Total to upgrade TOTAL CLASSIC engine oils to TOTAL QUARTZ 5000 & 7000 series engine oils

HOUSTON, Dec. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Modern engines need a modern motor oil to keep them efficient and running strong. Through ongoing innovations to meet advancements in engine technology, Total is upgrading its TOTAL CLASSIC engine oils to the TOTAL QUARTZ 5000 & 7000 series engine oils. This transition provides an improved product that will meet the evolving needs of modern engines by providing the new API SN PLUS specification.

The new TOTAL QUARTZ 7000 Future XT products offer the same quality semi-synthetic oils customers have come to expect from Total, are tailor-made for the requirements of OEMs and will now have approvals from Ford and GM that were not carried under the Classic line. In addition, TOTAL QUARTZ 7000 Future XT will carry the API SN PLUS specification to combat LSPI issues seen in newer engines. This upgrade continues Total's proud history of offering new and innovative motor oils for high performance engines. TOTAL QUARTZ has been proven not just in passenger cars but on the track as well. Paul Miller Racing of the GTD Daytona IMSA racing class uses TOTAL QUARTZ in their Lamborghini Huracán GT3. It truly is tested on the track and available to everyone.
