Cleanest Pistons With Pennzoil Ultra Platinum™
Pennzoil Ultra Platinum Full Synthetic Motor Oil with PurePlus Technology keeps pistons cleaner than any leading synthetic oil: up to 35% cleaner than Valvoline SynPower.1 It also keeps pistons up to 50% cleaner than required by ILSAC GF-5.2
Why is the complete protection of all the parts of your engine so important? When pistons get dirty, their friction increases which causes the mechanism to work harder to maintain quality performance. The more friction, the more wear and tear on the parts. Dirty pistons also decrease output, this increases fuel consumption as the mechanism tries to compensate.
Keeping your pistons clean and well lubricated will increase fuel efficiency and overall performance.
