Beat the Heat With Pennzoil Synthetics

Beat the Heat With Pennzoil Synthetics

Pennzoil Synthetics are designed to handle high internal temperatures and added external heat from summer road trips.

Extreme temperatures such as summer heat can directly impact the performance of your motor oil. When motor oil is exposed to extremely high temperatures it can lose viscosity, or thin out. If this happens in your vehicle’s engine, the friction of the moving parts will be increased and can lead to long-term wear on your engine. High-quality, low-viscosity motor oils are engineered to provide protection in extreme heat since hot spots can occur regularly inside your vehicle’s engine any time of year. 

Certain hot spots inside your vehicle’s engine can generate some significant heat. For instance, the piston rings and skirt can reach more than 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Even more extreme, the combustion chamber can reach more than 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit, which is hotter than lava! 

Pennzoil Platinum® High Mileage Full Synthetic motor oils in SAE 0W-20, Pennzoil Ultra and SAE 5W-20, and SAE 5W-30 are designed to handle high internal temperatures, as well as the added external heat from summer road trips.

Pennzoil Platinum, Pennzoil Ultra Platinum and Pennzoil Platinum High Mileage are designed to handle the extreme high temperatures, have lower volatility and are less likely to evaporate. This means less oil loss so that the motor oil will stay at its designated viscosity grade and provide strong engine protection. They also have good oxidation stability and are resistant to oil break down when exposed to oxygen and contaminants. Oxidation due to high heat can create organic acids, sludge and varnish to form which thickens motor oil and can cause an increase in motor oil viscosity. Over time, oxidation will lead to engine wear and poor engine performance. Pennzoil Platinum Full Synthetic motor oils are also designed to protect modern engines that utilize direction injection and/or turbocharger engines. They offer low viscosity protection while resisting oil thinning, burn off and oil breakdown to protect and maintain engine performance. 

Pennzoil Full Synthetic motor oils are made from natural gas and are engineered for blending of modern SAE 0W-xx viscosity grade motor oils. Lower viscosity grades made with Pennzoil’s gas-to-liquid technology also positively impact fuel efficiency, provide outstanding performance in extreme temperatures and protect against engine deposits and wear. Low viscosity motor oils realize the fuel economy benefits inherent within the 0W grade motor oils while gaining the benefit of low oil volatility, extreme temperature performance and engine protection over the life of the oil drain interval. 

No matter where you are driving this summer, Pennzoil Full Synthetic motor oils are up to the challenge of protecting your vehicle’s engine, even on the hottest days.
