finally completes its High Temperature Protection (HTP) engine oil line-up with three top-of-the-line variants. This is Petron's best engine oil ever formulated.

The normal operating temperature of a car engine may range from 90 to 104 degrees Celsius, or almost at the boiling point of water. Hot weather, stop-and-go traffic, heavy loads, high-speed drives—all these and other extreme conditions can raise the temperature even higher. When subjected to extreme heat, conventional engine oils will oxidize or thicken, thus increasing the chances of leaving deposits, and eventually degrading engine performance that may lead to engine failure.

With many moving internal components, the engine is the heart of a vehicle, and oil is its life blood. Just as clogged arteries can cause cardiac arrest in a human heart, sludges and deposits can cause a car engine to break down. And just like open heart surgery, repairing and rebuilding an engine is a catastrophe we all want to avoid. 

For humans, our optimal temperature is 36.5 to 37.5-degrees Celsius; over that means we are sick with a fever. When the car engine operates in conditions that cause the engine temperature to rise, one of the best ways to ensure that the vehicle is protected is to use specially-formulated premium engine oils.

As a leading provider of total customer solutions in the petroleum industry, Petron Corporation deeply understands the needs of Filipino motorists. With this, Petron has developed its High Temperature Protection (HTP) product range to include engine oils, automatic transmission and brake fluids, gear oil, and grease.
