Prolong Introduces 40W Nitro Racing Oil


POMONA, Calif. – Drivers of smaller, alcohol- or nitromethane-fueled engines competing in today’s domestic and foreign race circuits now have a racing oil formulated specifically for their needs.

Prolong Super Lubricants introduces its 40W Nitro Racing Oil, which is designed to deliver extra protection and boost performance in engines that rely on a higher compression ratio than other fuels, for higher engine power outputs.

Featuring a blend of premium synthetic base oils and additives, Prolong’s 40W Nitro Racing Oil is formulated with Prolong’s advanced Anti-Friction Metal Treatment (AFMT) technology to protect against high temperature oxidation, wear and viscosity breakdown during severe use. It is formulated to meet the demands of high-horsepower, high-RPM engines, with highly effective detergent dispersants and corrosion inhibitors to keep engine parts clean and free of sludge, varnish and rust.

“Prolong is expanding its racing program and we’re actively working with drivers across a series of racing sports with specific requirements in engine fluids,” said Jon Apogée, General Manager, Domestic Sales, Marketing and Motorsports, Prolong Super Lubricants. “Prolong 40W Nitro Racing Oil was developed specifically for the unique needs of speedway bikes, circle track, sprint cars and many other racing applications.”

Prolong’s 40W Nitro Racing Oil is available in 1-gallon, 5-gallon and 55-gallon drum sizes.
