The benefits of API SP
American Petroleum Institute (API) SP is the latest API engine oil standard for passenger car motor oils and requires new and tightened performance. The standards aim to meet the demanding needs of turbocharged petrol direct injection (TGDI) engines, the use of which is increasing because of the need to reduce environmental pollution and fuel use. Growing environmental awareness and emissions regulations mean turbocharged engines are becoming more common.
API SP motor oils are designed to meet the demanding requirements of modern engines equipped with TGDI technology help to control low-speed pre-ignition (LSPI) provide extra wear protection for the timing chain and valve intakes with improved antiwear and antioxidation performance.
