High Performance 100% Synthetic - ESTER engine oil inspired from the competition and specially designed for Gasoline or Diesel engines, tuned or high performance, naturally aspirated or turbocharged, indirect or direct injection, and
operating over a wide range of engine revs and temperatures, in the most severe road or racing conditions.
Suitable for Gasoline and Diesel engines requiring an API SP viscosity grade 5W-40 lubricant.
The exclusive formula of MOTUL 8100 POWER 5W-40 is compatible with biofuels (especially the Ethanol E85) and after-treatment systems. It also protects downsized engines from the risk of LSPI (Low Speed Pre-Ignition), and its optimized viscosity brings the best compromise between power and reliability to your engine.
Very good compatibility with catalytic converters.
Suitable for all types of Gasoline fuels, leaded or unleaded, Ethanol, LPG, Diesels and biofuels. This type of oil may be unsuitable for use in some engines. Before use always refer to the owner’s manual.
API Performance SP
Features and Benefits
ESTER Technology: 100% Synthetic formula derived from competition and based on Ester ensuring outstanding oil film resistance at very high temperatures for maximum engine power and torque, as well as maximum wear protection. Stable oil pressure whatever the conditions of use, road or racing.
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, API has developed the API SP standard for engine lubricants in order to guarantee the perfect integrity of these gasoline engines facing the risk of these abnormal combustions.
The API SP standard is fully backward compatible over API SN requirements and all former API standards. API SP lubricants provide outstanding oxidation resistance, better anti-deposits protection, better engine cleanliness, anti-wear protection and enhanced performance at cold temperature for Fuel Economy savings during the whole oil life span.
Besides being backward compatible, compare to API SN and API SN Plus, the API SP standard provides higher performance and especially adds more protection against LSPI phenomenon for downsized direct injection turbocharged gasoline engines.
MOTUL 8100 POWER 5W-40 meets all these very highly demanding requirements of performance and durability, including in particular for API SP 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).
MOTUL 8100 POWER 5W-40 is particularly resistant to high temperatures to allow better control of oil consumption and provide higher wear protection. Its optimized viscosity grade SAE 5W-40 allows faster oil flow at start up, faster oil pressure build-up and brings the best compromise between power and reliability to your engine.
Drain interval: according to manufacturers’ recommendations and to be tuned to your own use.
MOTUL 8100 POWER 5W-40 can be mixed with synthetic or mineral oils.
Before use always refer to the owner manual of the vehicle.
