BMW TwinPower Turbo 5w-30
Engine oil is one of the most important performance materials in modern, highly accelerated BMW engines. BMW engines traditionally place very strict demands on its properties.
To be approved for use, engine oil must not only have excellent lubricating properties but also have special properties and fulfill a number of essential functions: – provides engine protection that exceeds industry standards – maintains optimum cleanliness in BMW engines, and enables them to reach their full potential – has improved viscosity-temperature values for high fuel efficiency – has been extensively tested and approved for use by the BMW exhaust gasoline industry.
BMW TwinPower Turbo 5w-30 Description
BMW TwinPower Turbo Longlife-04 5w-30 is motor oil, developed using the latest Gas to Liquid technology. A synthesis procedure on natural gas molecules removes the complex hydrocarbon chains from the raw material, thus ensuring that the base oil is free from foreign substances.
In order to improve performance, the product is force-fed with additives. The components of the ZDDP group contain active zinc and phosphorus, which protect rubbing parts from accelerated wear and scuffing. Calcium-containing detergent base neutralizes sulphuric acid and cleans sludge deposits inside the crankcase and exhaust manifold.
Depressurizing agents help to retain the necessary fluidity at critical freezing temperatures. The synergistic effect of the contained components is to keep the engine running steadily under any operating conditions.
BMW TwinPower Turbo 5w-30 Advantages
- High viscosity index and its stability in all operating conditions
- Wide temperature range
- Excellent detergent and neutralizing properties
- Low vaporability and low carbon footprint
- Ensuring high fuel economy
- Keeping the engine spotlessly clean
- Powerful protection against corrosion and wear
When used correctly and following all manufacturer’s recommendations – and this is confirmed by positive product reviews – no shortcomings have been noticed.
BMW TwinPower Turbo 5w-30 Application
BMW TwinPower Turbo Longlife-04 5w-30 is intended to be used in the diesel power units of the brand-name engine produced after 2004. It is 100% compatible with catalytic converters, latest generation diesel particulate filters, and exhaust gas recirculation devices. The lubricant is suitable for all engine operating modes, including dirt, start-stop, and racing.
The manufacturer insists that the fluid must not be used when servicing petrol engines outside the European Union. This is due to the poor quality of fuel at local petrol stations.
