[su_expand more_text=”A:” less_text=”The oil properties gradually diminish during use and the number of impurities increase. Sufficiently frequent oil changes remove the impurities from the engine and replace them with high-performance oil. The additives in high-performance motor oil help keep the engine clean and prevent corrosion, resulting in less wear and longer engine life. In addition, high-performance oil keeps the engine and catalytic converter in good condition and the lubricating properties of the oil as good as those of new oil. This achieves cleaner exhaust gas emissions and lower fuel consumption” text_color=”#46672f” link_color=”#2a59c4″ link_style=”button” more_icon=”icon: thumbs-o-up”]Why are oil changes important?[/su_expand]
[su_expand more_text=”A:” less_text=”Consumption of thin oil is greater than that of thick oil. This is a general rule, but sometimes there are exceptions. For example, when changing the oil grade, consumption may be higher before the first oil change, and a new engine often consumes more oil than normal.” text_color=”#46672f” link_color=”#2a59c4″ link_style=”button” more_icon=”icon: thumbs-o-up”]Do some oils tend to have higher consumption than others?[/su_expand]
[su_expand more_text=”A:” less_text=”In addition to the mechanical condition of the engine, oil consumption is most affected by the viscosity of the oil used, the volatility of the base oil, the degree of filling and the manner of driving. Usually, thin oil is consumed faster than thicker oil.” text_color=”#46672f” link_color=”#2a59c4″ link_style=”button” more_icon=”icon: thumbs-o-up”]Which factors have an impact on oil consumption?[/su_expand]
[su_expand more_text=”A:” less_text=”Yes. Oils and greases contain small amounts of additives that will darken with exposure to sunlight, UV light, temperature or contact with air. The color usually changes to a brown or green tint. Since this color change is the result of oxidation of the additives, which make up a very small portion of the oil or grease, there would be very little, if any, functional change to the lubricant.” text_color=”#46672f” link_color=”#2a59c4″ link_style=”button” more_icon=”icon: thumbs-o-up”]The color of my oil has darkened compared to when it was new. Is it still OK to use?[/su_expand]
[su_expand more_text=”A:” less_text=”Synthetic motor oils are normally based on synthetic hydrocarbon, manufactured either from ethane gas through polymerization or a multi-phase refining and conversion process. As they are chemically hydrocarbon compounds, the same as mineral oils, they can always be used in place of mineral oils when the most high-class product is desired.” text_color=”#46672f” link_color=”#2a59c4″ link_style=”button” more_icon=”icon: thumbs-o-up”]What does synthetic oil mean?[/su_expand]
[su_expand more_text=”A:” less_text=”Oils which are made for the same purpose of use and meeting the same quality classifications can usually be blended, regardless of whether they are single- or multi-grade oils. However, blending of oils meant for different purposes of use – e.g., those for diesel and gasoline engines – is not recommended. Nonetheless, the best way to guarantee uniform quality is to use the same oil between oil changes.” text_color=”#46672f” link_color=”#2a59c4″ link_style=”button” more_icon=”icon: thumbs-o-up”]Can I mix synthetic with a conventional mineral oil?[/su_expand]
[su_expand more_text=”A:” less_text=”The ash deposits (or ash content) are the residue remaining after the oil is burned during operation. The ash is made up of metallic detergent additives, such as calcium, barium, and magnesium compounds.” text_color=”#46672f” link_color=”#2a59c4″ link_style=”button” more_icon=”icon: thumbs-o-up”]What is meant by the term “ash content” in natural gas engine oils?[/su_expand]
[su_expand more_text=”A:” less_text=”Zinc or Zinc diakyl di-triphosphate (ZDDP) is widely used as an anti-wear additive used in many types of hydraulic and engine oils to protect heavily loaded parts from wear. ZDDP is a last resort against metal-to-metal contact.” text_color=”#46672f” link_color=”#2a59c4″ link_style=”button” more_icon=”icon: thumbs-o-up”]What does zinc do in oil?[/su_expand]
