- low friction and thus fuel-economy & better performance together with a
- low CO2 emission.
- mid SAP oil, which expands the lifetime of the emission control systems without having any influence on the performance.
- Very high viscosity index and high resistance to shearing
- good fluidity at low temperatures for a better cold start
- Excellent oil film, even at high temperatures
- Very good detergency and very strong dispersion
- Strong anti-wear, anti-corrosion and anti-foam properties
