STANDARDS ACEA A3 / B4 API SM / CF
APPROVALS BMW LL-01

PERFORMANCES FIAT 9.55535-H2, FIAT 9.55535-M2, FIAT 9.55535-N2
The ACEA B4 performance requires an outstanding detergent/dispersant power and a better viscosity
increase resistance due to soot produced by Direct Injection Diesel engines (except VW unit injector
engines that require a VW 505 01 product such as MOTUL SPECIFIC 505 01 502 00 505 00 5W-40).
The BMW Long Life-01 specification imposes severe constraints to the lubricant particularly due to the
Valvetronic system. It covers all BMW engines since 2001 and also all the previous BMW
specifications such as BMW LL-98.
BMW LL-01 standard covers also all Gasoline engines running only outside European Union
countries, Switzerland, Norway and Liechtenstein. Refer to BMW recommendations when in doubt.
GM-OPEL Diesel LL B-025 standard requires two main properties from the lubricant : high HTHS and
very low volatility to drastically decrease oil consumption. MOTUL 8100 X-cess 5W-40 is especially
recommended for OPEL Diesel engines such as the 2.0L and 2.2L DTI engines (extended drain
interval : on-board computer).
The MB 229.5 standard is more stringent than 229.3 in terms of ageing and oil film resistance
(extended drain interval : on-board computer), detergent/dispersant power (ACEA B4) and requests
fuel economy performance : 1.7% fuel economy improvement versus a 15W-40 reference. The
specification MB 229.5 applies to all MERCEDES Gasoline engines, including AMG (in 5W-40
viscosity grade) except SLR, and to all MERCEDES Diesel without DPF engines.
The Porsche A40 standard requires extreme high shear resistance from the lubricant. This
specification applies to all PORSCHE engines, except Cayenne V6 and Diesel versions (for these
specific engines, use an approved Porsche C30 lubricant such as MOTUL 8100 X-clean+ 5W-30).
Renault has developed RN0700 and RN0710 standards for oils able to endure the most severe thermal
constrains along with modern after treatment systems compatibility.
The Renault RN0700 standard applies to all Naturally Aspirated Gasoline engines (except Renault
Sport) of RENAULT Group (Renault, Dacia, Samsung).
The RN0700 specification applies also to all RENAULT Diesel cars fitted with 1.5 dCi engines without
DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) having less than 100 hp output and 20 000 km or 1 year oil drain
The Renault RN0710 standard applies to all turbocharged Gasoline, Renault Sport and Diesel without
DPF engines of RENAULT Group (Renault, Dacia, Samsung).
The RN0710 specification does not apply to RENAULT Diesel cars fitted with 1.5 dCi engines without
DPF having less than 100 hp output and 20 000 km or 1 year oil drain interval which specifically require
a RN0700 lubricant. For the 2,2L dCi with DPF, use only an approved RN0710 lubricant, not a
The FIAT 9.55535-H2, M2 and N2 performance levels impose the engine oil to combine both ACEA
A3/B4 standard and 5W-40 viscosity grade in order to perfectly lubricate most of the Gasoline and
Diesel engines of FIAT, ALFA-ROMEO, and LANCIA produced before July 2007.
Drain interval : refer to manufacturers’ recommendations and tune to your own use.
MOTUL 8100 X-cess 5W-40 can be mixed with synthetic or mineral oils.
Before use always refer to the owner manual or handbook of the vehicle.
