8100 X-Cess is specially designed for the recent and powerful Diesel and Gasoline engines.
Numerous OEM approvals make this product multipurpose across all makes and models for maximum protection and a cleaner, more efficent engine.
Especially recommended for engines experiencing mild oil consumption.
STANDARDS ACEA A3 / B4
APPROVALS API SM / CF VW 502.00 505 00 BMW LL-01 PORSCHE A40 Mercedes Benz 229.5 OPEL/GM Diesel LL B-025
The ACEA B4 performance requires an outstanding detergent / dispersent power and a better viscosity increase resistance due to soot produced by Direct Injection Diesel engines (except VW Unit Injector engines that require Motul Specific 505.01 5W-40)
The MB 229.3 standard is more stringent than 229.1 in terms of ageing resistance calling for extended drain intervals managed by the on board computer; detergent / dispersant power (see above ACEA B4) and fuel economy improvement of 1.2% versus a reference 15W-40.
The OPEL/GM Diesel LL B-025 standard requires two main properties of the lubricant : high HTHS and very low volatility to drastically decrease oil consumption. Motul 8100 X-cess 5W-40 is especially recommended for OPEL 2.0 and 2.2 DTI engines (extended drain interval : computer on board).
