High performance 100% synthetic lubricant specially designed for latest generation of Diesel and Gasoline engines, EURO IV or EURO V emission regulation compliant, requiring an engine oil with high HTHS (> 3.5 mPa.s) viscosity and “Mid SAPS” with reduced content of sulfated ash (≤ 0.8%), phosphorus (0.07 ≤ x ≤ 0.09%) and sulfur (≤ 0.3%). Compatible with catalytic converters and Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF). Particularly suitable for the latest generation of BMW, MERCEDES, PORSCHE and VAG (VW, AUDI, SEAT, SKODA) cars. Suitable also for any type of Diesel or Gasoline engines calling for ACEA C3 lubricant. Before use always refer to the owner manual or handbook of the vehicle.

Engines compliant with EURO IV and EURO V emission regulation are fitted with sensitive exhaust gas after treatment systems. Indeed, Sulfur and Phosphorus inhibit catalytic converters operation leading to inefficient exhaust gas treatment; and Sulfated Ashes clog DPFs leading to shorten regenerating cycle, quick oil aging, higher fuel consumption and engine power loss. The BMW Long Life-04 specification imposes severe constraints to the lubricant particularly due toValvetronic and after treatment systems compatibility. It covers all BMW engines from 2004 and also all BMW engines before 2004 as BMW LL-04 covers all the previous BMW specifications such as BMW LL-98 and BMW LL-01. ATTENTION: BMW LL-04 product can be used for gasoline engines only in European Union countries, Switzerland, Norway and Liechtenstein. Outside those countries, a BMW LL-01 lubricant such as MOTUL 8100 X-cess 5W-40 is required. Refer to BMW recommendation. The MB 229.51 requires among many other severe constrains from the lubricant a reduced content of Sulfted Ash, Phosphorus and Sulphur in order to be compatible with MERCEDES exhaust gas aftertreatment systems. These oils can reach flexible drain intervals managed by computer on board due
to outstanding shear resistance properties. The specification MB 229.51 applies to some MERCEDES Gasoline engines, and to all MERCEDES Diesel engines, with or without DPF. PORSCHE has introduced its C30 norm to guarantee the perfect lubrication of all their Diesel engines and V6 Gasoline engines (Porsche Cayenne). Approved “PORSCHE C30” lubricant fulfills all these highly demanding requests especially regarding oil film resistance.
