Engine lubrication in hybrid vehicles
The petrol engines of hybrid vehicles, like the Toyota Prius, are constantly starting and stopping, so it is necessary the use of a lubricant of low viscosity and low friction coefficient.
This motor oil must meet certain characteristics that facilitate implementation, reducing power consumption and thus improve engine efficiency, extending the life of batteries and provide a reduction of fuel consumption.
This same fluid should also ensure adequate lubrication in continuous operation at high temperatures.
To achieve these properties, the industry has developed synthetic lubricant viscosity SAE 0W-20 and SAE 5W-20, which meet or exceed the requirements of API SN and ILSAC GF-5.
