Top 5 lubricants to buy for your vehicle

Top 5 lubricants to buy for your vehicle

Snapshot: Hence, it's very important to maintain the level of oil in the engine. Here's a list of top 5 engine oils for your vehicle. You can buy them here in either a 1-litre pack or a 4-litre pack!

For any vehicle to function properly, be it a four-wheeler or a two-wheeler, engine oil is a very crucial component. Without the right amount of engine oil, or without the right viscosity of engine oil, the engine will not function properly. So what role does engine oil play exactly? We all know there are two major components in an engine - the cylinder and the piston.

Know the difference between Synthetic and Regular Oil!

A piston moves vertically inside the cylinder to generate the power and in the process, generates a lot of heat. An engine oil not only cools down the cylinder, but also reduces the friction between the piston and cylinder. If the engine oil is less or has lost its viscosity, the temperature will rise and the friction will increase, resulting in the failure of the engine, causing a lot more damage, than you can expect.

Hence, it's very important to maintain the level of oil in the engine. Here's a list of top 5 engine oils for your vehicle. You can buy them here in either a 1-litre pack or a 4-litre pack!
