ACEA developed ACEA C3 standard for lubricants with high HTHS (> 3.5 mPa.s), reduced Sulphated Ash, Phosphorus and Sulphur content (Mid SAPS), suitable for use with exhaust gas after treatment systems. ACEA C3 lubricants achieve extended drain intervals managed by vehicles computer on board. RECOMENDATIONS Drain interval : according to manufacturers'recommendations and tune to your own use. Do not mix with lubricants not ACEA C3 compliants.
