UMW Grantt International Sdn Bhd on Tuesday launched its latest addition to its product lineup, the Grantt Stellar 8000 SAE 0W-20 API SN Plus fully synthetic engine oil formulated with “Knock Guard” technology for low-speed pre-ignition (LSPI) protection.
The company stated that such a technology in the Stellar 8000 SAE 0W-20 delivers the ultimate protection, performance and fuel economy in turbocharged gasoline direct injection (TDGI) and gasoline direct injection (GDI) engines, providing users with LSPI protection, cleaner engines and better fuel saving.
“This is the first (lubricant) in Malaysia that will provide users with LSPI protection, cleaner engines and better fuel saving. With more car manufacturers developing engines which are increasingly smaller, more efficient, more advanced and at the same time more powerful; this also creates more extreme operating conditions, especially for TGDI engines. This makes today’s engines more susceptible to LSPI, which causes internal engine damage leading to engine failure. The Grantt Stellar 8000 SAE 0W-20 was engineered with this in mind to give drivers outstanding LSPI protection.”
LSPI is when early combustion occurs before normal spark-initiated combustion takes place. LSPI can cause severe damage to a vehicle’s engine, and is one of the most challenging factors in engine technology today.
The company also claimed that Grantt Stellar 8000 SAE 0W-20 delivers more than 80% better engine protection against wear and tear. With its unique antioxidant additives to control oil thickening, the formula results in better flow to critical parts throughout the oil drain interval. This offers protection during cold engine start at low temperatures, while retaining viscosity benefits at higher temperatures and operating conditions. Its advanced dispersant and detergent system help to prevent sludge formation and varnish deposits for cleaner and efficient engine performance. Combined with the low viscosity oil, users can expect extra fuel savings.
In conjunction with the launch, Grantt also introduced other new solutions:
Grantt Quasar SAE 10W-40 API CI-4/SL (7 litres). It is a synthetic blend grade on top of the current SAE 15W-40 API CI-4/SL mineral grade currently offered in the market.
Grantt Automatic Transmission Fluid (Grantt ATF CVT) (4 litres).
Grantt Automatic Transmission Fluid (Grantt ATF World Standard) (4 litres).
