What is the difference between synthetic motor oil and conventional motor oil?
Conventional motor oil is a lubricant that is directly derived from crude oil. Synthetic motor oil, however, is one that is processed and refined even further in order to eliminate any remaining contaminants. This results in motor oil that is more durable and can withstand increased heat, as compared to its conventional counterparts. You can opt for full synthetic motor oil or even a synthetic blend motor oil.
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.
What is the difference between heavy-duty motor oil and passenger car motor oil?
Heavy-duty motor oil is designed to combat soot and prolong the drain intervals required for the engine. Due to this, heavy-duty motor oils require more detergent and dispersants, as opposed to the regular passenger car motor oil. Additionally, viscosity grades are also much higher in heavy-duty motor oils.
What grade of motor oil should I purchase?
It is important to remember that the grade of motor oil refers to the viscosity of the product. The numbers in the viscosity designation (ex. 10W-30) refers to the resistance to thinning and thickening in the particular grade of motor oil. In order to determine the correct motor oil for your machinery or vehicle, the best thing to do would be to consult your owner’s manual.
How often should I change my motor oil?
This depends largely on a number of factors, so there is no conclusive answer to how often your engine should have an oil change. Some factors to consider include: whether you have a heavy-duty or passenger car engine, the frequency of use, as well as the climate in which it is used. Feel free to contact us at 49 North to find out more about which motor/engine oil is right for you.
Does your motor oil meet API specifications?
The API, or the American Petroleum Institute is the largest U.S. Trade Association that represents all aspects of the oil and gas industry, establishing and maintaining standards for companies. 49 North Lubricants motor oil currently meets all ILSAC and diesel standards established by the API.
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), while the latest API Service Category (SP) includes the performance properties of each earlier category (SN, SM, SL, SJ). 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). Current and latest standards can be used to service older engines where earlier category motor oil was recommended. However, vehicle owners should always refer to their owner’s manuals for the specific grade of motor oil required, since motor oil may have more than one performance level.
What are the types of engine oil?
Your engine oils are available as conventional, synthetic blend, or full synthetic. These categories are based on quality. But what is really the difference between them?
The most common difference is the type of base oil used in the blending process. The American Petroleum Institute (API) classifies base oils into five major groups. These groups are based on the level of saturates, sulfur, and viscosity index. Conventional oils are sometimes called mineral oils and are made up of base oil from Group I and II as set by API classifications.
Synthetic blends are made from a mixture of conventional and synthetic base oils. This process means there are some benefits of a synthetic product but with a lower cost. The issue with synthetic blends is there are currently no regulations in North America that state how much synthetic base oils must be used. They could be as little as 1% synthetic base oil to be called a synthetic blend. Higher quality synthetic blends will use 20 to 40% synthetic base oils but you won't be able to see that information on the label
Synthetic oils are chemically engineered to have fewer impurities and better properties for higher performance. Full synthetic oils offer better start-up protection during cold weather winter months, as well as better heat resistance, and enhanced durability when compared to a conventional product.

Which oil is best for my engine?
The first step in choosing which oil to put in your car would be to check with your vehicle manufacturer or vehicle owner’s manual, as each type of engine is made to work with a specific type and grade of oil. Since motor oil changes in viscosity depending on the temperature, the climate is also an important factor to consider. Feel free to contact 49 North for more information regarding the type of motor oil to use for your engine.
