Which Oil Should you be Using in Your Volvo Trucks?
Knowing the best oil to use in your Volvo Truck is very important as the oil is one of the most important elements in keeping your engine healthy. Engine oil is sometimes compared to be as vital for an engine as blood is to a body. The engine oil in your Volvo keeps the engine’s parts moving whilst also protecting them.
Different Oils for Volvo HGVs
For HGV engines it has become more complex as the new generation engines have more requirements to ensure they meet the stringent rules set down by the E.U. Depending on the engine in your Volvo truck you are going to require a 5W/30, a 10W/30, a 10W/40 or a 15W/40 heavy duty diesel engine oil all of which need to meet the Volvo specification either VDS 4.5, VDS 4, VDS 3 or VDS 2. However, it is more advisable that you always look for the top international branded oils that have the full approval from Volvo for the specifications, as you are guaranteed quality oil that has been fully approved by the manufacturer of your truck. This is especially preferred when your Volvo is still under warranty as using an unapproved oil means you run the risk of voiding your warranty if when tested the oil that states it meets the requirement does not pass the test which could happen.
