Motor oil or engine oil is an oil used for lubrication of various internal combustion engines. The main function is to reduce wear on moving parts; it also cleans, inhibits corrosion, improves sealing, and cools the engine by carrying heat away from moving parts.
Not all engine oils are created equal.
You need to ensure you are using the correct grade and type of oil within the ELF lubricants range.
If you are unsure of which to use, for your specific vehicle application:

Elf lubricants owe their identification with excellence, performance, records and countless victories in part to their history, the story of a brand created 50 years ago.
A year after the brand’s launch in 1967, the motorsports saga began with the Matra-Elf team, which won a French Formula 3 Championship title with Henri Pescarolo. The record-setting machine was off to the races. In 1969, Jackie Stewart took the first of his three Formula 1 world championship titles at the wheel of the Matra MS80, with the Elf logo prominently displayed.
Begun in 1968, the special partnership with Renault helped Elf take home 18 Formula 1 drivers’ and constructors’ world championship titles and grew beyond racing through a major marketing agreement to recommend Elf lubricants for Renault vehicles. Other major partnerships have been formed since, with constructors including Kawasaki, Alpine and recently the reborn, legendary British motorcycle brand Brough Superior.
