There are three types of engine oils:

Mineral oils

  • They are obtained from base oils directly extracted from crude oil and then enriched with chemical additives in order to improve their overall performance.
  • They are perfectly well-suited to everyday trips or journeys outside of the urban environment at reasonable speeds.

Semi-synthetic oils (or synthetic-based)

  • They are a blend of mineral oils and synthetic-based oils. They are perfectly well-suited to normal usage in urban environments or high-speed driving for all types of vehicles.
  • These oils are highly resistant to oxidation and can be recommended for extreme temperature conditions.

Synthetic oils

  • They are obtained through numerous refining processes or in laboratories using high-quality additives. Synthesising oils in this way has many benefits: the result is a high-performance lubricant that extends the life of your engine, improves engine protection, increases the intervals between oil changes and reduces friction – thus lowering fuel consumption.
