Synthetic oils tend to be more durable and withstand increased heat better than their conventional counterparts. In order to accomplish this, synthetic oils are further processed and refined to eliminate contaminants that may exist in conventional engine oil. 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 your needs.
Heavy-duty engine oils contain an increased amount of detergent and dispersant additives to combat soot and increase the oil drain intervals required. Furthermore, heavy-duty engines will usually require a higher viscosity grade than passenger car engines.
In order to determine the correct engine oil for your machinery or vehicle, it is best to consult your owner’s manual. The grade of oil available from 49 North Lubricants varies in relation 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, 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 a number of 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 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 oil you use.
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.
