Synthetic oils are a lubricant made up of artificial chemical compounds which are further processed and refined to eliminate contaminants that may exist in conventional engine oil. This causes them to be more durable and withstand increased heat better than their conventional counterparts. Contact 49 North Lubricants or refer to your machinery’s owner’s manual for more information about which type of engine oil is right for you.
Generally, heavy-duty engines will usually require a higher viscosity grade than passenger car engines. Heavy-duty engine oil is designed to combat soot and increase the oil drain intervals required for heavy-duty engines. In order to accomplish this, heavy-duty engine oils contain an increased amount of detergent and dispersant additives versus passenger car oil.
The grade of oil available from 49 North Lubricants generally refers to the viscosity of the product. The numbers in the viscosity designation (ex. 10W-40) refer to the resistance to thinning and thickening in the particular grade of oil. If you seek more information regarding engine oil viscosity and which grade is best for your machinery, feel free to contact 49 North through telephone or our website. However, the best way to determine which engine oil you require is to consult your owner’s manual.
Generally, for personal automobiles, the oil should be changed twice a year or every 5,000 to 7,500 km. However, there is no definitive answer to how often your engine should have its oil changed. The answer will depend on the type of vehicle you are operating, how often you drive it, and the type of oil you use. Consult with your owner’s manual or feel free to ask us for help determining when you should change your engine’s oil.
49 North Lubricants engine oil meets all current ILSAC and diesel standards as defined by the American Petroleum Institute (API). Vehicle owners should refer to their owner’s manuals for the specific grade of oil required. Oils may have more than one performance level. For automotive gasoline engines, the latest ILSAC standard (GF-6A and GF-6B) includes the performance properties of each earlier category (GF-5, GF-4, GF-3, GF-2, GF-1) and can be used to service older engines where earlier category oils were recommended. For automotive gasoline engines, the latest API Service Category (SP) includes the performance properties of each earlier category (SN, SM, SL, SJ) and can be used to service older engines where earlier category oils were recommended. For high-speed four-stroke cycle diesel engines, the latest API Service Category (CK-4) includes the performance properties of each earlier category (CJ-4, CI-4, CH-4) and can be used to service older engines where earlier category oils were recommended.
