Engine Oils

Passenger Car Engine Oil


Every journey begins with trust. Trust that your vehicle will reliably take you from A to B. Recognizing the diversity of engines, we've designed a wide range of car engine oil products for different car types, including standard and synthetic engine oils. 

Our standard engine oil extends engine life by lubricating, cleaning, cooling, and protecting against corrosion. On the other hand, synthetic engine oil is crafted for sustained peak performance, maintaining optimal viscosity and film thickness at all temperatures. This results in superior engine protection, resistance to oxidation for a cleaner engine, and an extended oil life. 

Whatever the situation, Gulf engine oils ensure you're always in safe hands.

How to Read Engine Oil Viscosity Grades

How to Read Engine Oil Viscosity Grades

When choosing the right oil for your engine, it’s helpful if you can read and understand the engine oil viscosity grades. They consist of three parts and stem from the climatic conditions in which you’re driving.

For Multigrade car engine oils, the number before “W” indicates the oil’s viscosity characteristics at cold temperatures (commonly known as winter grades) and the numbers “YY” indicate viscosity characteristics at high temperatures (commonly known as summer grades). Multigrade engine oils can perform efficiently at both low and high temperatures for improved cold starting and to safeguard the engine respectively.

For Monograde engine oils, oil grades with suffix "W" are typically used in extreme cold conditions i.e SAE 20W. The engine oil without "W" are best used in the warmer climatic conditions i.e SAE 20. Temperature fluctuations have less of an impact on Multigrade oils than they do on monograde oils.

For example, for SAE 5W-30 viscosity grade, 5W represents the viscosity at low temperature (cold-start/winter) and 30 represents the viscosity at higher temperature (summer).
