MOTOR OIL FAQ
Our dedicated fleet of delivery vehicles is employed for just that: ensuring the motor oil you require is available to you when and where you need it.
To eliminate contaminants that may exist in conventional motor oil, <b>synthetic oils</b> are further processed and refined. 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 motor oil is right for you.
Heavy-duty motor oil is designed to combat soot and increase the engine oil drain intervals required.
In order to accomplish this, heavy-duty motor oil contains an increased amount of detergent and dispersant additives versus passenger car motor oil. Furthermore, heavy-duty engines will usually require a higher viscosity grade than passenger car engines.
Once again, in order to determine the correct motor oil for your machinery or vehicle, it is best to consult your owner’s manual. The grade of motor oil available from 49 North Lubricants 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 motor oil. If you seek more information regarding motor oil viscosity, feel free to contact 49 North through telephone or our website.
There is no definitive answer to how often your engine should have its oil changed. The answer largely depends on several factors, such as if you have a heavy-duty or passenger car engine, the amount you use the machinery, and the climate in which it is used. Generally, for personal automobiles, the motor oil should be changed twice a year or every 5,000 to 7,500 km. But once again, that will depend on the vehicle you are operating, how often you drive it, and the type of motor oil you use.

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.
