Why should I consider using MPower Motor Oils?
MPower Motor Oils are motor oil designed to keep your engine running like new even during today’s longer service intervals. With MPower Motor Oils, you get proven protection up to 7,500 miles, guaranteed. It’s our most advanced motor oils formulation and offers outstanding all-around protection that outperforms our conventional oils, synthetic blends and regular full synthetic motor oils.
If MPower Motor Oils is recommended for 7,500-mile intervals, what’s the maximum limit to which it can be pushed? In other words, if a driver goes an extra 1,000 miles or so, is he going to damage his engine?
MPower Motor Oils is recommended for oil change intervals up to 7,500 miles or one year, whichever occurs first. However, if your vehicle manufacturer recommends an oil change interval beyond 7,500 miles and MPower Motor oils meets the performance level specified, you can be assured that MPower Motor oils will go the distance.
Do I need to flush my engine before switching to MPower Motor Oils?
You do not need to flush your engine prior to changing to MPower Motor Oils.
Upon what driving conditions are these performance claims based? Normal or severe driving conditions?
These claims relate to all typical consumer driving conditions, excluding those mentioned below. In other words, if you drive under normal conditions and use MPower Motor Oils. in your vehicle, the oil is guaranteed to protect your engine for 7,500 miles. We also recommend that drivers consult their owner’s manual while their vehicle is under warranty, and follow the guidelines set forth there. Additionally, we recommend that if consumers drive routinely in severe conditions that they follow the oil change interval recommended in their owner’s manual for severe conditions. We define “severe conditions” as:
• Racing or commercial applications
• Frequent towing or hauling
• Extremely dusty or dirty conditions
If I go longer between oil change intervals, do I need to change my oil filter more frequently? Or do I need a special filter?
Continue to change your oil filter when you change your engine oil. Special filters or more frequent oil filter changes are not required; however, some low-quality filters may not be capable of protecting your engine throughout an extended oil change interval.
What makes MPower Motor Oils superior to our conventional motor oil?
First, the performance of MPower Motor Oils is more robust, especially in terms of low-temperature pumping and flow. High-temperature stability leading to protection against deposits is also superior. These attributes translate into less engine wear, which helps keep your engine running like new, and a long engine life. Conventional oils lack the performance of synthetic motor oils in the areas of low-temperature performance and high-temperature oxidation stability. Mineral base stocks used in conventional motor oils also contain significantly more impurities, such as aromatics and other undesirable contaminants that cannot be completely removed by conventional refining of crude oil.
Is it okay to mix conventional motor oil with MPower Motor Oils?
Yes. MPower Motor Oils is fully compatible with conventional motor oils, semi-synthetic motor oils and other synthetic motor oils, should it be necessary to mix them. But the superior performance of MPower Motor Oils will be reduced by diluting it.
Is it true that new engines need break-in periods using conventional motor oil?
That is a myth. In the past, engine break-in was necessary to remove metal flashing or any other abrasive material left inside the engine after machining, as well as to allow the valves and rings to “seat” properly. Today’s engines are built with much tighter tolerances and much improved machining, and under much cleaner conditions compared to the engines of 10 or 20 years ago. Current engine manufacturing technology does not require a break-in period using petroleum-based motor oils.
How often should I change the oil if I’m using MPower Motor Oils?
Oil change intervals can be as short as 3,000 miles or as long as 15,000 miles on some new cars. We recommend that you follow the oil and filter change frequencies shown in your owner’s manual, especially during the warranty period. With the high-performance reserves of MPower Motor Oils, you can have the confidence to go the full mileage or time frame recommended by the vehicle manufacturer. MPower Motor Oils is especially suitable for the latest vehicles with extended drain intervals or vehicles with oil monitoring systems that vary oil drain intervals.
Can I use an oil supplement and/or engine treatment with MPower Motor Oils?
MPower does not recommend it. In fact, the use of any oil supplement is not recommended by car manufacturers and may void a warranty.
