Synplus 0W/20 SP GF-6 is the ultimate full synthetic lubricant for engine protection and fuel efficiency in new and older petrol engines. It meets and exceeds the latest API SP specification, has ILSAC GF-6A fuel efficiency performance, is able to be used for older API petrol specifications, and has been particularly developed for vehicles requiring the thinner API 0W20 viscosity grade (such as some later model Subaru vehicles).
Synplus 0W/20 SP GF-6 is made using full synthetic base oils and specially selected additive systems; producing a low SAPS, high performance engine oil that combines the latest development in oil formulation and additive technology to provide lubricating oil with the highest level of protection.
Synplus 0W/20 SP GF-6 is suitable for petrol four stroke engines especially small turbo charged engines operating under moderate, severe, or varied operating conditions, such as low temperature start up, stop-and-go driving, and high temperature motorway driving.
In recent years manufacturers have developed smaller, higher output engines that also need to meet stricter fuel economy limits. Although smaller engines decrease vehicle weight and improve fuel economy, they also need better lubricants due to:
- Increased heat output – accelerates acid formation, nitration, and formation of deposits and sludge. These conditions degrade the oil and rapidly increase oil viscosity and decrease fuel economy.
- Increased engine pressures and speed – make it harder for the oil to maintain a lubricant film to prevent metal on metal contact. This metal on metal contact accelerates valve train wear.
- Low Speed Pre-Ignition (LSPI) – occurs in some turbo charged small capacity engines.
Synplus 0W/20 SP GF-6 is designed to meet all these challenges to the lubricating systems of modern engines.
