Exol Lubricants’ synthetic engine oil meets new ACEA C6 spec
Exol Lubricants announced that its fully synthetic fuel economy oil, Optima C5 LSOV 0W-20, now meets the latest ACEA C6 specification, underlining the company’s efforts to be one of the first to market with products that cover the latest engine oil specifications.
ACEA released its latest revision to the ACEA light-duty engine oil sequence last month. C6, which is one of the two new categories introduced by ACEA in its latest revision, provides low speed pre-ignition and wear protection for turbocharged DI gasoline engines as well as diesel turbocharger compressor deposit (TCCD) protection for low SAPS class, being compatible with catalyst and gasoline particulate filter (GPF)/diesel particulate filter (DPF) exhaust aftertreatment systems.
Exol is the largest independent lubricants company in the UK, manufacturing and supplying a range of lubricants and associated products to the automotive, commercial vehicle, agricultural, industrial, off highway and railway sectors from its bulk-blending plant in Rotherham, UK.
Optima C5 LSOV 0W-20 can protect engines from forming deposits when running hot, keeping turbochargers in optimum condition, the company said. Optima C5 LSOV 0W-20 also provides low speed pre-ignition (LSPI) protection and has enhanced anti-wear properties, while delivering significant levels of fuel economy in the latest OEM tests. It is designed for a wide variety of modern petrol and diesel engine applications.
The product is recommended for passenger car applications including Vauxhall/Opel, BMW, Mercedes Benz, Hyundai, Kia and Toyota. Optima C5 LSOV 0W-20 is also compatible with select Jaguar Land Rover vehicles.
