For Modern Classic and Youngtimer vehicles from the 1990’s fitted with 4-stroke Gasoline or Diesel engines, naturally aspirated, supercharged or turbocharged, equipped with carburetor or fuel injection. This 10W-40 formula meets performance standards from the past (API SL) and combines them with MOTUL’s latest technology, developed in motorsports, to deliver a complete performance package for European, High-performance Asian and American modern classics.
Features and Benefits
STANDARDS: API Performance SL
MOTUL CLASSIC EIGHTIES 10W-40 is formulated with a unique combination of High Zinc, Phosphorus (ZDDP content & 1800 ppm) and Molybdenum additives to provide the best protection and performance in naturally aspirated, supercharged, and turbocharged engines found in American, Asian (including boxer and rotary engines) or European vehicles from the 1980’s. High ZDDP levels offer supreme protection of critical components like high-lift, flat-tappet cams, prone to wear because of the high friction developed in these parts. Molybdenum has a synergistic effect with ZDDP, lowering friction while increasing the lubricating film’s strength, engine Efficiency and Power.
MOTUL CLASSIC NINETIES 10W-30 provides a modern-day technology formula, perfectly tailored for the demands of your Modern Classic engine, using an oxidation-stable synthetic base and proprietary additives that allow stay-in-grade viscosity, to maintain consistent engine oil pressure and high-temperature oil film strength (high HTHS viscosity) which is fundamental in the case of turbocharged, low displacement, high performance engines. Originally conceived as a fuel economy enabler, this SAE 10W-30 viscosity will provide you with an excellent balance between engine protection and efficiency, while keeping oil consumption under control.
Its excellent cold flow properties prevent engine wear during start-ups, even after long periods of storage. Highly adhesive, its rust inhibitors and anticorrosion additives provide extra protection during wintering periods.
Formulated with modern technology detergents perfectly adapted to the requirements of your classic engine (original or rebuilt).
Drain interval: drain at least once a year and adjust according to your own use.
Can be mixed with synthetic or mineral oils.
