New Synthetic Engine Oil Promises Added Protection and Diesel Fuel Economy

| November 10, 2017

Engine Oil

A new fully synthetic engine oil is touting added protection and fuel economy. Called TOTAL QUARTZ INEO LONG LIFE 0W-20 with ART (Age Resistance Technology), it is formulated to meet the ACEA C5 international standards and technical requirements of manufacturers such as Volkswagen and Porsche.

The company claims it is “21% more efficient against sludge build-up  and 72% more effective against wear compared to the limits set by  ACEA.”

With TOTAL QUARTZ INEO LONG LIFE 0W-20 with ART, engines can operate at very high temperatures as well as pressures with limited oil oxidation and abrasion. This synthetic engine oil profoundly decreases engine deposits, NOx, CO2 as well as CO emissions, resulting in a cleaner engine and more importantly, cleaner environment.

TOTAL QUARTZ INEO LONG LIFE 0W-20 with ART is designed to meet the SAE 0W-20 viscosity grade requirement of European vehicles and is particularly purposed for use in the VW group vehicles, requiring the very specific VW 508.00/509.00 BLUE OIL standard, which despite its name appears green in the can.

If the drain intervals remain unchanged compared to the 5W-30 standard (VW 504.00 / 507.00), with 30,000 kms or an oil change every two years, TOTAL QUARTZ INEO LONG LIFE 0W-20 represents more fuel economy and better wear protection of the engine. Indeed, the criteria specific to Volkswagen are more severe.
