HOW DOES ENGINE OIL WORK?

The winners celebrate with Total's lubricants every day. The exciting victories that make our childhood dreams a reality. And then there are the daily victories, the ones that make us proud and pursue the challenges we face day after day.

Today, we will take you behind the scenes and reveal some of the secrets of Total Oil.

Due to their productivity, Total oils eliminate dirt, protect against wear and corrosion, act as sealants and reduce temperature, helping to increase productivity. Lubricants limit friction by facilitating the free movement of multiple mechanical parts that come into contact with each other.

In fact, Total brand lubricants make up 35% of the engine's cooling function.

For more than 100 years now, Total oils have been striving to innovate to extend the life cycle of the engine, protecting it from wear and corrosion to reduce fuel consumption, thanks to the special Fuel Economy oil specification, which optimizes vehicle maintenance expenses through less frequent oil changes.

By using Total oils, you take good care of all the key mechanical centers of the car - engine, transmission, brakes, boxes and axles.
… And working in the toughest conditions…

… For each market segment: light vehicles for transport, construction, agricultural machinery, drilling and mining, handicrafts, waterways and fishing.
