It is crucial to select the appropriate engine oil for a motor vehicle thus insuring the maximum longevity of not only the internal components but additional apparatuses such as catalytic converters, diesel particulate filters.  Other environmental considerations such as a reduction in the carbon footprint by reducing fuel consumption together with the reduction of emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx) in combination with SCR (Selective Catalyst Reduction) - (Blue technology) must also be taken into account.

The safest selection is made by referring to the manufacturer’s handbook.

  1. Establish the model of the engine.
  2. Establish the ambient temperatures in which the vehicle will be driven and select the appropriate viscosity.
  3. The handbook will provide initially the international performance specifications such as the American Petroleum Institute (API) and the European Specifications (ACEA) followed on many individual performance specifications issued by the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM).
  4. If one finds oneself with the need to top up the engine oil level and no lubricant displaying the OEM specification is readily at hand it is safe to top up with with an engine oil display the matching ACEA and API specifications.
  5. Should you be carrying out a complete oil change on a vehicle that is still under warrantee is is advisable to select a lubricant that not only displays the recognised international standards but in addition the Approved OEM performance specification.  The approval process has its costs and this is reflected in the price of the oil, however, this assurance gives the user peace of mind.
  6. Complete oil changes carried out on vehicles that are out of warrantee should select products that not only carry the international specifications but also the OEM specifications which need not be approved if sourced from established trusted suppliers and manufacturers.

To aid your selection process we have grouped the engine oils we have readily available into 2 categories, namely those engines that are fitted with Diesel Particulate Filters (DPFs) often referred to as Low SAPs and oils formulated with conventional levels of sulphur and phosphorous additive levels.  


Once you have established the grade please contact our Sales Office for prices and availability.
