Increasingly more people are turning to hybrid vehicles to reduce their environmental impact and save money on fuel costs. Most hybrid SUVs top 35 mpg, while most hybrid sedans exceed 45 mpg. That’s about 40% better than non-hybrids.
While hybrid vehicles offer excellent fuel efficiency, the internal-combustion engine (ICE) in a hybrid vehicle endures a unique set of challenges. Infrequent engine usage and increased stop/start activity place demands on lubricants not common in traditional ICE vehicles.
AMSOIL 100% Synthetic Hybrid Motor Oil is designed to solve those problems with purpose-built protection for the hybrid drive cycle, maximizing hybrid-engine life, efficiency and performance.
Infrequent engine usage and increased stop/start activity can accelerate engine wear in hybrid vehicles. Independent, third-party testing demonstrated that AMSOIL 100% Synthetic Hybrid Motor Oil provides up to 16% better low-temperature viscosity than Mobil 1,* delivering better protection at startup.A
Hybrid engines operate intermittently, making them especially vulnerable to corrosion. Infrequent use and reduced loading of the engine leads to lower engine temperatures that do not completely evaporate condensation, leading to rust, wear and decreased efficiency.
AMSOIL 100% Synthetic Hybrid Motor Oil is formulated with a boosted dose of inhibitors to help prevent condensation related corrosion and maintain optimal engine performance, while its elevated level of dispersants effectively manage water that enters through condensation.
