High performance 100% Synthetic lubricant approved by many car manufacturers.
Specially designed for last generation cars, powered by Gasoline or Diesel engines, naturally aspirated or turbocharged, indirect or direct injection, Euro 4, 5 or 6 emission regulation compliant, requiring an ACEA C3 engine oil i.e. high HTHS (> 3.5 mPa.s) viscosity and "Mid SAPS" with reduced content of Sulfated Ash (≤ 0.8%), Phosphorus (0.07 ≤ x ≤ 0.09%) and Sulfur (≤ 0.3%).
Compatible with catalytic converters and Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF).
Before use always refer to the owner manual or handbook of the vehicle.

Engines compliant with Euro 4, 5 and 6 emission regulation are fitted with sensitive exhaust gas after treatment systems. Indeed, Sulfur and Phosphorus inhibit catalytic converters operation leading to inefficient exhaust gas treatment; and Sulfated Ashes clog DPFs leading to shorten regenerating cycle, quick oil aging, higher fuel consumption and engine power loss.
The ACEA C3 standard requests from the lubricant significant oil film resistance and low emission performance for powerful engines: MOTUL 8100 X-clean 5W-40 has synthetic base stocks and dedicated SAPS levels that generates outstanding oil film resistance, reduces friction in the engine and provides after treatment devices compatibility. MOTUL 8100 X-clean 5W-40 brings high lubricating properties such as wear protection and high temperature resistance for better controlled oil consumption. ACEA C3 lubricants achieve extended drain intervals managed by vehicles on-board computer. Numerous OEMs such as KIA / HYUNDAI, HONDA, MITSUBISHI, NISSAN, SUZUKI, SSANGYONG,… recommend an ACEA C3 lubricant for most of their vehicles especially Diesel engines with DPF.
- Drain interval: according to manufacturers’ recommendations and tuned to your own use.
- Do not mix with lubricants not ACEA C3 compliant.
- Before use always refer to the owner manual or handbook of the vehicle.
