Total Lubrifiants announces new range of advanced synthetic lubricants
Total Lubrifiants has launched a new range of lubricant, made up of advanced synthetic lubricants. The TOTAL QUARTZ XTRA range optimises engine performance while protecting mechanical parts to improve longevity.
The low viscosity engine oil grades (0W-20 and 0W-16) of the new TOTAL QUARTZ XTRA range reduces friction inside the engine. As a result, using TOTAL QUARTZ XTRA generates fuel savings of up to 4%*, a performance that surpasses the specifications set by the ACEA** up to 33%*** in terms of fuel savings relating to the use of a lubricant. This is down to Total Lubrifiants’ Eco-Science technology. The antioxidant additives in TOTAL QUARTZ XTRA allow the lubricant molecules to maintain their performance over time and make the product more resistant to the physical and chemical degradation exacerbated by extreme conditions in the engine. This minimises oil oxidation while maintaining fuel savings and engine performance throughout the product’s lifespan.
The new TOTAL QUARTZ XTRA range is available for all engine types: TOTAL QUARTZ 9000 XTRA for vehicles without a particulate filter and TOTAL QUARTZ INEO XTRA for vehicles with a particulate filter.
Total Lubrifiants, a responsible energy company
Total Lubrifiants is contributing to the Total Group’s ambition to become the responsible energy major. Nearly 55% of the products in the TOTAL QUARTZ XTRA range carry the Total Ecosolutions label, which is certified by an independent body based on extremely rigorous specifications and manufacturing processes.
Some automotive manufacturers have already switched to this new range, including Aston Martin, which recommends TOTAL QUARTZ INEO XTRA DYNAMICS 0W-20 in after-sales.
