Technical Information:

The ACEA B4 performance specification requires an outstanding detergent / dispersant power and a better viscosity increase resistance due to soot produced by Direct Injection Diesel engines (except VW unit injector engines that require a VW 505 01 product such as MOTUL SPECIFIC 505 01 502 00 505 00 5W-40).

The BMW Long Life-01 specification imposes severe constraints to the lubricant particularly due to the Valvetronic  system. Suitable for the majority of BMW engines pre 2004 (excluding M-series).

The GM-OPEL Diesel LL B-025 standard requires two main properties from the lubricant : high HTHS and very  low  volatility  to  drastically  decrease  oil  consumption.  MOTUL 8100 X-cess 5W-40 is especially recommended  for  Vauxhall / Opel diesel  engines  such  as  the  2.0L  and  2.2L  DTI  engines  (extended oil change interval with on board computer).

The  MB  229.5  standard  is  more  stringent  than  229.3  in  terms  of  ageing  and  oil  film  resistance (extended oil change interval with on board  computer),  detergent/dispersant  power  (ACEA  B4)  and  requires fuel  economy  performance  :  1.7%  fuel  economy  improvement  versus  a  15W-40  reference.  The specification  MB  229.5  applies  to  all  MERCEDES  petrol engines,  including  AMG  (in  5W-40 viscosity grade) except SLR, and to all MERCEDES Diesel without DPF engines.

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).

Renault has developed RN0700 and RN0710 standards for oils able to endure the most severe thermal constrains along with modern after treatment systems compatibility. The  Renault  RN0700  standard  applies  to  all  Naturally  Aspirated  Gasoline  engines  (except  Renault Sport) of the Renault Group (Renault, Dacia, Samsung). The RN0700 specification applies also to all RENAULT Diesel cars fitted with 1.5 dCi engines without a DPF  (Diesel  Particulate  Filter)  having  less  than  100  hp  output  and  20 000  km  or  1  year  oil  drain interval.  The Renault RN0710 standard applies to all turbocharged Gasoline, Renault Sport  and Diesel without DPF engines of RENAULT Group (Renault, Dacia, Samsung). The RN0710 specification does not apply to RENAULT Diesel cars fitted with 1.5 dCi engines without DPF having less than 100 hp output and 20 000 km or 1 year oil drain interval which specifically require a  RN0700  lubricant.  For  the  2,2L  dCi  with  DPF,  use  only  an  approved  RN0710  lubricant,  not  a RN0720.

The FIAT 9.55535-H2, FIAT 9.55535-M2 and FIAT 9.55535-N2 performance levels impose the engine oil to combine both ACEA A3/B4&
