Synplus 0W/20 SN GF-5 stands as the ultimate full synthetic engine lubricant, offering top-tier engine protection and fuel efficiency for both contemporary and older gasoline-powered engines. This exceptional oil not only meets but surpasses the latest API SN Plus specification and boasts ILSAC GF-5 fuel efficiency performance. It is also versatile enough to be used with older API petrol specifications. Furthermore, it has been specifically tailored to cater to vehicles demanding the thinner API 0W20 viscosity grade, such as some later-model Subaru vehicles.

Crafted from premium full synthetic base oils and meticulously selected additives, Synplus 0W/20 SN GF-5 results in a low-SAPS (Sulphated Ash, Phosphorus, and Sulphur), high-performance engine oil that seamlessly integrates the latest advancements in oil formulation and additive technology. This combination ensures that it offers the utmost level of protection for your engine.

Synplus 0W/20 SN GF-5 is well-suited for four-stroke gasoline engines, especially those with small turbocharged configurations, operating under various conditions. These include low-temperature start-ups, stop-and-go driving, and high-temperature motorway cruising.

In recent times, automakers have introduced smaller, higher-output engines to meet stringent fuel economy regulations. While these smaller engines reduce vehicle weight and improve fuel efficiency, they also demand superior lubricants due to several factors:

• Increased heat output: This leads to accelerated acid formation, nitration, and the buildup of deposits and sludge. These conditions degrade the oil, leading to a rapid increase in viscosity and a decrease in fuel economy.

• Elevated engine pressures and speeds: These conditions make it more challenging for the oil to maintain a protective lubricant film, potentially resulting in metal-on-metal contact and accelerated valve train wear.

• Low Speed Pre-Ignition (LSPI): LSPI can occur in some turbocharged small-capacity engines, posing additional challenges to lubrication systems.

Synplus 0W/20 SN GF-5 is thoughtfully engineered to address these challenges, ensuring that modern engines receive the optimal lubrication they require to perform at their best.


• Formulated with Full Synthetic Base Oils: Carefully crafted using high-quality synthetic base oils, this formulation extends the lifespan of the lubricant and delivers exceptional cold start-up protection.

• Tackles Low Speed Pre-Ignition (LSPI): Meets the demanding API SN Plus performance standard, specifically designed to combat Low Speed Pre-Ignition (LSPI) and mitigate timing chain wear in small turbocharged petrol engines.

• Resists Oxidation and Corrosion: Exceeds the API SN Plus oxidation requirements in the TEOST MHT Deposit Formation test, as well as the corrosion requirements in the Sequence VIII Bearing Weight Loss test and the Sequence VG Engine Sludge and Oil Screen Clogging test.

• Provides Superior Cam Wear Protection: Surpasses the API SN Plus Sequence IVA Average Cam Wear Limit by a significant margin, promoting a longer engine life with cam wear results of less than 20μm, compared to the API SN limit of a maximum 90μm cam wear.

• Ensures Excellent Emission Control: Complies with stringent modern emissions standards while enhancing the durability of emissions systems.

• Safeguards Catalytic Converters: Meets the API SN Plus Resource Conserving performance level, including limits on phosphorus leaching measured using the Sequence IIIGB test. This controls catalyst poisoning and prevents exhaust system degradation caused by phosphorus contamination from the engine oil.

• Enhances Fuel Efficiency: Adheres to the ILSAC GF-5 and API SN Plus Resource Conserving performance requirements, featuring technology that reduces internal friction, resulting in improved fuel economy and reduced maintenance costs. Performance results from the Sequence VID test for Improved Fuel Efficiency of over 2.6% and the Sequence IIIG Oil Thickening and Cam Lifter Wear further substantiate these claims.
