Piston Engine Oils
FUNCTION OF PISTON ENGINE OIL A piston engine oil’s function inside a piston engine is to:
- reduce friction between moving parts
- provide necessary cooling to internal areas
- cushion moving parts against shock and help seal piston rings to cylinder walls
- protect highly finished internal parts of the engine from rust and corrosion
- keep interior of engine clean and free of dirt, sludge, varnish and other harmful contaminants

AeroShell Oil W 15W-50 offers fast engine protection at cold start-up for performance in any climate, and AeroShell Oil W100 Plus is the best single-grade aviation piston engine oil available.
