Are Motorsport engine oils different to your road car oils and why?

Millers Motorsport engine oils have completely different formulations to our normal road oils.  Road oil formulations must comply with the vehicle manufacturers’ specifications, which are increasingly driven by factors such as fuel economy and lower emissions.

Our Motorsport engine oils make no such compromises and are formulated for maximum performance under the most arduous conditions.

The world of motorsport is incredibly diverse, covering everything from small hill-climb events to top flight endurance racing. Millers Oils offers a range of engine oils, gear oils, treatments and specialty products to not only suit your race but also your vehicle, including any modifications.

In 2007, Millers Oils made its name in the motorsport world with its award winning NANODRIVE low friction technology for reduced friction and increased power.  Since then, Millers Oils has remained at the forefront of technology, ensuring users keep their competitive edge on track.

The 2019 season marked Ginetta’s first year where Millers Oils became their technical partner, creating a new bespoke range of products called Ginetta Tech by Millers Oils, specifically formulated for Ginetta vehicles.
