What is ACEA C5 Engine Oil. Should I Be Using This Oil?
The European Automobile Manufacturers Association (ACEA) works to implement standards for European vehicles. ACEA also creates the specifications known as sequences for the lubricants used in those vehicles. During 2016 ACEA introduced the ACEA C5 specification which is a mid-saps oil with a HTHS viscosity in the range from ≥ 2.6 to ≤ 2.9 mPa*s. Thanks to its very low viscosity and outstanding fluidity this oil significantly reduces wear, provides higher fuel savings and lower CO2 emission.
C5 oils are aftertreatment compatible and intended for use in highly loaded direct-injection gasoline and diesel engines. In addition to delivering high fuel economy, the C5 specification includes additional tests, such as a test to ensure high oxidation stability and compatibility with bio-fuels.
