Most internal combustion engines (ICE) only convert around 35% of fuel into power. The remaining energy is not converted into useful work, but instead wasted, dissipated mainly as heat. To support thermal efficiency, engines need to stay cool in critical areas where excessive heat causes damage to engine parts. PETRONAS Syntium with CoolTech+ technology maximises efficiency by controlling engine-damaging heat in order to better protect the engine’s critical parts, lowers fuel consumption and emissions for cleaner, more sustainable motoring.
Why is it the right choice?
Engines that are unable to operate at their optimum temperature waste energy and don’t function at their best. Control excessive heat prevents deposit formation, oxidation, thermal breakdown and wear to avoid inefficiency and loss of performance.
PETRONAS Syntium with CoolTechTMtechnology maximises :
- Greater efficiency: up to 3% more fuel economy* and lower emissions thanks to the improved heat controlling ability and low friction offered by the new CoolTech+ technology.
- Enhanced protection: maximum protection against wear, up to 37.8% better at protecting critical parts against wear**, for longer engine life and lower maintenance costs.
- Maintain performance: up to 68% better oxidation resistance*** to maintain stable performance for the entire drain interval and maximise the efficiency of the engine.

Most engines only convert around 35% of the potential fuel energy into power. PETRONAS technology enables the 8-time FIA Formula One world championship-winning Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS Formula One car to achieve more than 50% thermal efficiency – making it the most efficient racing engine ever created. It’s just one way we’re racing towards a more sustainable future for everyone.
