ENEOS is Japan’s largest oil company, as the “original JDM oil” they have been working in partnership with Asian automakers for decades. As part of this partnership, ENEOS has in-house testing facilities where they follow strategies developed with each OEM partner to meet their vehicle specifications and performance, particularly for the tighter tolerances of Asian engines now seen more on European vehicles and nationals.
Asian automakers are especially particular about their quality and performance standards, and ENEOS’s ability to meet those standards has secured its long-term relationship with these original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). Those standards often evolve in Japan and are adopted by other agencies such as the American Petroleum Institute (API) and the International Lubricants Standardization and Approval Committee (ILSAC), in some cases with input from ENEOS engineers.
Current innovation from ENEOS
Concurrent with this development, new technologies are being pushed that will improve fuel economy and performance, such as 0W-16 oil, which is now produced in the US, and 0W-8 oil, currently under development and use in Japan. ENEOS is currently working on an EV fluid line to meet the needs of the growing electric vehicle market. As part of their OEM partnerships, they work directly with all major Asian manufacturers to develop new products and push the boundaries of technology to meet automakers’ evolving platforms and vision.
Another example of this innovation is woven city, a futuristic hydrogen-powered prototype city designed to house employees of Toyota’s cutting-edge projects, including its e-Palette shuttles and autonomous robots. ENEOS helped develop the hydrogen fuel cell system that powers its fully connected ecosystem and is projected to help Japan achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.
Obsession of ENEOS
ENEOS provides R&D and factory fill for Asian automakers in factories around the world. This access provides ENEOS with never-before-seen vehicle specifications, allowing your organization to develop lubrication formulations that specifically meet (or exceed) vehicle needs. Because of these associations, their products are designed to anticipate future requirements beyond current national vehicle standards.
ENEOS likes to say that their obsession with quality and innovation is more than just a statement – that’s why OEMs have trusted them for nearly half a century.
