Motor oil is made from crude oil and is used to lubricate, clean, and cool engines. Types of motor oil include conventional, synthetic, diesel, bio-based, hybrid (blends of conventional and synthetic), and recycled oils. Motor oil varies in weight and viscosity, as well as additives that some manufacturers add to the oil during the refining process. A numerical code system created by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) grades motor oils according to viscosity--the higher the number between 0 and 60, the more viscous (thicker) the oil is. Most consumer motor oils are graded by two numbers, with the first number indicating cold weather (Winter or "W") performance.
This oil has a weight of SAE 15W-40, meaning it has an SAE viscosity rating of 15 in cold temperatures and a rating of 40 at normal operating temperature. Always check your vehicle's owner's manual to verify that this is the correct weight of motor oil for your vehicle.
Conventional Motor Oil
This oil is a conventional motor oil, meaning it is refined from crude oil or petroleum products. Conventional motor oils may or may not have additives included after refining. Conventional motor oils are more versatile than synthetic or hybrid motor oils, because they are suitable for use with nearly all types of modern vehicle engines, from cars and trucks to motorcycles, ATVs, farm equipment, and more.
Torco TD-1 MPZ 15w40 Super Diesel Motor Oil Bottle - 1 liter, (Case of 6) is designed for long drain intervals in engines using high sulfur fuels. It meets warranty requirements of American, Japanese and European diesel engine manufacturers. It has a high alkaline reserve (9-TBN) and corrosion inhibitors. The MPZ Super diesel protects bearings against acids formed during combustion of high sulfur fuels. The MPZ Super diesel Motor Oil is a blend of highly refined hydrocracked base oils and the most advanced detergents and dispersants plus Torco's MPZ friction and wear reducing additive. The low sulfated ash and superior anti-wear properties contribute to longer engine life, fewer oil changes and less waste oil. It is recommended for diesel engines using high sulfur fuels and is suitable for low sulfur fuel and gasoline engines. It is highly recommended for all turbo charged engines for the following specifications: CI-4/SL, CH-4/SJ, CG-4/SJ, CF- 4, CF-2, CE, S-3, MIL-L-2104D, MIL-L-2104F, MIL-L-4612E. It also exceeds the following: Mack T8E, T9, EO-M, EO- M Plus EO-L, EO-L Plus, EO-K, EO-K2 and T-7 / Cummins 20071 and NTC400 / Caterpillar TO-2 / Daimler Benz 228.1 / Volvo VDS-2 and VSD / Volkswagen 501.01 and 505.00 / Detroit requirements / European diesel ACEA E1- 96, E2-96, E3-96 / Allison C-4 torque fluid and heavy duty manual truck transmissions. It is not recommended for electro motive diesel engines with silver bearings or marine diesel that require extra high TBN.
