How do Total lubricants increase engine life?

Total Lubricants can increase the life of your engine and help you cut down on repairs. There are three main ways Total makes this happen :

  • Engine Cleanliness
    A dirty engine has reduced life with a tendency to fail earlier. Contaminants and particulate matter hinder the smooth running of an engine, causing wear and corrosion.
  • Engine Wear Protection
    Total Lubricants reduce engine wear by providing a steady film of lubricants between all of the moving parts. This cuts down engine wear as moving parts no longer abrade and wear each other down through friction. This reduced friction also helps keep the engine cool.
  • Exhaust Aftertreatment System Protection
    Total Lubricants are cleaner and produce less particulate pollution. This helps protect the exhaust’s aftertreatment System.

How do Total Lubricants Adapt to Extreme Temperatures?


Total Lubricants are formulated to resist extreme weather conditions.

  • Control of Pumpability
    In cold weather, engine lubricants can become more viscous. Inferior engine lubricants may become too thick to pump freely, preventing them from working effectively. Total Lubricants retain their low viscosity even in very cold weather.
  • Control of Fluidity
    In hot weather, engine lubricants can have an increased fluidity. Lower-quality lubricants may fail to provide protection for your engine as they lack sufficient viscosity to coat all the moving parts. Total Lubricants are formulated to retain an optimal level of viscosity even during the hottest of days.
