Totachi 0W20: specifications
Totachi engine oil synthetic Extra Fuel Economy 0W 20 is a low-viscosity compound, designed for use throughout the year. It is ideal for working with the most modern and high-end technology units. The product can also be used in engines with neutralization of exhaust gases. This lubricant was developed using the latest fuel and resource-saving technologies. Lubrication makes it possible to make the motor work more efficient on all ranges, and also helps to save fuel in comparison with more viscous lubricants.
As for this lubricant, here, too, everything is fine. About the oil Totachi 0w20 reviews in most positive. Experienced motorists choose Totachi for an adequate price-quality ratio. When using a motor with this fluid, the engine inside is clean, and the expense for burning is small. As already mentioned, this lubricating fluid is similar in characteristics to the oils "Motul".
Car enthusiasts are seriously confident that these lubricants, and in particular this particular brand, is a good alternative to popular brands. And often expensive oils in our country like to forge. In addition, in our markets, this product is still considered a novelty.
About Totachi (engine synthetic oil Extra Fuel Economy 0W 20) reviews make it clear that low viscosity and high quality inevitably lead to fuel economy. At low viscosity of the lubricating fluid, there is less resistance to the parts and components of the motor, as well as better heat removal. In addition, with the oils from the "Totachi" you can see an increase in torque to the wheel drive.
In recent years, technological processes for the production of lubricating products have been smashed in Japan, and engine technology has been improved in the world. But this lubricant is designed just for the most modern power units. Today, the working surfaces of most units in motors are significantly reduced. Therefore, liquids with high viscosity are not corny suitable. Even modern car manufacturers recommend using Totachi engine oil synthetic Extra Fuel Economy 0W 20 4L on new and modern cars, and especially on Japanese cars.
The more liquid oil passes better through the reduced gaps of the parts of the unit. Fluids that have a high viscosity, just do not get to where they need to work. And this, in turn, leads to engine failure, or to premature wear of the nodes (due to the friction of the parts "on the dry").
But these lubricants are not suitable for all cars. For example, the owners of domestic classic models of "AvtoVAZ" argue that the system simply does not have enough pressure. But what is the difference between the Totachi 0w20 oil for cars? Reviews say that this is the best of all that is available in stores for motorists, in addition, prices are quite democratic.
Here, the Japanese manufacturer offers a variety of different tools. They are designed to work in a wide variety of transmission systems. These are oils for small cars, sports models and heavy equipment.
Among the transmission lubricants in the range there are oils on a synthetic, semi-synthetic and mineral base. "Totachi" offers lubricants for all types of mechanical transmission. All means fully comply with modern standards adopted throughout the world.
In general, Totachi transmission oil reviews are either positive or neutral. Here the Japanese did not offer anything outstanding. Those who poured the products of this company, write that the checkpoint began to work a little quieter. But here everything is very relative.
One of the car owners says that he filled the transmission oil of this manufacturer in Nissan. Further he writes that the oil is not just good, but of excellent quality. The box began to work much easier, switching more clear, and the buzz in the third gear disappeared. So the verdict - you can pour.
These oils behave identically both in frost and on a warm summer day. But the selection of lubricants follows the recommendations of the car manufacturer. There are many cases when the checkpoint was out of order due to incorrect selection of oil. But Totachi offers the domestic market a quality product for a reasonable price.
Fluids for automatic transmission
The company also took care of those motorists who drive on automatic boxes or variators. Here, the proposed fluids are also based on high-quality base oils. In the composition of lubricants, there are also additive packages that will significantly reduce the wear of the automatic transmission assemblies and reduce the friction between the parts. These greases do not foam, which is very important.
The oils for automatic transmissions have good resistance to oxidation, are temperature stable, ensure the reliability of the mechanisms at high loads. Thanks to special technologies in production, lubricants can significantly reduce the amount of deposits in the area of the sealing joints. Lubrication does not have a destructive effect on polymer parts. All lubricants fully comply with the tolerances of automakers.
When investigating the quality characteristics, the lubricant from Totachi took an honest 6th place among the industry leaders such as Motul, Shell, Mobil. This is a good result for second-tier oil.
