  • TAG : New Diesel Oil Standards & Viscosities

  • Growing with the times and Indian automotive industry, Castrol, which was launched in 1986 in India to meet the requirement of the new generation Maruti Suzuki cars launched at the time, has grown manifold. It has now come up with a new engine oil—the GTX Modern Engine that claims to provide high levels of protection for engines with features such as turbocharging, catalytic converter and multi-valve systems.

    In anticipation of new lower engine oil viscosity grades, to avoid confusion with the "winter" grades of oil the SAE adopted SAE 16 as a standard to follow SAE 20 instead of SAE 15. Regarding the change Michael Covitch of Lubrizol, Chair of the SAE International Engine Oil Viscosity Classification (EOVC) task force was quoted stating "If we continued to count down from SAE 20 to 15 to 10, etc., we would be facing continuing customer confusion problems with popular low-temperature viscosity grades such as SAE 10W, SAE 5W, and SAE 0W," he noted. "By choosing to call the new viscosity grade SAE 16, we established a precedent for future grades, counting down by fours instead of fives: SAE 12, SAE 8, SAE 4."

  • You simply pour in one can for every 5-6 quarts of sump capacity (one can is sufficient for most passenger cars & light trucks, with the exception of diesels), and let the engine idle for about 15 minutes then drain the oil and remove the filter while the oil is still warm. Do not drive the vehicle with the engine flush installed. If you have an extremely dirty or high mileage engine then we recommend installing a new engine oil filter prior to adding the flush so that you have full capacity of the filter available for capturing and holding the dirt particles that the flush removes. AMSOIL's Engine Flush is a detergent based flush with some kerosene and other petroleum distillates that act as the carrier for the flushing and cleaning agents. The detergent used is a 2-butoxyethanol, glycol ether and is essentially a very concentrated form of the detergents used in motor oil.

    Typical city driving often involves starting and stopping continuously thanks to congested traffic conditions. This sudden stop-start style of driving takes a toll over the engine, increasing wear and tear and reducing engine life. Castrol has developed an all-new special engine oil for this problem.
