Meeting the requirements of popular new vehicles like the 2018 Toyota* Camry* and 2018 Honda* Fit*, new OE 0W-16 provides premium protection for this growing market.
Like the rest of the OE line, OE 0W-16 develops a strong fluid film that keeps metal components separated and protected. Our work didn’t end with simply blending a new viscosity. OE 0W-16 is formulated with unique anti-wear additives that protect critical engine parts like pistons and cams. This added protection is particularly important in the extreme environments produced by today’s smaller-displacement engines that run on lower viscosity oil.
OE Synthetic Motor Oil provides excellent wear control and protects critical engine parts like pistons and cams. This added protection is particularly important in the extreme environments produced by today’s smaller displacement engines that often run lower viscosity oil. Camshaft wear can result in poor valve timing, greatly reducing engine efficiency and leading to expensive repairs. The Peugeot TU3M Wear Test (CEC L-38-A-94), which must be passed to meet the GM* dexos1® Gen 2 specification, determines a motor oil’s ability to limit wear. For 100 hours the four-cylinder test engine is subjected to extreme, wear-inducing conditions. AMSOIL OE Motor Oil provided 47 percent more wear protection1 than required by the GM dexos1 Gen 2 specification.
1Based on independent testing of OE 0W-20 in the Peugeot TU3M Wear Test as required by the dexos1 Gen 2 specification.
2Based on zero LSPI events in five consecutive tests of AMSOIL OE 5W-30 Motor Oil in the LSPI engine test required by the GM dexos1 Gen 2 specification.
