Fuel Economy lubricants enable a reduction in polluting emissions per km/mile, they optimize the efficiency of vehicle post-treatment systems and prolong engine life due to engine cleanliness and anti-wear protection.
Proved fuel savings of 4,2% with latest lubricant Total Quartz Ineo First 0W-30
An approved lubricant
The ACEA defines a Fuel Economy lubricant as a lubricant in compliance with ACEA C1, C2, A5/B5, A1/B1 standards.
For this, it must successfully undergo an engine test (Test M111FE) in which the fuel economy is measured and established by comparison with the use of the reference mineral oil (RL191).
The ACEA C1 standard sets this value at 3%, the ACEA C2, A5/B5, A1/B1 standards set this value at 2.5%.
In 2008, 2.9 million PSA vehicles were on the road using TOTAL QUARTZ INEO ECS as their engine lubricant. In effect, this oil is used as the first-fill on the vehicle assembly lines.
What if we all used TOTAL Fuel Economy Lubricants?
With QUARTZ INEO ECS, the quantity of CO2 saved every year is estimated at 160,000 tons (basic estimation: in 2008, 2.9 million PSA Peugeot Citroën vehicles ran on QUARTZ INEO ECS as their engine lubricant. For an average distance covered of 14,000 km, petrol or diesel, the estimation is 160,000 tons of CO2 not emitted into the atmosphere by comparison with the use of a mineral oil). These 160,000 tons represent the equivalent CO2 absorbed by 2,000 acres of French forests or 1,450 acres of Brazilian forest.
