"We’re about to complete the project at the end of this year, or early in the next one", added his colleague, Andrey Arefiev. "Earlier on, we did make an ‘Arctic’ oil for the military, M-3z/12D, that has successfully undergone two expeditions".
The multigrade synthetic all-season motor oil M-3z/12D is designed for extreme Arctic conditions. It is used in batch-produced/prospective petroleum/diesel engines of military vehicles operating up to Euro-4 emission standard. The new oil ensures cold engine start without warm-up at -50°C and substitutes nine brands of motor oils.
According to the manufacturer’s spokesmen, the new oil would surpass the available one in pour point, viscosity and engine start limit temperature.
