TYPE OF USE: High performance lubricant specially designed for latest generation of Diesel and Gasoline engines, requiring an engine oil with high HTHS (> 3.5 mPa.s) viscosity and Mid SAPS with reduced content of sulfated ash (= 0.8percent), phosphorus (0.07 = x = 0.09percent) and sulfur (= 0.3percent). Compatible with catalytic converters and Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF). Particularly suitable for the latest generation of BMW, MERCEDES, PORSCHE, VW and AUDI cars. Suitable also for any type of Diesel or Gasoline engines calling for ACEA C3 lubricant. Before use always refer to the owner manual or handbook of the vehicle. ;PERFORMANCES: 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 lubricant such as MOTUL 8100 X-cess 5W-40 is required. Refer to BMW recommendation.; The MB 229.51 requires among many other severe constrains from the lubricant a reduced content of SAPS 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.; PORSCHE C30 approval guarantees the perfect lubrication of all their Diesel engines and V6 Gasoline engines (Porsche Cayenne) and their highly demanding requests regarding oil film resistance.; VOLKSWAGEN for their VW 504 00 and VW 507 00 standards requires from the lubricant to be fully compatible with their after treatment systems such as catalytic converters and DPFs. ;RECOMMENDATIONS: Can be mixed with synthetic and mineral oils.
