In a fast-paced automotive world, where downsized engines and hybridisation are becoming the norm, lubrication manufacturers must keep up.

Therefore, TOTAL Lubricants – the only integrated oil company which manufactures lubricants in the UK – is introducing a brand-new oil to their already extensive range, with TOTAL QUARTZ 9000 FUTURE FGC 5W-30.

The new TOTAL QUARTZ addition is specifically designed for today’s petrol engines, which use Stop-Start technology, smaller engine sizes, turbocharging and, in some cases, electrification to create a hybrid system. These new advances provide extra challenges for engineers. TOTAL QUARTZ 9000 FUTURE has a unique molecular makeup to reduce internal frictions on this new wave of engines, helping to offer both full power and significant fuel savings.

As with the entire TOTAL QUARTZ line-up, 9000 FUTURE uses TOTAL’s innovative Age Resistant Technology (ART). Due to the tremendously high operating temperatures and pressures in the current wave of petrol engines, ART is more important than ever. The advanced, highly charged, formula fortifies anti-oxidation properties of the engine oil and therefore offers ultimate protection against sludge formation and wear, both of which are a detriment to performance.

The new lubricant will benefit fuel economy, thanks to its premium quality elements, reducing environmental impact and helping customers to save money in the long run. The 5W-30 oil grade combined with special additives helps to make cold starts easier and the low phosphorus content prevents three-way catalytic converters from damage and reduces NOx, HC emissions and CO2 emissions.

At the heart of the QUARTZ range are OEM partnerships, with TOTAL being the oil partner to 22% of the UK’s car parc. With this in mind, TOTAL QUARTZ 9000 FUTURE has received several passenger car manufacturer approvals, including General Motors dexos1®Gen2, Ford WSS-M2C 946-A and Chrysler MS-6395. It meets or surpasses the technical requirements of many other American and Asian manufacturers too, plus it is backwards compatible with API and ISLAC sequences for older vehicles.

TOTAL QUARTZ 9000 FUTURE benefits from the far-reaching awareness of the TOTAL brand. Customers are willing to pay extra for premium lubricants with genuine and longer lasting engine qualities, from a supplier which still manufactures in the UK. This presents a profit-boosting opportunity for workshops.

Workshops will benefit from TOTAL’s global marketing and motorsport heritage, which includes being involved in Formula 1 since 1968 and racing team partnerships with Aston Martin Racing in the World Endurance Championship and 24 Hours of Le Mans and with Citroen in the WRC (World Rally Championship).

Combined with the largest worldwide field coverage through its expert sales and after-sales teams, from track to road, TOTAL QUARTZ is the winning engine oil. Trusted by the most demanding experts including top racers, car maintenance professionals, and by millions of drivers.
