Can I switch between mineral and synthetic oils?

Yes, the compatibility of engine oils must be ensured to allow a top-up at any time. However, you should note that a switch from mineral to synthetic and vice versa will change the quality of the original product. This means that the oil drain intervals will have to be adapted accordingly.

Does it make sense to switch to a longlife oil for an older engine?

This ultimately depends on the vehicle manufacturer. In recent years, almost all German vehicle manufacturers have introduced longlife engine oils with extended drain intervals. It should, however, be noted that these oils will not lead to extended drain intervals in all engines. Here, your authorized auto repair shop is the best address to contact for advice.

What do you understand by viscosity?

Viscosity is a measure for the thickness or the thinness of a fluid. High-viscosity fluids are thick and flow sluggishly while low-viscosity fluids are thin and flow freely. High-viscosity oils therefore form thicker lubricant films, providing reliable wear protection for gears and bearings. Low viscosities – especially with engine oil – mean reduced splash losses and hence, improved efficiency and reduced fuel consumption. In manual transmissions, the shift forces increase with increasing viscosity, resulting in reduced operational comfort.

What are base oils?

Base oils impart basic specific properties to the lubricant which are reflected in the performance of the finished products.

Mineral oils: Hydrocarbon compounds of different shape, structure, type and size (VI: 80-95)

Hydrocracked oils: Refined mineral oils with a higher purity level and an improved molecular structure (VI: 130-140)

Polyalphaolefins (PAOs): Petrochemical synthesis products – chemically synthesized straight-line hydrocarbon compounds (VI: 130-145)

Synthetic esters: Chemically synthesized compounds of organic acids and alcohols consisting of molecules of a defined shape, structure, type and size. (VI: 140-180)

What are additives?

Additives are insoluble compounds and/or active ingredients which are added to the above base oils. They change or improve the lubricant properties through chemical or physical action.

Chemically acting additives:




Anti-wear additives

Corrosion inhibitors

Physically acting additives:

Viscosity Index (VI) improvers

Anti-foam additives

Pour point depressants

Friction modifier

How do I read the SAE information on auto oils?

The SAE values designate the viscosity classes of motor vehicle lubricants as standardized by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE).

Example: SAE 0W typifies an extremely low-viscosity winter oil corresponding to the lowest viscosity class currently defined. By contrast, SAE 40 designates a high-viscosity summer oil. A multi-grade oil, e.g. SAE 0W-40 provides the same performance as SAE 0W in cold weather and the same performance as SAE 40 in hot weather. They cover the performance requirements for both cold starts at low temperatures and for driving on the motorway at high temperatures.

A low cold viscosity stands for quick engine lubrication during cold starts and hence reduced fuel consumption. A higher high-temperature viscosity stands for a reliable lubricant film at high oil temperatures but also for higher fuel consumption. With advanced engine oils there is a trend towards achieving optimum fuel economy.

When using high-quality base oils, a reduced high-temperature viscosity will also guaranteed a reliable lubricant film at all times.

Is too high an oil level bad for the engine?

An excess of oil in the engine is harmful for both the engine and the environment.Too high an oil level may cause the engine oil to foam so that its lubricating function is impaired. At the same time increased amounts of oil mist will be carried over into the combustion chambers where they are not completely burned. Besides high oil consumption, unburned oil constituents will be entrained with the exhaust and enter the catalyst converter, where they deposit and will reduce the conversion efficiency in the long term. By routinely checking the engine oil, you can see when and how much to top up. In most engines, the difference between the MAX and MIN marks on the dipstick corresponds to roughly 1 litre. Therefore it is recommended to add 0.5 l at time when the oil level has dropped between medium and minimum.

My car has been converted to gaseous fuel – Which oil should I use?

As a matter of principle, the gas fuel system and engine manufacturers’ instructions should be observed. In the absence of engine oil information in the manual, we recommend a low-ash product as used in vehicles with diesel particle filter, for instance. The vehicle manufacturer approvals should, however, always be observed.

What is the shelf life of engine oil?

Small containers have a minimum shelf life of 5 years (when stored in a dry place at temperatures of between +5 and +30°C without direct exposure to solar radiation). Preferably, the oil should be stored in the basement of your house, for instance – rather than in the garage! Open cans should not be stored for longer than 6 months.

Ordered 3 litres of Rowe 75w80 TopGear FE transmission oil. Product was promptly delivered on time. This oil is one of the few oils that mentions the original VW OEM part numbers (G052 527 A2) for 2.0 TDI manual transmission. Shift quality is as good as OEM. Overall Im happy with the product

Shubham Bhatia

Recently got my Swift Vdi serviced from Rowe oil. Really amazed to see the difference in the ride quality and improved average (25km/L). Would definitely use again and recommend everyone who wants best in class average in their cars.

Syed Razvi

My friend suggested me to use this oil, I was a little skeptical about it as I havent heard of it earlier. But then did a little bit of research online and this brand is not a new brand, it's in the international market for many years.

Faizaan Shah

Got it recommended and done by GT TUNERZ so I had to give it a try for sure. It has been the best oil til' now for me. I can feel the abrupt change in my engine power and refinement of the engine. If you love your car and want it to love you back then this engine oil is highly recommended for you.

Jagswroop Singh

Great product, Great service with pre buying assistance. Not a depth review but the vehicle feels smoother and sound better. Keep it Up, Looking forward for regular festive offers to grab good deals.

Satyam Singh

After using Rowe engine oil for the 1st time now engine is smooth, less engine noise, smooth idling. Overall good quality product.

Vaishanv Reddy

Most of these multi-brand workshops use 5w-30 over recommended 0w-20 because it's not available in entire india for diesel car

Finally I'm glad i found ROWE 0w-20 Motorsport oil with volvo certification

Hardik Doshi

The only oil with the grade which comes oem in all volvo and now im all happy n satisfied with this company to be a part of my cars shelf life...i have used it in my volvo and im really very happy with rowe oil.

Babil Salam

Used on 120000kms run C250 Cdi 2010 model Felt super smooth and less engine noise Satisfied and definitely recommended..

GT Tunerz

Fantastic oil, and more importantly, fantastic range, so one can get the correct grade for the application desired engine, gearbox, brske, you name it , they have it!

Ps: Did I say awesome pricing?

Karthik gj

Hi this karthik from infinity customz chennai , I suggested my customer to go with rowe oil after using this oil engine become instantly very refined and best performance output , now im suggesting all my customer to go with rowe products...

Ajay Kishwaha

Top class product and prompt service! Highly recommended

mohammed al attas

The best and unique motor racing oil launched and introduced in india by euroliquids india. Something like this was much needed. Made in Germany.

Kunal Doshi

Finally i found out some trustworthy and efficient oil for my BENZ. This is a brand that strictly follows OEM specifications...

Amit Yadav

Cruze vcdi 2.0 running on ROWE. Engine feels much more smoother and responsive :)


Really good review , the car feels much more smoother and peppier.
