Can Diesel Engine Oils Be Used in Petrol Engines?

Yes, diesel engine oils may be used in a petrol engine as long as they meet the engine's specifications and viscosity requirements.

If your petrol engine, for example, requires API SN-compliant motor oil, you can use a diesel oil of the proper viscosity as long as it meets the API SN standards. Most petrol applications don't require diesel oil, and a premium petrol motor oil is a preferable choice in terms of performance and pricing.

Over summarize, some owners of modified gasoline-powered vehicles prefer diesel oils to gasoline-powered rivals.

Many people believe diesel oils are more durable and can withstand the additional heat generated by a strong, turbocharged engine.

Others prefer lubricants with a higher viscosity to protect against wear, and obtaining a 40- or 50-weight diesel engine oil is sometimes simpler than buying a petrol motor oil. Others think that diesel fuel should have a higher detergency level.
