Our new packaging 

New colors, new labels and a more ergonomic design: that’s what you’ll find on the new packaging that Total has unveiled for its entire range of TOTAL and ELF lubricants.  


A bottle at the forefront of innovation

The new TOTAL and ELF bottles are a major step forward! They’re more practical and easier to read, with an attention to detail that aids consumers by showcasing the product’s premium quality.

Today’s engines are designed more compact and powerful than ever before. They do more with less, which means they run at higher temperatures, putting more pressure on the engine and causing faster oil degradation. As a result, friction between metal parts is increased, risking reduced fuel economy, poor engine and exhaust cleanliness, and premature engine failure.

Our answer to these problems is TOTAL QUARTZ.

TOTAL QUARTZ engine oils offer minimal friction and wear, increased fuel economy, excellent cold start properties and extended oil change intervals – delivering considerable, long-term maintenance savings, and improving the driving experience for every motorist.
