Engine Oil Additive

Oil additives are chemical compounds that are designed to improve the lubricant performance of base oil. Nearly all commercial motor oils contain additives, whether the oils are synthetic or petroleum based. The type and amount of additives being used in the oil is determined by the engines application, e.g. the oil for a diesel engine with direct injection in a pickup truck has different additives than the oil used in a small gasoline-powered outboard motor being used on a boat. Oil additives are vital for the proper lubrication and prolonged use of motor oil in modern engines. Without many of these additives, the oil would become contaminated, break down, leak out, or not properly protect engine parts at all operating temperatures.

There are many different kinds of oil additives which can be added to the oil periodically while the engine is receiving its regular maintenance. Since these additives are added to the oil separately, the way in which the two substances interact can be both good and bad depending on many factors. Because of this, some vehicle manufactures will void a warranty when special additives are used. To back up their product, many oil additive manufactures will back up their product with a warranty of their own which guarantees both added performance and a long service life.
