Synthetic Oil Basics
Technically, Synthetic Oil originates as traditional mineral based motor
What separates the two is the level of advanced engineering, refinement and
criteria that goes into this modern engine lubricant.
In short, there is no other routine maintenance contributor that can
provide better protection, performance and longevity than today's Synthetic
Extreme Weather Protection:
Under early morning sub-zero winter starts or summertime high temperature
stop-and-go traffic, Synthetic Oils are engineered to deliver vital engine
protection and reliable performance year-round.
Cold Weather Pour Test:
In this laboratory test, a Synthetic-Oil and a Synthetic-Mineral-Blend have
been frozen overnight at minus 40 below.
This pour test illustrates conclusively the cold-start readiness of
Even after six minutes, the blended oil can't keep up.
And, those white globs you see are wax - a standard component of
conventional mineral-based motor oil.
Clearly, Synthetic oil is the best way to ensure that your vital engine
components are adequately lubricated during cold cranking.
New & Old
With very few exceptions, Synthetic Oil is a wise choice for all new and
Modern engine components are built to higher tolerances and levels of
precision and the superior lubricating properties of Synthetic Oil deliver
the finest day-to-day protection against wear.
Older-engines, performance-engines and power-plants-under-heavy-load can
all benefit from the advanced lubrication and low-abrasion attributes of
In all situations, engine seals and gaskets are protected and remain
pliable and effective.
All major auto manufacturers support and specify the use of API certified
lubricants and Synthetic Motor Oil meets and even exceeds all standards and
The advanced additives developed for Synthetic Oil help contribute to
cleaner and more efficient operation during the entire span of the
recommended oil change interval.
Factory Warranties remain intact, un-compromised and supported.
In any case, the best warranty is the one you never have to use and proper
routine maintenance is an effective way to achieve that long-term goal.
Always check your manual and adhere to the manufacturer's recommended
Today's Synthetic Motor Oil is fully compatible with traditional mineral
This means that you can safely upgrade to synthetic oil... or in a pinch,
switch back or partially top-up with conventional mineral oil.
When you factor-in a decrease in engine wear and fuel consumption,
upgrading to Synthetic Oil can add up to long term savings and better
performance throughout the life of your vehicle.
Ultimately, the goal is for fewer repairs, so that you and your car can
spend more of your valuable time on the road and not in the shop.
Since they were first commercially introduced in the mid seventies,
Synthetic Motor Oils have constantly evolved to serve the needs of motorist
and the cars they drive.
Today, there is no better choice than Synthetic Motor Oils for maintaining
engine reliability, performance and protection.
Canadian Tire has the selection, service and know-how to help you with all
your engine lubricant and maintenance needs.
Mercedes Million Kilometer Test
Mobil 1 put 1 million kilometers on a Mercedes-Benz engine then broke it
down to see how the fully synthetic motor oil did in leaving minimal
deposits and minimal wear on the engine, demonstrating how Mobil 1 will

...Motor oils are derived from petroleum-based and
non-petroleum-synthesized chemical compounds. Motor oils today are mainly
blended by using base oils composed of hydrocarbons, polyalphaolefins
(PAO), and polyinternal olefins (PIO), thus organic compounds consisting
entirely of carbon and hydrogen. The base oils of some high-performance
motor oils however contain up to 20% by weight of esters...
Lubricating oil creates a separating film between surfaces of adjacent
moving parts to minimize direct contact between them, decreasing heat
caused by friction and reducing wear, thus protecting the engine...

Regular Oil vs Synthetic Oil -EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/
Lately I've been seeing a lot of posts over at the forum talking about
switching to synthetic oil with less than ideal results. Instead of typing
out the same answer over and over I thought I would make this short video
to help explain my experiences with synthetic oil. I'm not saying
synthetic oil is bad, in fact it has it's place but my opinion is that
place is not in your 15 year old Toyota or Chevy. The reasons as explained
in the video are that synthetic has different flow characteristics and can
actually cause your engine to leak oil and run noisy. It's perfectly OK to
run conventional oil of the correct viscosity and change it on a regular
basis. You don't need to spend the extra money on synthetic oil if your
owners manual does not call for it.
I look forward to your comments on this.

