How motor oil works
Victories are celebrated with Total lubricants every day. Victories, that make our childhood dreams come true. And then there are the everyday victories, that make us proud of pursuing the challenges we face in our daily life.
Now, we are going to take you behind the scenes and reveal some of the secrets of Total lubricants.
Thanks to their performance, Total lubricants are able to remove impurities, protect from wear and corrosion, act as sealing agents and decrease 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, Total lubricants alone stand for up to 35 % of the engine cooling function.
For more than 100 years now, Total Lubricants has been innovating to expand the lifecycle of the engine by protecting it from wear and corrosion, to reduce fuel consumption with a dedicated Fuel Economy range and to optimize vehicle maintenance costs, through less frequent oil changes.
With Total lubricants you are taking good care of all the vehicle's key mechanical centers - engine, transmission, brakes, boxes and axles… And perform under the hardest operating conditions… for every market segment: from two-wheeled light vehicles to transport, construction, agricultural equipment, drilling and mining activities and leisure craft.

Please note that all these are mainly recommendations. You should follow the steps carefully and remember that you are responsible for these actions. So, be sure that you have both necessary equipment and skills. If not, we suggest that you should address to a qualified mechanic so as to implement these operations. We also recommend that you recycle your used oil by taking it to an oil change center or a waste recycling facility. Any type of oil can be reused: car oil, motorbike oil, truck oil, tractor oil, boat oil and others. In recycling, do not mix different products such as brake fluid, coolant and engine oil. Each fluid has to be recycled separately. Even small quantities of coolant or brake fluid in used engine oil could disrupt or halt the recycling process.
