Optimum Trading Co., Ltd. is the exclusive importer of two lines of CWORKS motor oils in Russia, CIS countries and Eastern Europe: CWORKS OIL and CWORKS SUPERIA OIL. So what is the difference between the two and are they interchangeable?

Country of origin

First of all, it should be noted that these lines of motor oils are produced in different parts of the world.

The CWORKS OIL line is manufactured at a European plant which laboratory ranks among the top 10 by the International Lubricant Standardization and Approval Committee (ILSAC). CWORKS SUPERIA OIL is a premium line of Japanese motor oils and transmission fluids produced at the high-tech plant owned by the JXTG Nippon Oil & Energy Corporation, founded in 1888.

Local statutory compliance with production requirements affects one more aspect - packaging. According to European standards, CWORKS OIL products are produced in accordance with the European legal requirements: in plastic packaging. While CWORKS SUPERIA OIL - in metal cans. Consumers also have different opinions on the issue, and therefore Optimum Trading Co., Ltd. offers its clients two lines of motor oils to choose from.

Unique Classifications

There are also engine oils with unique tolerances and specifications that can only be found in the CWORKS SUPERIA OIL line. And which are not represented in CWORKS OIL. By the same token, products with other tolerances and specifications are exclusively available in the CWORKS OIL line. CWORKS SUPERIA OIL products comply with API SP and ILSAC GF-6A classifications. These are the latest classes of motor oils that meet the newest demands of automakers. Oils of these classes are superior to their predecessors in many ways. In accordance with the most stringent requirements adopted by API and ILSAC, these oils are produced on highly refined VHVI Group III base oils (Very High Viscosity Index). They have a high fuel economy index according to the results of the “Sequence VIF” test and prevent the LSPI effect (Low Speed Pre-Ignition) via the use of new additive packages.

Can they be used together?

Another important difference is that these engine oils allow the use of non-identical base oils and additives. In this regard, we do not recommend mixing oils from different lines, even if they have the same tolerances and specifications. However, it should be mentioned that all components of CWORKS motor oils and transmission fluids are of high quality regardless of the line.

CWORKS OILS and CWORKS SUPERIA OIL motor oils and transmission fluids are already on the market and are distributed by Optimum Trading Co., Ltd. in Russia, CIS countries and Eastern Europe.
