UMW Grantt International Sdn Bhd has launched the latest addition to its product line-up, Grantt Stellar 8000 SAE 0W-20 API SN Plus fully synthetic engine oil, formulated with KNOCK Guard technology to minimise engine knocking.
Grantt Stellar 8000 SAE 0W-20 engine oil offers better protection against engine wear, as well as better performance and higher fuel economy benefit in turbocharged gasoline direct injection (TGDI) and/or gasoline direct injection (GDI) engines.
“With more car manufacturers developing engines which are increasingly smaller, more efficient, more advanced and at the same time more powerful; this also creates more extreme operating conditions, especially for turbocharged gasoline direct injection engines. This makes today’s engines more susceptible to low-speed pre-ignition (LSPI), which causes internal engine damage and lead to engine failure. The Grantt Stellar 8000 SAE 0W-20 was engineered with this in mind to give drivers outstanding LSPI protection,” said Megat Shahrul Azmir Nordin, president of manufacturing & engineering division, UMW Corporation Sdn Bhd.
Grant Stellar 8000 fully synthetic blends are available in two other viscosity grades, SAE 5W-30 and SAE 5W-40.
In conjunction with the Stellar 8000 launch, Grantt also introduced a diesel engine oil, Grantt Quasar SAE 10W-40 API CI-4/SL, which comes in seven-litre bottles.
