AeroShell™ Oil W100 SAE Grade 50 Ashless Dispersant Aircraft Oil
Just as you wouldn't think of feeding your child anything less than the best, most nutritious food available, you shouldn't feed your aircraft anything less than the best. When it comes to aircraft oil, AeroShell Oil W100 in SAE 50 is considered the gold standard. The high-quality, single-grade, ashless dispersant oil is available from SkyGeek and is specially formulated for use in aircraft engines. It lubricates and protects, keeping important components from wearing out before their time. The advanced formula works particularly well in aviation piston engines and the high viscosity of the oil provides greater stability and lubrication. The aircraft engine oil uses a select high viscosity index base oil and non-metallic additives for exceptional anti-foaming performance and stability.
ApplicationsThe suffix for each grade corresponds to the viscosity of the oil at 210°F in Saybolt Universal Seconds.
AeroShell W Oils are intended for use in four-stroke cycle certified reciprocating piston engines, including fuel-injected and turbocharged engines. AeroShell W Oils are not recommended for use in automotive engines. For automotive engines converted for use in aircraft, the specific engine manufacturer or the conversion agency should be consulted for proper oil recommendation.
AeroShell Oil 100W or AeroShell Oil 15W-50 are the common choices for most operators of Lycoming and Continental flat engines but, during colder parts of the year, use of AeroShell Oil W80 in place of AeroShell W100 Oil would be an excellent choice.
Although some engine manufacturers and overhaulers suggest in their service bulletins the use of a straight mineral oil in new or recently overhauled engines for break-in, other rebuilders and manufacturers especially for engines such as the Lycoming O-320H recommend use of an AeroShell W Oil for break-in. Operators should therefore check with engine rebuilders or manufacturers for the correct recommendations for the specific engine.
