Semi-synthetic engine oil


Semi-synthetic oil has properties very similar to those of synthetic oil. We should also realize that the added synthetic base oil may range from several to 50%, while the rest of the semi-synthetic oil is a mineral oil completely unsuitable for engines operating in extreme conditions.

Semi-synthetic oils provides for much improved protection compared to the mineral oil.

When and which oil should be used?

When choosing the right engine oil, you must first of all pay attention to manufacturer's recommendations, which were in the vehicle owner's manual. Remember that you can apply the oil with better performance, but absolutely should not use the worse one.

For new engines, synthetic oils should be used, preferably tested in any sports car, because they ensure a high protection of the engine, and are also resistant to extreme operating conditions. At a time when our engine has a nice course, we can use any synthetic oil, which is recommended to our car.
We can also replace synthetic with semi-synthetic oil, but only after the verification of the engine in a specialized workshop with great knowledge about the quality and production of engine oils.
Semi-synthetic provides a much better engine protection than mineral oils.

Proper operation of the engine >> What can I do to improve engine performance?

Keep in mind that to maintain the engine in good condition, it is not enough to use the oil. It should be more systematically complement, as well as cyclically exchange.

On a semi-synthetic oil you will definitely save a lot, because it is much cheaper than synthetic, and also guarantee engine protection at an appropriate level. It will provide intermediate solution that enables impressive operation of the car and you will not need to incur excessive costs. We should remember that only when the engine has high mileage and wear is already very visible, then we can go on a semi-synthetic oil.
Note also that there are many cars with mileage of 500,000 km and more, which use synthetic oils with appropriate specifications and are still in excellent condition.

The effects of improper oil selection >> What happens when improperly will selectsemi-synthetic engine oil?

When choosing oil for your engine, remember that its condition and consumption over the next few years depends on it. Untimely oil change may result in wear of turbocharger, rotation the crankshaft bearings, as well as to accelerate damage to any components. This can be avoided by replacing the oil in a suitable time, during, or after driving approx. 10 -20 000 km in dependence on operating conditions (traffic jams in cities, highways, heavily loaded cars). At the time of purchasing oil, pay attention to the viscosity/specifications.
Oil Specifications for our car should be stored in the vehicle owner's manual, as well as in the catalogs of the largest manufacturers of engine oils.

Oil viscosity is determined by symbols such as 5W30, 10W40, 10W60, that describes how it reacts to temperature changes. Specifications tells us what supplements have been used in the oil, the oil is compatible with the catalyst, DPF, FAP used in our car.

It is labeled as: LOW SAPS C1, C2, C3, C4 or A1/B1, A3/B3, A3/B4, A/B5
