JXTG OEM STORY
JXTG is a long-time supplier of products to Japanese auto makers, using in-house research and technology to create synthetic motor oil and transmission fluids in conjunction with Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), specifically designing lubricants for the tighter tolerances of Asian vehicles.
Reducing the viscosity of motor oil without losing performance and protection is another long-term project, which is conceived in collaboration with OEMs and assists global standards organizations such as the American Petroleum Institute. Working closely with racing teams and their OEMs to create engine oils that provide a “secret advantage” for the driver is another ENEOS activity.
