August 31, 2019—Total Specialties USA, Inc. announced the addition of new engine oil, called Total Quartz 9000 Future XT 0W-16.
The new engine oil is positioned to meet the needs of a market that is trending towards lower viscosities, according to a press release. Total Lubriciants will now offer it to the U.S. market as it gets ready to service applicable 2018 vehicles that require 0W-16 formulations.
The new engine oil is crafted to protect smaller turbocharged engines and delivers high fuel efficiency during complete drain intervals. It is a full synthetic, high-performance engine oil that offers quick starts even in cold temperatures and protects against LSPI (low-speed pre-ignition) that is found in newer engines.
“Total prides itself on cutting edge innovation and creating a product in the 0W-16 viscosity is an essential and innovative approach to the market trending towards lower viscosities. Total Quartz 9000 Future XT 0W-16 also positions Total to be ready when the new ILSAC GF-6B licensing process begins,” commented Christophe Doussoux, SVP Lubricants, Additives and Special Fuels of Total Specialties USA, Inc.
Official certification for GF-6B starts on May 1.
