100% Synthetic "Fuel economy" engine oil specially designed for recent gasoline engines, naturally aspirated or turbocharged, indirect or direct injection, designed to use oil with low friction and very low HTHS (High Temperature High Shear) viscosity (≥ 2.6 mPa.s).

Suitable for modern gasoline engines requiring a viscosity grade 20 and fuel economy lubricant (API SP-RC, API SP and/or ILSAC GF-6a standards).

Approved GM-dexos1™ GEN2 for all new GM gasoline engines requiring this approval: BUICK, CADILLAC, CHEVROLET, GM, GMC, OPEL and VAUXHALL.

Catalytic converter friendly.

This type of oil may be unsuitable for use in some engines. Refer to the owner manual if in doubt.

The API SP standard is fully backward compatible over API SN requirements and all former API standards. The API SPRC "Resource Conserving" specification is even more demanding on the energy saving requirements.

Turbocharged gasoline engines with direct injection have a certain risk of sporadic pre-ignition phenomena in the combustion chambers. This type of sporadic abnormal combustion resembles metallic noise from combustion chambers and is sometimes associated with a short power loss. This phenomenon called LSPI for Low Speed Pre-Ignition, or also Rumble, generates very high pressure peaks in the combustion chamber that can lead to piston damages and ultimately to engine destruction. For their latest-generation downsized gasoline engines, which are equipped with direct injection systems and turbochargers, GM has developed the dexos1™ GEN2 standard for engine lubricants in order to guarantee the perfect integrity of these gasoline engines facing the risk of these abnormal combustions.

Likewise, the API SP standard now fully covers this LSPI requirement in order to perfectly protect direct injection turbocharged gasoline engines.

MOTUL 8100 Eco-lite 0W-20 meets all these very highly demanding requirements of performance and durability set by GM, including in particular for dexos1™ standard, the full compatibility to biofuels use such as LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas), CNG (Compressed Natural Gas), and bioethanol (as available at the station), when using ethanol biofuel at a mix ratio of up to 85% (Bioethanol – E85).

Viscosity grade SAE 0W-20 minimizes lubricant hydrodynamic friction, allows fuel economy benefits especially when the oil is cold.

Improves oil flow at start up, faster oil pressure build-up, faster rev raisings and reach operating temperature faster.

Environment friendly, this type of oil allows fuel consumption reduction and therefore minimizes greenhouse gases (CO2 ) emissions.


  • Drain interval: according to manufacturers’ recommendations and tune to your own use.
  • MOTUL 8100 Eco-lite 0W-20 can be mixed with synthetic or mineral oils.
  • Before use always refer to the owner manual of the vehicle.
