Advanced 100% Synthetic lubricant that provides High Protection at the same time as Fuel Economy. Approved by BMW Group, GM (General Motors) Opel, and Mercedes for its Extra Fuel Economy property.
Specially designed for the latest generation cars, powered by Gasoline and Diesel engines, naturally aspirated or turbocharged, direct or indirect injection.
For vehicles that are Euro 4, 5 or 6 emission regulation compliant and require 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%), or an ACEA C2 engine oil i.e. a low friction, low HTHS (≥ 2.9 mPa.s) viscosity and "Mid SAPS" oil with
reduced content of Sulfated Ash (≤ 0.8%), Phosphorus (≤ 0.09%) and Sulfur (≤ 0.3%).
Suitable when a "Fuel Economy" lubricant is required: ACEA C2 standard.
Compatible with catalytic converters (CAT) and Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF).
May be unsuitable for use in some engines. Always refer to the owner’s manual if in doubt.

Features and Benefits
Engines compliant with Euro 4, 5 and 6 emission regulations are fitted with sensitive exhaust gas after treatment systems. Indeed, Sulfur and Phosphorus inhibit catalytic converter operation leading to inefficient exhaust gas treatment. Also, Sulfated Ashes clog DPFs leading to shorten regenerating cycles, quick oil aging, higher fuel consumption and engine power loss.
The ACEA C3 standard requires from the lubricant significant oil film resistance and low emission performance during use in powerful engines. The ACEA C2 standard requires significant reduction of friction to ensure gains in energy savings, and therefore fuel economy benefits.
MOTUL 8100 X-clean EFE 5W-30 has synthetic base stocks coupled with specific friction modifier molecules and dedicated SAPS levels that generate outstanding oil film resistance, reduce friction in the engine and provide after treatment device compatibility. MOTUL 8100 X-clean EFE 5W-30 brings high lubricating properties such as wear protection and high temperature resistance for better controlled oil consumption. ACEA C2 and C3 lubricants achieve extended drain intervals as managed by the vehicle on-board computer.
Numerous Asian OEMs such as HONDA, KIA / HYUNDAI, MITSUBISHI, NISSAN, SUBARU, SUZUKI, SSANGYONG, TOYOTA,… recommend an ACEA C2 or C3 lubricant to guarantee the maximum performance and durability for most of their recent vehicles (since 2006), especially Diesels with DPF.
MOTUL 8100 X-clean EFE 5W-30 fulfils all the specifications of BMW Long Life-04 standard of the BMW Group for BMW, MINI and ROLLS-ROYCE vehicles with no exceptions i.e. for models before 2019 and after 2019. For models up to 2019, i.e. until end of 2018 only, MOTUL 8100 X-Clean 5W-40 can also be used.
In countries with relevant Diesel passenger car market shares e.g. Europe, the GM dexos2™ standard is suitable for the whole range of GM-OPEL Diesel engines (including DPF versions) and Gasoline engines from Model Year 2010. Also, GM-OPEL dexos2™ fully supersedes and replaces the previous GM specifications: GM-LL-A-025 (Gasoline) and GM-LLB-025 (Diesel).
MOTUL 8100 X-Clean EFE 5W-30 meets all these very demanding requirements for performance and durability set by OEMs, including in particular the full compatibility to use bio fuels (when using biodiesel at a mix ratio of up to 10% (Biodiesel – B10), or when using E85 (unleaded Gasoline containing 85% Ethanol) for dexos2® standard.
Drain interval: according to manufacturers’ recommendations and tuned to your own use.
Do not mix with lubricants not ACEA C3 or ACEA C2 compliant.
Before using, always refer to the owner’s manual or handbook of the vehicle.
