Fully synthetic lubricant, Mid-SAPS, specially designed for Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF) and Three Way Catalytic converters. Designed for turbocharged Diesel direct injection or Gasoline engines requiring an ACEA C3 engine lubricant, high HTHS viscosity and latest emission requirements. Possibility to reach the longest drain interval allowed by the vehicles on board computer.
ACEA Standards: ACEA C3; API Standards: API SN/CF; OEM Approvals: BMW LL-04, MB-Approval 229.51, VW 502.00/505.01/505.00, Porsche A40, Ford M2C 917A, FIAT 9.55535-S2, GM DEXOS2
PERFORMANCES: The ACEA C3 standard requests from the lubricant significant oil film resistance and low emission performance for powerful engines. ACEA C3 lubricants achieve extended drain intervals managed by vehicles on-board computer.; Numerous OEMs such as KIA / HYUNDAI, HONDA, MITSUBISHI, NISSAN, recommend an ACEA C3 lubricant for most of their vehicles especially Diesels with DPF.; The BMW Long Life-04 specification imposes severe constraints to the lubricant particularly due to Valvetronic 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 FORD WSS M2C 917A standard is required for FORD Galaxy 1.9L TDI until MY2006 ; and for FORD Ka from MY2008.; GM-OPEL dexos2 TM standard is suitable for the whole range of GM-OPEL Diesel engines (including DPF versions) and most of Gasoline engines from Model Year 2010. Also, GM-OPEL dexos2 TM fully supersedes and replaces the previous GM specifications: GM-LL-A-025 (Gasoline) and GM-LL-B-025 (Diesel).; The MB 229.51 requires a reduced content of SAPS in order to be compatible with MERCEDES exhaust gas after treatment systems. The specification MB 229.51 applies to some MERCEDES Gasoline engines, and to all MERCEDES Diesel engines, with or without DPF.; The Porsche A40 standard requires extreme high shear resistance from the lubricant. This specification applies to all PORSCHE engines, except Cayenne V6 and Diesel versions (for these specific engines, use an approved Porsche C30 lubricant such as MOTUL 8100 X-clean+ 5W-30).; Do not mix with lubricants not ACEA C3 compliant.
