Why Engine Oils?
The primary function of engine oil is to reduce metal-to-metal contact resulting in less friction and wear. Friction generates heat, which causes more wear and tear on moving engine parts.
Engines change with age.
After 75,000 klm, it is even more important to choose the best oil to maximize the life of your engine. Valvoline MaxLife High Mileage 5W-30 Motor Oil is specially designed to fight the four major causes of engine breakdown:
It also minimises:
- Power reduction
- Increased fuel consumption
- increased Oil Consumption where you need top ups between servicing.

What makes synthetic oil different from conventional oil?
Additives added to the base oil are what give the oil the characteristics needed to do its job. Although additives are typically only 15 to 25 percent of the make-up of motor oil, they can impact a lubricant’s performance much more than the base oil.
High–mileage oils have ingredients to take care of older engines,Typically they use a viscosity modifier that is durable and won’t lose viscosity very easily. These oils need to stay thicker longer to protect engine parts.
The recommended frequency of oil changes varies from manufacturer to manufacturer and also sometimes between models
