Diesel Engine Oil

What Is Diesel Oil?


Diesel oil is motor oil designed for lubricating diesel engines. Diesel motor oil is designed specifically for diesel engines and differs from the oil that is used to lubricate gasoline engines. Diesel engines can typically be found in commercial vehicles, industrial equipment and European cars. Many commercial and consumer trucks use diesel engines, which require a diesel engine oil.


What Type Of Oil Is Used For Diesel Engines?


Heavy duty, multi-grade, high viscosity oils are typically used in diesel engines. Diesel engine oils typically contain a higher volume of additives that neutralize acids and clean the diesel engine. These additives are necessary since diesel engines create much more soot that needs to be cleaned out by heavy duty oils. Oils for diesel engines can be identified by reading the American Petroleum Institute label that is found on all motor oils. The letter C can be found on the label indicating that the oil is intended for commercial or compression ignition (diesel engines). It is very important to use diesel motor oil for diesel engines and not gasoline engine oil. These combustion engines are different and so are the oils that are specifically formulated for them.
