5 Things You Need to Know About Modern Engine Full Synthetic

Jan 29, 2018

Engines in vehicles 2012 and newer are built smaller and more efficient than ever. And as a result of that greater efficiency, these engines tend to run hotter, and they’re more susceptible to developing fuel and oil related carbon build-up – an issue that could lead to power and fuel economy loss and ultimately engine breakdown. As engines are transforming, so are the products used to maintain them. That’s why Valvoline developed Modern Engine Full Synthetic. Find out why you should use an oil made specifically for modern engines. 

01. Developed for engines 2012 and newer 

Compared to older engines, modern engines have decreased emissions, increased fuel economy, and increased horsepower. With these transformations come transformed maintenance. That’s why Valvoline developed Modern Engine Full Synthetic—to address the challenges that modern engines present and to provide superior protection to engines 2012 and newer. 

02. Exceeds industry standards

Developed with innovative motor oil technology, Valvoline Modern Engine Full Synthetic exceeds industry standards for protecting today’s engines from carbon build-up, wear, sludge, extreme temperatures, and more. 

03. Protects against carbon build-up 

Many manufacturers have adopted new technology, such as direct injection, to meet fuel efficiency standards. This advancement changes the way fuel enters the engine, which causes carbon build-up to occur during the fuel burning process. If ignored, carbon build-up can restrict airflow to the engine, which can lead to power and fuel economy loss and engine breakdown. Modern Engine Full Synthetic is formulated to fight carbon build-up in GDI, Turbo, and other newer engines.

04. Provides protection against oil oxidation and viscosity breakdown

Modern Engine Full Synthetic protects against oil oxidation and viscosity breakdown to extend engine life. Oil oxidation reduces motor oil’s effectiveness and leads to viscosity breakdown, which has a negative effect on engine efficiency. On top of lost efficiency, it causes deposits and sludge to form.

05. Protects against knocking and catastrophic engine failure caused by LSPI

LSPI (low-speed pre-ignition) is most common in newer turbocharged direct-injection engines operating under severe driving conditions. Modern Engine Full Synthetic protects against knocking and catastrophic engine failure caused by LSPI.
