*Calculated based on a standard M111 Fuel Economy Test and the EEC Directive 80/1268/EEC fuel consumption rate for Urban Use on 2.2L 4x4 A/T engine, in comparison with 15W-40. The test is based on the prevailing fuel price of 29.79 Baht/liter as of January 21st, 2013.
Q: Is Ford-Magnatec Professional A5 compatible with both diesel and gasoline engines?
A: All Ford’s WSS-M2C913-C lubricants are formulated to enhance the performance of both diesel and benzene engines. They are even excellent to use with B7 standard (7%) bio-diesel fuel.
Q: Why is the engine oil change duration in certain Ford vehicles as long as 15,000 km.?
A: Several factors affect the deterioration of engine oils. These include incomplete fuel combustion which leaves a lot of carbon deposits; modification to use with LPG or CNG fuels which increases the engine temperature; and, running the engine in congested traffic for a long time. All these contribute to shortening the usage life of engine oils. However, the quality of the engine oils and driver’s behavior also play a major role in prolonging the engine oil change duration.
|Deterioration of Engine Oils|
|Engine technology||New engine model||Older engine models|
|Engine oil quality||WSS-M2C913-C Ford standard||Conventional engine oils|
|Type of use||Factory-setting||Modified to use with LPG/CNG and heavy-duty vehicles*|
Q: Is it necessary to use ‘oil additive’ or ‘engine flushing’ when changing engine oils?
A: Ford recommends not to use any oil additive or flushing product when changing engine oil because sub-standard products can severely damage your engine and result in the termination of your vehicle’s warranty.
Q: Is it true that newly purchased cars may ‘consume’ engine oils more quickly than older cars do?
A: During the first 5,000 km, ‘new cars’ may consume more engine oils than usual because all the moving parts are still in the ‘adjustment period’ and they need oils to function properly. So, it is possible that you will see a noticeable drop of engine oil level. During this period, it is advisable to check the level of the engine oil every time you refuel your vehicle.
