About this Product:
TYPE OF USE 8100 X- lite 0W-30 Gasoline and Diesel engine oil 100% Synthetic – Ester Based Specifically designed for powerful and recent cars, diesel direct injection or gasoline engines and catalytic converters. Recommended for Audi TT and S3 and all W engines from Volkswagen group. Suitable for leaded or unleaded gasoline, Diesel fuels and LPG. PERFORMANCE STANDARDS APPROVALS PERFORMANCE ACEA A3 / B4 API SL / CF VW 502 00 / 505 00 / 503.01 - Mercedes Benz 229.3 BMW LL-098 This 100% synthetic engine oil has been formulated, developed and tested according to the most recent technical requirements. It largely exceeds the stringent specified engine performance limits required by the European and US car manufacturers. * The performance ACEA B4 request an outstanding detergent/dispersant power and a better viscosity increase resistance due to soot needed for a perfect lubrication of last generation Direct Injection Diesel engines (exception for VW unit injector engines asking for at least MOTUL Specific 505 01 5W-40). * The VW 503.01 standard requires at the same time low volatility, high efficiency lubricant, friction reduction, high resistance at high temperature met in modern engines to allow extended drain intervals (computer on board). * The standard MB 229.3 is more stringent than 229.1 in terms of ageing resistance (extended drain interval : computer on board), detergent / dispersant power (see ACEA B4) and requests fuel economy performance : 1.2% fuel economy improvement versus reference 15W-40. RECOMMENDATION Drain interval : refer to manufacturers'recommendations and tune to your own use. Can be mixed with synthetic or mineral oils.
