We would like to inform you about the new launch of our HIGHTEC SYNT RS C5 SAE 0W-20 (item no. 20379).

With ACEA C5, the European Automobile Manufacturers Association created a category developed especially for fuel-saving engine oils.

With its reduced HTHS viscosity, the newly launched HIGHTEC SYNT RS C5 SAE 0W-20 complies with this special fuel-economy specification and is characterised by a number of additional manufacturer specifications. This makes it ideally-suited for state-of-the-art Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Volvo and Opel models, as well as numerous other vehicle brand manufacturers’ models.

It is used in accordance with manufacturer specifications and facilitates utilising the best possible fuel economy potential of modern engine concepts. This way, operating costs are reduced. In the course of development, equally important topics, such as best wear resistance or long replacement intervals headed the list of requirements.
