The ultra-low viscosity 0W-8 oil was created in partnership with Asian car manufacturers, which requested the special formulation to meet the tightening vehicle emissions and economy standards. Not only will ENEOS X Prime 0W-8 oil be supplied to manufacturers for factory fill requirements, it will also be available for oil changes by dealer networks and for DIY maintenance.
