  • Formulated with a unique combination of additives including medium detergent level compatible with elastomer gaskets
  • Offers excellent oil consumption control, good shear stability and better cold engine start-ups to prevent engine wear after long periods of storage
  • Suitable for year-round use (all seasons protection)
  • Meets manufacturers’ standards from that time while benefiting from the advanced technology of today’s Motul lubricants
  • The high viscosity grade at high temperature (SAE 50) is totally adapted to high mileage engines which tend to be heavy on oil consumption
  • Viscosity is perfectly suitable for narrowed running clearances of the engine, due to significant progress at the time, as regards of metallurgy, casting and machining
  • Leaves an oil film protection on engine moving parts during wintering periods


  • Standards:
    • API SF / CC

Caution: This oil is not suitable for use in most petrol-powered automotive engines built after 1988. Use in modern engines may not provide adequate protection against build-up of engine sludge, oxidation, or wear.


SHIPPING IS FREE* for orders of £75 and over , regardless of the weight of your order.
We've tried to keep all other shipping costs as low as we can.

Carriage starts at just £0.95 (inc VAT) for small items, with our most common courier rate set at £5.99 for orders of 5kg (enough for 5 litres of oil).

  • *Free shipping is available for UK Royal Mail, UPS Access Point™ (click & collect) and standard UK courier services (not express / priority / islands).
  • Courier surcharges mean we are unable to offer free "to the door" courier shipping from us in Cornwall up to Highlands / Grampian in Scotland - and because we send a lot of liquids, not every courier option is available to us. UPS Access Point™ (click & collect) is available as a free shipping option across Scotland, Wales and England, wherever there is a UPS Access Point™ Location.
  • Carriage charges are based on weight - please see our table of carriage costs for full details (although adding an item to your cart and viewing the calculated carriage is often easier!).
