Fuel economy lubricants
Dicover fuel economy technology
TOTAL low SAPS products cater to the needs of the most up-to-date engines, enabling their depolluting systems to operate at maximum capacity.
Our low emissions - or "low SAPS" - lubricants contain low levels of sulphated ash, phosphorus and sulphur (SAPS). SAPS contained in traditional lubricants can have a harmful effect on the depolluting post-treatment systems that eliminate pollutant emissions. Particulate filters (DPF) are particularly sensitive to SAPS. TOTAL Lubrifiants' low SAPS technology reduces your environmental impact by optimizing the performance of these depolluting systems. Our low SAPS lubricants form just one part of the TOTAL Ecosolutions program.
There has been an unprecedented R&D focus on depolluting systems in the automotive field during recent years. Automakers have thus introduced particulate filters. Designed for diesel engines, the filters trap accumulated particulates and produce a diesel injection, which finally burns off the undesirable components. This has presented a new challenge for lubricants, and TOTAL has risen to it. We have designed oils adapted to the new physical and chemical conditions of post-treatment systems such as particulate filters.
