As multiple companies produce new and different kinds of motor oil, choosing the best synthetic oil for your commercial vehicle is a combination of manufacturing requirements, how well you want your vehicle to perform, and how much money you have. Using the right Synthetic Oil is essential for the proper functioning of the vehicle. Using the wrong type of oil can lead to premature wear and tear, decreased fuel efficiency, and other problems. It is critical to understand synthetic oil and how it differs from conventional motor oils in order to select the best one for your vehicle.
Synthetic Blend vs. Full Synthetic
Not all synthetic oils perform the same. There are synthetic blend oil and full synthetic oil. Synthetic blend oil refers to a mixture of conventional motor oils and synthetic base oil. Full synthetic oil is made up of a synthetic base oil blended with additives that improve the oil’s performance. Tata Motors offers a range of Synthetic Oil with different viscosity grades that can handle a wide range of operating conditions. It offers superior protection to the engine, gearbox, and other systems, and help in enhancing the overall performance of the vehicle under extreme pressures and temperatures.
Oil Change Intervals
You should change your oil every 5,000 kilometres if your vehicle uses mineral oil. However, if you use synthetic oils in a commercial vehicle that is eligible to use full synthetic oil, you can get longer oil drain intervals. Tata Motors includes full synthetic motor oils that support oil change intervals with a approx. of 80,000 kilometres.
The motor oil’s thickness at different temperatures is one of the most critical tests. The density goes up as the viscosity goes up. Synthetic oils work efficiently in high temperatures, but consider the OEM’s recommended maintenance practices regarding oil change. It will tell you what viscosity works with your vehicle, so if you’re doing an oil change at home, match the label.
API guidelines help in determining the quality of oil licenses. ILSAC’s current classifications are GF-6A and GF-6B, so you will want to ensure that whatever you buy fits those words.
