TVS Motor Company has launched a new fully synthetic engine oil called TVS TRU4 Synthetic 10W 30. The Hosur- based company claims that this oil meets Japanese Automotive Standards Organisation – JASO MA2 and American Petroleum Institute – API SL requirements.
The main characteristics of the TVS TRU4 Synthetic engine oil include smooth clutch operation, low temperature and longer service life. TVS TRU4 engine oil is available in 1 litre and 900 ml packs and has been priced at Rs 525 per litre. Each pack comes with a unique number and the consumers have the option to check if the oil is genuine by sending an sms - TRU4 space Unique no. to 9500444444.
TVS claims that the TRU4 synthetic oil uses an advanced formulation technology for extreme thermal conditions to establish superior thermal stability both at high and low temperatures. This technology also brings about preferential friction reduction, superior engine cleanliness and smoother clutch performance, leading to better ride comfort.
“Synthetic oil flows better in cold weather, making engine starts easier and offering better protection. In addition, synthetic oil resists viscosity changes at extremely high temperatures unlike conventional oil, which can break down or evaporate at such temperatures, causing damage to the engine. Synthetic oil is slicker than conventional oil and therefore enables smoother, cooler engine operation resulting in better power and better fuel economy,” said K Venkateswarlu, vice--president, parts business, TVS Motor Company.
