ACEA Standards: ACEA C3; API Standards: API SM/CF; OEM Approvals: BMW LL-04, MB-Approval 229.51
PERFORMANCES: The ACEA C3 standard requests from the lubricant significant oil film resistance and low emission performance for powerful engines: MOTUL 8100 X-CLEAN 5W-30 has synthetic base stocks and dedicated SAPS levels that generates outstanding oil film resistance, reduces friction in the engine and provides after treatment devices compatibility. MOTUL 8100 X-CLEAN 5W-30 brings high lubricating properties such as wear protection and high temperature resistance for better controlled oil consumption. ACEA C3 lubricants achieve extended drain intervals managed by vehicles on-board computer. Numerous OEMs such as FIAT, HYUNDAI / KIA and 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 approved lubricant such as MOTUL 8100 X-CESS 5W-40 or MOTUL 8100 X-MAX 0W-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 after treatment systems. The specification MB 229.51 applies to some MERCEDES Gasoline engines, and to all MERCEDES Diesel engines, with or without DPF. ;RECOMMENDATIONS: Drain interval: according to manufacturers? recommendations and tune to your own use. Do not mix with lubricants not ACEA C3 compliant. Before use always refer to the owner manual or handbook of the vehicle.
Fully synthetic lubricant, Mid-SAPS, specially designed for Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF) and Three Way Catalytic converters. Any car powered by turbo Diesel direct injection or gasoline engines, EURO IV and EURO V emission regulation compliant.
