Original Equipment Manufacturer’s (OEM) Approvals represent the toughest and hardest level of oil specification available. Not to be confused with “recommendations” or “meets specifications of” often used by many oil brands.

To gain OEM Approval on any oil product, it must pass strict tests and procedures as specified by the OEM. The full process can cost millions of dollars and must be repeated for each lubricant type. Is your fleet’s oil OEM Approved or just “Recommended For”?

Q8 Oils have put the hard yards in, and have hundreds of OEM Approvals on the full range of their oils. So there’s no excuse to put high quality, OEM Approved oils in your fleet.
