Suzuki launches genuine engine oil ECSTAR in Philippines
Suzuki’s global genuine engine oil brand ECSTAR was launched in the Philippines over the weekend. Suzuki ECSTAR engine oils are now available at all Suzuki automobile, motorcycle, and marine engine dealerships and service centers nationwide.
For automobiles, two variants are available: the F7000 5W-30 semi-synthetic engine oil and the F9000 0W-20 fully-synthetic engine oil. The ECSTAR F9000 is available at all authorized Suzuki dealerships at PHP570 per liter (USD11.73). The ECSTAR F7000 is coming soon.
ECSTAR lubricants are said to be specifically for Suzuki engines and are said to enhance the already high performance and meet the severest fuel economy standards. At the launch, speakers said that the ECSTAR motor oil has the capability to extend engine life.
During the launch, the company extolled the main benefits of using ECSTAR lubricants for Suzuki vehicles:
- Fuel savings – the formulation meets the highest fuel economy standards for Suzuki engines. Vehicle owners can expect improvements in fuel consumption of up to 5%.
- Outstanding engine protection – the innovative lubricant technology is thermally stable, delivering the ultimate engine protection even during cold start-ups.
- Clean engine for longer life – the motor oil formulation extends engine life by preventing sludge and deposit build-up.
ECSTAR was designed for use in Suzuki automobiles, motorcycles, and even marine outboard engines.
A set of different formulations was made specifically for the high-revving, high-heat conditions that affect motorcycles. The R9000 10W-40 4T MA2 (990PH-21010-001) is perfect for Suzuki’s big bikes, but can also be used for underbone bikes and 4-stroke applications, and is priced at PHP550 (USD11.31) per liter.
