These products will be manufactured to the latest industry specifications for light-duty, spark ignited motor oils and will exceed the API SP specification. SAE 0W-20, 5W-20, 0W-30 and 5W-30 grades will also exceed the requirements of the “Resource Conserving” designation and ILSAC GF-6A. They will be backwards compatible with previous API and ILSAC categories including API SN PLUS, API SN and ILSAC GF-5.

Major improvements in the new motor oil specifications include:

·         Improved resistance to low-speed preignition (LSPI) in gasoline direct-injection (GDI) and turbocharged engines demonstrated by new engine test (introduced with SN Plus)

·         Reduced wear and stretching of timing chains demonstrated with a new engine test

·         Improved oxidation resistance demonstrated with revised engine test on new hardware

·         Improved sludge and varnish resistance demonstrated with revised engine test on new hardware

·         Improved valvetrain wear resistance demonstrated with revised engine test on new hardware

The API Service donut will appear on API SP oils, and the API “Starburst” symbol will appear on the front labels of the resource conserving grades. These oils are backwards compatible.
