Royal Purple Introduces New 0W-20 Motor Oil

Royal Purple announces the release of their new 0W-20 motor oil.  The introduction of this viscosity was prompted by Toyota and Honda recommending zero weight synthetic motor oil for a growing number of new models.  Lower viscosity oils are used to help improve fuel economy. 

Royal Purple 0W-20 exceeds industry standards and is an American Petroleum Institute (API) SN licensed motor oil.  It provides distinct performance advantages.

•    Synthetic defense against wear - Superior additive technology decreases metal-to-metal contact and exceeds the wear protection requirements of both dexos1™ and International Lubricant Standardization and Approval Committee (ILSAC) GF-5 specs.
•    Optimized fuel efficiency and ethanol compatibility – Its low coefficient of friction results in greater fuel efficiency. It also offers improved compatibility with fuels containing ethanol. Advanced additive technologies prevent white sludge and lubrication starvation that can occur with ethanol fuel, even at levels of 20% or higher.
•    Extended emissions protection - Patented ZDDP additive technology optimizes catalytic converter life.
•    Maximum corrosion protection - No rust was observed in standard industry corrosion tests.

Royal Purple SAE 0W-20 will be available at performance retailers this summer. Royal Purple recommends using their premium synthetic oil filter with the new 0W-20 for maximum protection against contamination.

  1. I love seeing things like this Royal Purple Oil that is trying to help improve fuel economy. Every since I took my economy I'm always looking for ways to help out in my every day life. Is this lower viscosity oil just for the newer models, or can it be used with older models as well?