NEBROK M1 vs SHELL FERRARI vs ROYAL PURPLE XPR E PAKELO KRIPTON
ABBIAMO EFFETTUATO QUESTO TEST ESTREMO SU QUESTI OLI SUPER PERFORMANTI
TRA I MIGLIORI IN COMMERCIO -- SENZA NULLA TOGLIERE A NESSUNO E SENZA
DENIGRARE I PRODOTTI,CHE ESSENDO DI DIVERSA GRADAZIONE E TIPOLOGIA HANNO
RISPOSTO IN MANIERA DIVERSA A QUESTO TEST PARTICOLARE SU FRIZIONOMENTRO.
PAKELO KRIPTON RACING 10W60 -- SHELL HELIX ULTRA 10W60 (Ufficiale ferrari e
ROYAL PURPLE XPR RACING 10W40 -- NEBROK OIL M1 RACING 0W100.
COME GIA' SPIEGATO SUGLI ALTRI VIDEO,QUESTO MACCHINARIO SI CHIAMA
E SERVE A TESTARE OLI LUBRIFICANTI E GRASSI GLI UNI CONTRO L'ALTRO.
Abbiamo iniziato il test con il Pakelo Kripton Racing
10w60,consigliatissimo su svariati siti,forum e
community,realmente un ottimo prodotto come da risultati evidenziati dalla
Il prodotto ha dato discreti risultati con i pesi messi,fino a 10 kg,dopo
di che con l'aggiunta
del terzo peso da 5 kg si e' bloccato.
Appena finito abbiamo testato lo Shell ultra helix 10w60 che e' l'olio
ufficiale della ferrari e della maserati.
Appena messi i 5 kg il prodotto ha reagito benino,appena aggiunti altri 5
kg di peso per un totale
Di 10 kg,la friziono metrica si e' bloccata.Dando dei buoni risultati.
Dopo di che abbiamo testato il Royal Purple xpr racing 10w40,un prodotto
da piloti, il prodotto fino a 15 kg ha dato performance
notevoli,sicuramente superiori a pakelo e shell
dopo di che abbiamo tolto la coppetta e il prodotto ha cominciato a
soffrire e si e' sentito
nettamente l'attrito sul cuscinetto,una volta consumato il rullino anche se
soffrendo e con tanto di fumo
provocato dal forte attrito e olio bruciato il prodotto ha dato
ottime performance,arrendendosi solo di fronte al mostro Nebrok oil M1
Dopo di che abbiamo testato il Nebrok oil m1 racing,lasciando il rullino e
cotti,come da immagine. il prodotto ha dato eccezionali performance con
tutti i 15 kg,anche a secco e'
andato benissimo dimostrando tutta la sua qualita' altissime.
E senza soffrire il minimo attrito,non contenti abbiamo rimesso la coppetta
dell'olio motore e ci abbiamo
spruzzato addosso una vernice acrilica rossa,per dimostrare ai nostri
clienti,che nonostante tutto,il
prodotto e' andato benissimo ed e' riuscito a staccare e isolare la stessa
vernice dimostrando di avere
anche delle qualita' altissime di detergenza. E grippandosi solo dopo
asciugatura con un panno.

ENEOS SUSTINA PREMIUM OIL Part 2 of 2
ENEOS SUSTINA is the new line of premium motor oil created by JX Nippon Oil
Sustina is made with Nippon Oil's proprietary W BASE technology, producing
extremely high VI (viscosity index) synthetic base oil that maintains a
very stable oil viscosity over a wide temperature range. This technology
allows SUSTINA to remain very fluid at cold temperatures, reducing internal
engine drag and improving fuel economy up to 2% compared to currently
available fuel conserving GF-4 oils of the same viscosity.
SUSTINA also utilizes the sulfur-free characteristics of ZP additive
chemistry, reducing the formation of detergent destroying sulfuric acid,
keeping your engine cleaner and running longer.
AVAILABLE IN 5W-30, 0W-20, AND 0W-50 VISCOSITY GRADES.
