VP Racing Fuels has developed a line of customised motor oils for all engines to offer enhanced protection against engine wear for all types of engines.

Here at sgCarMart, we recommend adhering to the manufacturer’s recommendations when it comes to engine oils. That means following them to the letter when it comes to replacement schedules and viscosity types.
But what if you are itching for that little extra dose of protection for your beloved ride? Thankfully, Best Chemical Co (S) Pte Ltd stocks a full suite of engine oils so you can choose what’s best for your engine.
Hybrid engines perform differently from other engines. The fact that they regularly utilise their start-stop systems to save fuel and frequently operate within city limits means they see their fair share of hard acceleration work. Regular start-ups can exert a significant hardship on the engine oil.
Ensure that you are sufficiently protected for the unique work that a hybrid engine does by using a motor oil specifically designed for such an application.
VP Street LegalTM Synthetic Dexos 1TM Gen 2 Motor Oil SAE 0W-20‘s additive package provides resistance to sludge formation and varnish deposits during stop-and-go driving. It provides outstanding wear protection under severe operating conditions. Rest assured that your engine is well protected and, at the same time, enjoy the fuel economy benefits that come with using VP Street Legal™ Synthetic Dexos 1TM Gen 2 Motor Oil SAE 0W-20.
Luxury European and Japanese cars
Here, engine protection is key. You want proven reliability, all-round protection against wear as well as carbon and sludge formation to ensure your car retains its ability to ferry you in quiet serenity or, if the time calls for it, to quickly deliver as much power as you desire. VP Street LegalTM Synthetic European Motor Oil SAE 5W-40 delivers on both fronts, with its advanced additive technology meeting and even exceeding stringent European OEM standards for high-performance vehicles. It provides aggressive resistance to sludge formation and varnish deposits during stop-and-go driving and under severe, high-temperature operating conditions.
With the VP Street LegalTM Synthetic European Motor Oil SAE 5W-40, a host of excellent anti-wear properties protect critical engine components while the ultimate low-temperature fluid performance ensures added engine protection during early morning start-ups.
High mileage cars
Whether it be a service-duty fleet vehicle or a treasured heirloom, a high-mileage car requires immaculate care and protection to ensure it keeps running smoothly. Avoid expensive delays on your fleet vehicle or complicated repairs for your prized automobile by filling up with VP Street LegalTM Extreme Service Motor Oil SAE 10W-40.
Its robust and specially formulated additive system conditions seals and gaskets to reduce engine leaks and oil consumption, while a cocktail of special detergents minimise sludge formation and performance-robbing deposits, ensuring minimum power loss on your engine even as it racks up more miles.
If you are one of the fortunate few who owns a classic car in Singapore, there is no questioning the wisdom of going for the VP Classic Non-Synthetic Racing Oils SAE 20W-50. Classic cars typically have loose engine clearances, heavier value spring pressures and often sit idle for extended periods of time. In addition, classic cars may utilise either flat tappet or roller cams. In Singapore, the oil must stand up to the significant temperature fluctuations that a typical classic car will experience.
The VP Classic Non-Synthetic Racing Oils SAE 20W-50 utilises high-quality conventional base oil that provides superior film strength and wettability of engine parts during operation or at idle.
The oil contains high levels of Zinc Dialkyldithiophosphates (ZDDP) and several additional anti-wear chemistries to protect against engine wear to either flat tappet or roller cam applications. Furthermore, its unique dispersant friction modifier reduces fluid-to-fluid and metal-to-fluid friction, lowering operating temperature and increasing horsepower. The remarkable detergent dispersant package minimises oxidation, soot thickening, sludge and engine deposits. Its rust and corrosion inhibitor protects engines that run excessively hot and which create large amounts of moisture after shut down.
Diesel engines experience greater vibrations due to their high compression ratios, making effective lubrication just as critical as compared to any other types of car. Driving a poorly maintained diesel vehicle puts your own health and wellbeing at risk as toxic pollutants are released from the exhaust.
VP Ultra PowerTM Heavy Duty Engine Oil SAE 15W-40 is formulated to meet the latest requirements of U.S.A Tier 4 and European EURO VI emission standards. It contains an advanced additive and friction-reducing chemistry that delivers superior wear protection, optimum fuel economy and long-lasting soot and oxidation control to support maximum service intervals, ensuring your diesel powerplant remains clean and effective throughout its lifespan.
The oil also delivers long-term protection against diesel particulate filters and exhaust gas recirculation systems unique to diesel engines, thereby minimising the release of any health-adverse pollutants from your engine for years to come.
Of course, given VP Racing Fuels’ long history and involvement in motorsports, it comes as no surprise that there is one added treat for those looking for a lubrication oil suitable for race applications.
The VP Pro Grade SAE 15W-50 Racing Oil utilises high-quality, fully synthetic Poly Alpha Olefin Group IV base stocks. It is suited for high horsepower, high RPM big or small block race engines, as well as some classic car applications. It features approximately 2,000ppm zinc and 2,500ppm phosphorus and additional anti-wear chemistries.
The Pro Grade offers great lubricant protection to flat tappet or roller cams under severe value spring pressure, while utilising a heavy amount of dispersant friction modifiers to significantly reduce fluid-to-fluid and metal-to-fluid friction help to lower the operating temperature and increasing torque and horsepower. In other words, it is an absolute must-have for extracting the maximum performance out of your race engine.
It also utilises an aggressive detergent dispersant package minimising oxidation, soot thickening, sludge and engine deposits and contains an anti-foam additive, optimising the output of your engine race after race. Whether you are a racing professional, competing in a semi-pro league or just starting your racing career in high-intensity amateur races, VP Pro Grade 15W-50 Racing Oil is sure to meet your expectations.
Engine break-in period is very important to the overall life and durability of the engine. The engine break-in period required has changed over the years with improved piston ring materials and designs. So what lubricant do you use if you have a newly rebuilt or completely overhauled engine?
VP Engine Break-In Oil 10W-40 is a unique multi-viscosity oil formulated with a blend of high-quality conventional base stocks, ZDDP, Moly and other additive chemistry to allow a newly machined engine to properly finish seating and mating machine engine parts. It provides ultimate protection for flat tappet, roller cam, push rods, cylinder walls, cam gears, pistons and other critical components during break-in.
VP Engine Break-In Oil should be used for initial 15 to 20 pulls or between 80 to 160 road kilometres.
Best Chemical also carries a full range of VP Racing Fuels, Hobby Fuels, Powersports lubricants, Madditives, Coolants and Motorsports Containers.
