Total Quartz Ineo ECS 5w-30
The distinctive feature of this engine oil is its reduced sulphated ash, sulphur and phosphorus content (Low SAPS). This quality is especially important for the good functioning of diesel particulate filters and other exhaust gas treatment systems. It is precisely these substances that leave harmful deposits on the filters, which block them and impair their function, thereby causing premature damage. It goes without saying that particulate filters are of little use under such conditions.
Therefore, using such systems requires a special composition of lubricants with reduced ash content. In addition, such oils are also less harmful to the environment themselves, and by ensuring the operability of the particulate filters, they reduce the emission of harmful substances into the atmosphere.
This lubricant can also boast of its ability to save fuel. According to the manufacturer, this level ranges from 6% when starting the engine to 3.5% while driving. For some people this figure will be lower, for others, it will be higher. It all depends on the individual characteristics of the vehicle, its operating conditions and driving style, as well as the properties of the fuel itself.
ECS stands for Emission Control System, a system designed to control the release of pollutants into the atmosphere. This system also adds to the eco-friendliness of the product. It reduces the amount of carbon dioxide and soot emissions into the atmosphere.
The rest of the product has excellent lubricating properties and a high level of protection against corrosion and the formation of harmful deposits, as well as protection against wear. Thanks to its cleaning and dispersing properties, perfect cleanliness is maintained inside the engine, which also helps reduce friction and prevents the premature destruction of parts.
Total Quartz Ineo ECS 5w-30 Features
The synthetic base oil itself indicates the high quality of the product. The distinguishing feature of Total Quartz Ineo ECS 5w-30 oil is its low sulphated ash content, which differs slightly from Total Quartz Ineo ECS 5w-30, but you can read about this engine oil here.
The claimed compatibility with environmental systems (especially DPF particulate filters) forced the manufacturer to perform expensive chemical processes in production.
For a similar reason, the content of phosphorus and sulphur components has been reduced. Despite the obvious benefits of these additives in normal oil applications, the listed additives form deposits in the filter systems and catalytic converters (if released into the exhaust system).
Total Quartz Ineo ECS 5w-30 Benefits
- Prolongs the service life of particle filters, and prevents them from clogging prematurely.
- Quartz Ineo ECS 5w-30 is a motor oil with a lower content of metal-containing additives than conventional oils.
- Fuel economy: up to 3.5%, in comparison with an ACEA-compliant reference engine oil (tested on a Citroen C4 1.6 HDi)
- Exhaust emission control system (ECS – Emission Control System): contributes to the reduction of CO2 emissions and soot particles.
- The low phosphorus content improves the efficiency of the catalytic converters and the exhaust gas recirculation system valves are less likely to clog, helping to reduce NOx emissions.
- Thanks to its detergent and dispersant properties, Quartz Ineo ECS 5w-30 engine oil meets all the requirements for servicing and operating PSA vehicles.
Total Quartz Ineo ECS 5w-30 Application
Total Quartz Ineo ECS 5w-30 engine oil has been developed to meet the requirements of Peugeot and Citroën engines. It is also suitable for the requirements of Toyota.
This lubricant can be used in all diesel engines, both current and previous generations. It is also suitable for most petrol engines.
Excellent on engines fitted with diesel particulate filters and other exhaust after-treatment systems to keep them clean and efficient and to extend their service life.
It can be used in all operating conditions, including the harshest ones, without losing its properties. It’s urban traffic – heavy and jogging, with frequent stops followed by traffic lights and junctions, with constant traffic jams. It’s motorway driving at maximum power and revs. It’s out-of-town driving, including trips to the countryside with not always good roads.
