Are Motul engines oil worth it?

Recommended Posts

Not all engine oil are made equal. Which happens if the fuel in the combustion chamber is not completely burned? Also the answer to this question is the source of some breakdowns, i.e. the fuel continues to flow to the crankcase. In fact, it flows down into the crankcase through the piston skirt, where it mixes with the oil of the engine.

There are a number of effects once this anomaly occurs. One of these is the washing of the liner walls, the piston skirt and the pieces, which suggests that the fuel cleans off the wax, leaving the area unlubricated and polishing the liner walls.


While this may sound like everything has been given a great cleaning, nothing could be further from the truth: in fact, the lack of lubricant means that the surfaces are rubbing against each other, causing wear. Once polished, holding the lubricant in the area is more difficult for the liner, which can result in faults like grabbing the piston and the liner itself.


Oil dilution

Another fuel leakage effect in the crankcase is the dilution of oil. This causes the lubricant to lose viscosity, which means that the films formed are weaker and less able to withstand high loads that may occur at certain points, such as rod bearings and crankshaft areas.

What if the viscosity gets too low? This causes contact between the metal surfaces, resulting in rapid friction wear of the bearings.

Biofuel is associated with a third effect of fuel passing through the crankcase. All diesel and gasoline actually contain biofuels in their mixture (in the first case biodiesel and in the second case bioethanol).

As the fuel in the crankcase is subject to high temperatures, some of it evaporates, resulting in the accumulation of the portion of biofuel in the case of diesel fuel.

As a result, the lubricant and fuel mixture's viscosity increases, and the wear on the bearings will dramatically speed up.

Direct Injection Engines Have a History of Oil Dilution Problems

There are numerous benefits of direct injection. The powertrain control module will show more control over the fueling by injecting fuel directly into the tank. Placement and control yields more performance and lower emissions, but there may be downsides as with any technology. Some are irritating, such as a sooty exhaust tip, while others, such as low-speed pre-ignition, can cost you a motor.

"Simply put, direct injection engines produce higher levels of dilution of fuel in the motor oil, causing specific problems."

Modern motor oils contain high levels of detergents dependent on calcium. Such calcium detergents help to save fuel, avoid corrosion, and clean the engine. These same calcium detergents, however, also increase the risk of an irregular occurrence of combustion, also known as low-speed pre-ignition. LSPI events may damage an engine, resulting in the reformulation of motor oils to reduce the potential for LSPI to occur.

Start using Motul 8100 X-CESS


You can find Motul 8100 at these workshops in Singapore.

It is specifically designed for powerful and recent cars fitted with high displacement engines, gasoline direct injection and turbo Diesel and catalytic converters. Numerous car maker approvals make this product a multi-purpose and is especially recommended when the car is under . Suitable for leaded or unleaded gasoline, diesel fuels and LPG. The OPEL/GM diesel LL B-025 standard requires two main properties to the lubricant such as high HTHS and very low volatility to drastically decrease oil consumption. Motel 8100 X-cuss 5W-40 is especially recommended for OPEL 2. 0 and 2. 2 DTI engines (extended drain interval by computer on board). The ACEA B4 performance requires an outstanding detergent/dispersant power and a better viscosity increase resistance due to soot produced by direct Injection diesel engines (except VW unit injector engines that require MOTUL Specific 505. 01 5W-40). The MB 229. 3 standard is more stringent than 229. 1 in terms of ageing resistance (extended drain interval by computer on board ), detergent/dispersant power (ACEA B4) and requests fuel economy performance where 1. 2 percentage fuel economy improvement versus a 15W-40 reference.

Protect your engine with the easiest and least expensive fix.

Start with the easiest and least expensive fix. Use a cleaner for the fuel system like MOTUL Fuel System Clean Auto.


You can now get this at Lazada.sg.

Motul Fuel System Clean is a complete fuel system cleaner designed to be used in all types of gasoline engines with injection or carburettors, naturally aspirated or turbocharged with or without catalytic converter, It effectively cleans dirtying and clogging which appear in the whole fuel system. It provides a perfect lubrication during cleaning process and prevents removed micro-particles from depositing.
