With sufficient lubrication, it is able to cool, clean, seal, reduce friction within the engine. On the surface of the metal,a lot of friction is generated through the engine movements. The movement speed and poor environment will cause the working temperature to reach 400 ℃ to 600 ℃. Under such bad working conditions, only the appropriate oil can reduce the wear of the engine parts to prolong its service life.
Here are a few simple methods for the identification of engine oil authenticity.
