What are SynLube™ Lube‑4‑Life® Advantages ?



Because of low volatility and high viscosity at high operating temperatures oil burning and oil consumption are substantially reduced. Oil consumption is significantly reduced when compared to conventional Petroleum Motor Oil.

In most automotive applications, in a mechanically sound engine, the typical oil consumption will be about a third to one fifth of what is experienced with typical petroleum motor oil.

In mechanically sound modern engines (LEV and ULEV) in which SynLube™ Lube‑4‑Life® was used since new we have experienced oil consumption as low as one liter per 30,000 miles, while one liter per 6,000 miles is more typical for most older or high mileage engines.

In high mileage engines that were previously operated on petroleum oil the initial consumption of SynLube™ Lube‑4‑Life® may be significantly higher when it is first installed, but after about 10,000 miles of driving it will be quite often significantly reduced, if the engine is mechanically sound.

Typical oil consumption in older engines (pre-OBD - i.e. those made before 1995) is about one quart of SynLube™ Lube‑4‑Life® per 3,000 to 5,000 miles of normal use.


SynLube™ Lube‑4‑Life®  IS SAFE.

SynLube™ Lube‑4‑Life® has been proven safe and effective in critical military, space flight and industrial applications for over 40 years. It has been used by NASA since 1969.



SynLube™ Lube‑4‑Life® is super multigrade lubricant rated SAE 5W-50 with very high viscosity index.

(VI = 200) and therefore can be continually used in all climates, from Arctic to Tropic, from winter to summer, without changing.
