How to choose the right engine oil ADDINOL Expertise since 1936

How to choose the right engine oil
– fast, simple, safe
ADDINOL Expertise since 1936
Decisive for the choice are the operating instructions of your vehicle.
Under the point “engine oil” the manufacturer lays down which oil is allowed
to be used. Here the following details are given:
It began in 1936. In this year the mineral oil plant Lützkendorf
was founded in Krumpa. One of Germany’s largest refineries
for the production of fuel and lubricants developed.
‚ viscosity and SAE-grade
‚ specifications.
The specifications have different combinations of numbers and/or letters. These
combinations indicate the oil type. The respective information is also given on all
ADDINOL packaging and in this flyer. The combinations of numbers and letters are
easy to understand.
Viscosity – it describes the flow behaviour of the oil. Engine and transmission oils
are divided into SAE-grades (Society of Automotive Engineers). The flow behaviour
of the oil depends on the temperature. (In winter low viscosity oils SAE 10W or SAE
20W were used. In summer one changed to highly viscous oil in SAE 40 or 50.)
Modern multi-grade oils like ADDINOL Super Visco MV 1066, SAE 10W-60, are allseason oils. They lubricate reliably at all temperatures.
API – the American Petroleum Institute issues specifications for gasoline and diesel
engine oils as well as transmission oils based on strict testing methods. Class S is
valid for four-stroke engine oils (gasoline), T for two-stroke engine oils. The higher
the added letter the higher are the requirements on the engine oil. Class API TC+ is
a classification of lubricant manufacturers and means that the specification API TC is
outperformed; i.e. the performance level is between API TC and API TD. Transmission oils are divided into the specifications GL 3/GL 4 and GL 5 according to API.
JASO – the specifications of the Japan Automobile Standards Organization apply
above all to Japanese vehicles. The JASO specifications are classified into group
M for four-stroke engines and F for two-stroke engines. The higher the second
letter the higher are the requirements on the engine oil. At the moment the highest
requirement levels are: JASO MA for four-stroke engine oils and JASO MB (fourstroke engine oil fit for oil bath clutches) as well as JASO FD for two-stroke engine
oils.
ISO – oils for two-stroke motorbikes are also classified according to the guidelines
of the International Organization of Standardization – Lubricant in Europe. Here the
ISO-classes EGB, EGC and EGD are valid at the moment with ISO-L-EGD describing the highest performance.
Research and development were highly important from the
very beginning. In the 1980s the mineral oil plant Lützkendorf
had already become an international competence centre for
lubricants.
High-performance lubricants of the mineral oil plant Lützkendorf, like the engine oil ADDINOL Super, became a synonym
for quality and progress. ADDINOL – Additive in Oil – was one
of the most famous brands of the GDR. After the German Unification the company changed its name to ADDINOL.
The ADDINOL Lube Oil GmbH moved its headquarters to
Leuna in Saxony-Anhalt in 2000. Here ADDINOL develops
and produces high-performance lubricants of the new generation. Among these are motorbike- and automotive lubricants
for highest requirements with current approvals of leading engine manufacturers as well as pioneering developments for
industrial applications. ADDINOL engine and transmission
oils meet the highest specifications. ADDINOL offers the optimal product for almost every vehicle.
Customers all over the world benefit from the high and constant quality of the ADDINOL high-performance lubricants, our
know-how and the individual customer consultancy service of
the competent experts at ADDINOL.
