The product label offers information about the lubricant performances:
Fuel Economy lubricants are designed to provide maximum protection to vehicles' engines and enable major savings. TOTAL Fuel Economy range is used today in numerous types of vehicles (cars, heavy duty, etc.) and industrial machinery (agriculture, public works, etc.).
Viscosity index provides information on oil viscosity when submitted to temperatures variations. Multi-grade oil indicates a viscosity index at low and high temperatures.
5W stands for viscosity index at low temperatures. The lower the index is, the more fluid motor oil will be at low temperatures, which ensures optimal lubrication when starting the engine.
30 stands for viscosity index at high temperatures. The higher the index is, the more viscous motor oil will be at high temperatures, which enables better lubricating at high temperatures.
There are 3 different types of base oils which are used in lubricants manufacturing process :
Total Lubricants have multi-language labels. They thus provide customers with product description and customers benefits in most languages.
Here are indicated the lubricant technology (synthetic, mineral, semi-synthetic), the benefits for the customer and different applications.
Total lubricants meet international specifications as ACEA, API, JASO and ILSAC to ensure high technical performances. In addition, some OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) set up quality certifications to protect and optimize their engines' performances. These homologations are more stringent than international standards. The OEMs recommend the use of a specific motor oil (see your car maintenance guide).
