Does the oil have to be topped up?
To avoid any incident, it is advisable to check oil level in your vehicle engine on regular basis. It is normal that a small quantity of the oil circulating in the engine burns as a well running engine can consume between 0.2 and 0.5 liters of oil every 1000 km. However, successive top-ups can in no means replace a full oil change.
What are the advantages of using a high quality oil?
A good quality oil brings many benefits to the motorist:
- Better cold start ability and less wear on the engine (20 to 30% of engine wear is noted between the start and the optimum operating temperature of the engine);
- longer engine life ;
- reduced friction of moving parts and better engine performance.
How to assess the performance of a lubricant?
Product labels provide our customers with a significant amount of information on the performance of a lubricant. The API and ACEA performance, along with the approvals of manufacturer are indicated on the labels, help you to choose the most suitable lubricant for your vehicle.
What are the advantages of a multigrade oil?
Is it possible to store oil? will it deteriorate?
When stored in unopened, frost-protected containers and kept away from light and moisture at temperatures below 50 ° C, your oil will retain all its qualities and can be stored for 3 years.
However, opened containers should be immediately "closed" after use, taking extra care to avoid any pollution (dust, particles, solvents, water or other...). In that case, the storage period is one year.
Can I put the same oil in my gearbox as in my engine?
The answer to this question depends on the technology used. While some technologies allow the use of the same lubricant in the gearbox and in the engine, new vehicles require the use of specific products for each of these components.
It is therefore advisable to follow the manufacturer recommendations; your vehicle service manual will provide all necessary information.
Why should I change oil?
It is very important to change oil in order to keep your vehicle in top operating condition:
- because the lubricant collects internal and external pollution particles (carbonaceous materials, metallic wear particles);
- because the quality of oil is degraded by: dilution of water and fuel, oxidation, consumption of its additives, shearing.
It is necessary to refer to the vehicle service manual for further instructions on the oil change interval recommended by the manufacturer.
Is it possible to choose a different grade of viscosity when changing oil?
Yes, it is possible to choose a different grade of viscosity provided that the manufacturer requirements are met. The choice of viscosity will depend on the manufacturer requirements, the conditions of use of the vehicle, the environment, and climatic conditions.
It is essential to refer to the vehicle service manual to ensure that you are choosing the most suitable product for your car and the proper viscosity index.

What does a lubricant do?
If you own a vehicle, you probably know that the lubricant is critical to engine performance and condition as it helps in:
- cooling the hot spots of the engine and the moving parts;
- cleaning and protecting the engine components;
- reducing friction, i.e. facilitating the movement of all parts of the engine in every weather condition; and
- protecting the internal surfaces of the engine from corrosion.
Additives also contribute in this protective role, especially detergents, dispersants and all additives fighting against moisture and corrosion.
How to choose the most appropriate lubricant for my vehicle?
Our professional mechanics will be pleased to advise you on the most suitable lubricant to your vehicle. Their recommendation is based on several criteria, such as the manufacturer recommendations, the age of the vehicle, the type and power of its engine, the mileage and the conditions of use.
