About Lesson

Passenger car motor oil (PCMO) is designed for use in consumer and performance vehicles. PCMOs can be developed with high-performance synthetic or conventional base oils. This allows for flexibility in the types of products we carry and who we can supply to. NAL was originally focused on PCMOs but have moved into many more product segments since our inception.

Synthetic PCMOs are generally:

  • 75-85% Base Oil 
  • 10-15% Performance Additives
  • 5-10% Viscosity Modifiers


*Almost every national supplier uses a variation of the same formulation from 6 base oil and 4 additive suppliers*
