As engine technology continues to advance, the design of engines in modern cars, SUVs, and pickup trucks has led to the need for lower-viscosity motor oils. Vehicle manufacturers have worked to increase fuel economy through the development of high-efficiency engines that incorporate gasoline direct injection, turbochargers, and engine management systems. This need for more efficient engine designs is necessary as vehicle manufacturers work to meet evolving fuel economy standards.

A key element to helping these engines to operate more efficiently is the use of thinner weight motor oils, as compared to older engines which may run on SAE 5W-20, 5W-30 or even 10W-30. Newer engines are smaller, have tighter tolerances between engine parts, and run at higher temperatures. These elements of the modern engine require thinner motor oils to boost their efficiencies while still protecting critical engine parts.

Quaker State Full Synthetic 0W-20 motor oil is appropriate for use in all vehicles requiring the use of SAE 0W-20 viscosity grade motor oils under all driving conditions. SAE 0W-20 viscosity grade oils are commonly recommended for newer vehicles with modern engine technology to help provide improved fuel economy and performance. Quaker State® Full Synthetic 0W-20 is also recommended for use in vehicles calling for SAE 5W-20.

All Quaker State full synthetic motor oils, which are the best of the Quaker State family of products, help reduce friction to maximize horsepower1, excellent protection against the formulation of sludge and harmful deposits2, and provide improved fuel economy3. The high-quality full synthetic motor oils are specially formulated to deliver strong engine performance and are designed to protect today's sophisticated engines such as modern turbocharged engines.

Additional performance, features, and benefits of Quaker State full synthetic motor oils include superior lubrication flow and pumpability at high and low temperatures4 and high resistance to oxidation, keeping the oil fresher for longer.

As high-efficiency engines continue to develop and require low-viscosity oils including 0W oils, Quaker State will be ready to meet the needs of those engines. This includes meeting today’s stringent requirements and preparing for future advanced engine technology.
