How motor oil works ?


Victories are celebrated with TotalEnergies lubricants every day. Thrilling victories, that make our childhood dreams come true. And then there are the everyday victories, those that make us proud of pursuing the challenges we face day in, day out.

Today, we will take you behind the scenes and reveal some of the secrets of TotalEnergies lubricants.

Thanks to their performance, TotalEnergies lubricants remove impurities, protect from wear and corrosion, act as sealing agents and reduce temperature, making for greater output. Lubricants limit friction by facilitating the free movement of multiple-mechanical parts that come into contact with each other.

In fact, TotalEnergies lubricants alone account for up to 35 % of the engine cooling function.

For more than 100 years now, Total Lubricants has been innovating to extend the lifecycle of your engine by protecting it from wear and corrosion, to reduce fuel consumption thanks to a dedicated Fuel Economy range and to optimise vehicle maintenance costs, through less frequent oil changes.

By using TotalEnergies lubricants you are taking good care of all the vehicle's key mechanical centres - engine, transmission, brakes, boxes and axles

… And perform under the toughest operating conditions…

... for every market segment: from two-wheeled light vehicles to transport, construction, agricultural equipment, drilling and mining activities, leisure craft, waterways and fishing.
