to offer outstanding oxidation resistance – 68% better than industry benchmark (Based on industry standard test SEQUENCE: IIIH, measured against the API SP limit) This maintains performance right up to the scheduled oil change, protecting the efficiency and performance of your engine.
Its superior ability to withstand engine-damaging heat and stay cool means Petronas Syntium with CoolTechTM technology delivers up to 37.8% better protection of critical parts against harmful deposits and wear (Based on industry standard test SEQUENCE: IVB, measured against the API SP limit) and outstanding cleanliness,
for longer engine life and lower maintenance costs.
