fuel economy: Cars

Here at Total, we're committed to bringing you outstanding efficiency and prolonged engine life, along with an impressive reduction in polluting emissions.

Fuel economy

To achieve the best fuel economy, cars require an outstanding lubricant. In fuel consumption comparison tests, Total Quartz Ineo First 0W-30 (our latest lubricant) produced an increase in fuel efficiency of 4.2 percent. Total Quartz Ineo First 0W-30 has passed the stringent engine tests required to be designated a Fuel Economy lubricant by the ACEA.

Engine life

As you drive, the moving parts in your engine are inevitably subjected to wear and tear. A superior lubricant helps by reducing friction, cooling moving parts and helping to keep the engine clean. Because our lubricants improve engine cleanliness and give anti-wear protection, they will increase the life of your car's engine.

First-fill oil

The first-fill oil - the oil used for a car's initial fill before it leaves the factory - is very important because it can impact on a vehicle's overall lifespan and long-term efficiency. Understandably, manufacturers look for a high-quality first-fill oil so that their vehicles get the best possible start. In 2008 alone, almost 3 million PSA vehicles went onto the road with Total Quartz Ineo First 0W-30 as their first-fill oil.

Environmental protection

Because they promote engine cleanliness and are formulated with lower emissions in mind, Total lubricants are less polluting than similar competing products. Our products also help the environment by improving fuel efficiency. This lowers your car's consumption of fossil fuels and reduces your carbon footprint.
