Engine Oils

Flowing engine oil

Do you know that you can take your own oils when getting your vehicle serviced, even if it's under warranty - you just need to make sure that you buy oils which meet the manufacturer's (OEM) specifications. With such a bewildering array of oils and fluids available from RAVENOL it might not seem easy to choose the right one, but we're oil experts and are happy to advise.

The days of "one size fits all" engine oil are well and truly gone, and RAVENOL engine oils are developed to meet the specific requirements of the Vehicle Manufacturer. Our range may seem extensive but it’s a reflection of the multitude of different vehicle specifications in today’s market, because in order to meet the demands of modern engines and avoid damage or premature wear, you need to make sure you're using the right oils and fluids. Our advanced lubrication technology, which complies with internationally recognized quality standards, not only meets but often exceeds manufacturer specifications, as shown by the number of OEM and other approvals our engine oils have. RAVENOL’s patented USVO® and CleanSynto® technologies provide optimised lubrication and protection of critical moving parts, thus greatly extending the life of your vehicle and reducing costly repairs! With RAVENOL’s high performance engine oils, engines run smoother and cleaner, fuel economy and throttle response are improved, emissions are reduced and oil change intervals can be extended to the absolute maximum recommended by the vehicle manufacturer. So you can save money and help the environment, as well as giving your car the best oil it deserves!

Whatever you do, don’t take a chance on cheap, “one size fits all” engine oils as many of them aren’t approved and don’t meet the specifications they claim to. Neither should you trust garages that only stock one 5W-30 and use it on all cars that come through the workshop, regardless of the make, model or age. A quality garage will only use approved oils specific for the parts on your car, such as RAVENOL, so ask your mechanic to show you the brand – and more importantly, the approvals! If in doubt, buy your own oil from RAVENOL and insist that the workshop uses it. Using the wrong oil can negatively impact performance, oil and fuel consumption and the durability of your vehicle. Also, modern engines include parts such as diesel particle filters which are sensitive to incorrect lubricants and may be damaged, leading to costly repairs. RAVENOL products may cost a bit more than a supermarket brand but it will save you a lot more money in the long run – plus you’ll know you’re getting a quality, professional product you can trust. 

To find the best oil for your vehicle, first select the grade specified in the manufacturer’s handbook and then take a look at the approvals and recommendations on our product pages.
