This is why engine manufacturers rely on the latest technology for treating exhaust gas, both in gasoline engines and now also in passenger diesel engines. But long-lasting results can be achieved only if a suitable motor oil is selected. The MOTOREX solution: EDITION X-C1, EDITION X-C2, SELECT LA-X and PROFILE V-XL. For once, critical consumers and lawmakers are in agreement. Today, nine out of 10 buyers of new diesel vehicles demand that it have a diesel particulate filter (DPF) or other exhaust treatment system. This development is based on the latest findings regarding fine dust and PM 10 diesel particulate matter. At the same time, however, the standard for maximum pollutant emissions from internal combustion engines has been raised. Meeting the demands of the EURO 4 exhaust gas standard means assigning special importance to motor oil in the task of reducing pollutant emissions. And the introduction of the EURO 5 standard in 2008/2009 will require pollutants to be further reduced by more than half. DPF compatibility thanks to lowSAPS technology Diesel engines with diesel particulate filters react in a sensitive manner to ashforming SAPS (sulfate ash, phosphor sulfur) additives in motor oils. Sulfate ash causes premature clogging of filters, reducing their efficiency and their effective life. For this reason, the ACEA “C” standard requires special motor oils for diesel engines with exhaust gas treatment systems (see diagram ACEA C1– C3). The desirable properties of sulfur, phosphorus, and sulfate ash – including good lubricant properties, optimal wear protection, engine cleanliness, etc. – have been retained by MOTOREX through a newly developed additives package that uses the groundbreaking lowSAPS technology.

SELECT LA-X SAE 5W/30 is the first lowSAPS motor oil capable of being widely used in most passenger vehicle engines with exhaust gas treatment systems. SELECT LA-X SAE 5W/30 meets ACEA C3/A3/B4 and BMW LL-04 standards (retrofit-compatible) and MB 229.51 (previously MB 229.31). These three oils all feature: – The latest lowSAPS additives technology – Reduced particulate emissions in diesel engines –Increased particle filter life spans – Longer intervals between oil changes (LongLife) – Lower oil consumption MOTOREX PROFILE V-XL SAE 5W/30 This new high-tech motor oil with MOTOREX’s groundbreaking LowSAPS technology is ideal for all Volkswagen Group vehicles (VW, Audi, Seat and Skoda) that require VW specification 504 00/507 00 and ACEA standards C3/A3/B4. With just one oil you can cover all standards for VW and Audi engines with catalytic converters or particle filters, FSI and pump injector technology, with or without LongLife intervals. This not only simplifies repair shop work, it also offers such advantages as: For latest-generation Fords, Volvos, Mazdas and Jaguars For latest-generation Citroëns and Peugeots For latest-generation BMWs, Mercedes, Renaults, Nissans, Hyundais, Saabs and Kias For all modern VWs, Audis, Seats and Skoda – Compliance with VW standard 504 00/507 00 – Simple handling and storage – The latest lowSAPS additives technology – Reduced particulate emissions in diesel engines – Increased particle filter life spans – Longer intervals between oil changes (LongLife) Why lowSAPS technology? 1. Why are exhaust gas treatment systems used in diesel passenger vehicle engines? So that the emissions, including particulate emissions, can be lowered in accordance with current exhaust gas standards. 2. Can I continue to use the motor oil I was using before? Modern diesel engines with DPF should only use a “low-ash”, lowSAPS motor oil (ACEA C-class). If the oil you are using now meets the manufacturer’s requirements, you can continue to use it. 3. Why is it necessary to use a lowSAPS motor oil? The SAPS components that have been present in conventional motor oils until now have a negative effect in the diesel particulate filter. Over time, they can clog the filter. LowSAPS motor oils have a reduced content of sulfur, sulfate ash, and phosphorus. MOTOREX LowSAPS motor oils contain an innovative additive package that takes over the functions of the SAPS components.They also reduce particulate emissions. 4. Can I use a lowSAPS motor oil in a gasoline engine? Yes, because the ACEA C-class also meets the specifications for gasoline engines (ACEA A/B). Please follow the manufacturer’s recommendations! Do you have further questions about ACEA C and the new lowSAPS motor oils? Your MOTOREX partner can answer them quickly and capably.
