Top Synthetic Engine Oils in Pakistan

In Pakistan people care more about price than the quality of the product when selecting engine oil, as most of the Pakistani cars use conventional oil instead of synthetic oil in their cars, however from past five years trend has been changed but not as much as they should have been to use of more synthetic oil.

Here on this topic about top synthetic engine oils in Pakistan which will be discussed in details but before that everyone should have to understand the difference between synthetic and non-synthetic, advantages with disadvantages

Synthetic oil

Synthetic oil is more refined, distilled, purified with separate basic molecules for the engine to perform better and efficient.

Non synthetic oil (Conventional, Mineral oil).

Non-synthetic oil made from crude oil just like synthetic oil but this oil is less purified with no basic molecules to clean, to sustain longer or to maintain engine performance more than synthetic oil.

Advantages

  • Synthetic oil can extend the car engine life by removing unwanted deposit which could harm the engine by producing high friction into the engine causing ring and piston affected.
  • Flowing in cold temperatures, thus reducing engine wear during frigid startups.
  • Heat resistance in hot climate areas perform better than normal engine oils
  • Synthetic oil removes the gunky residue that could block the oil passage to go through the engine, conventional oil may not clean that gunky.
  • Perfect in dusty areas where high chances of engine seized via too much dirt go into the engine, non-synthetic do not have the abilities to clean internal engine as much as synthetics do.

Disadvantages:

  • More expensive than normal mineral oil
  • Sometimes may not effective to the old engines
  • Cannot turn the weak engine back to its optimal level

List of top synthetic engine oils in Pakistan

No so many in Pakistan but some of them have a very good reputation in the market.

  1. ZIC
  2. KIXX

Both these are fully synthetic and available in all areas of Pakistan, more expensive than normal oil but according to the reports their result are far better than other brands such as Havoline and shell which is so far the famous engine oil brands in Pakistan regardless of their most of the famous sales grades have the non-synthetic technology.

Caution:

  • Toyota, Honda and Total refine locally from one refinery name Parco, so you can presume the quality of each brand, in addition, Toyota, Honda, and total synthetic refining process cannot be compared to the ZIC and KIXX.
  • Havoline do have synthetic oil but only available in one grade 5W-40 which isn’t famous among Pakistan market
