Motul has reformulated its 8100 ECO-LITE 5W-30 engine lubricant for the latest generation of downsized petrol engines which are sensitive to abnormal and sudden combustion incidents (Low Speed Pre-Ignition - LSPI). General Motors has already upgraded the specifications of its latest specification Dexos1 - GEN2.
Launched by General Motors for its direct injection, turbocharged gasoline engines, the second generation of Dexos1 specification (Dexos1 - GEN2) makes it possible to combat the phenomenon of LSPI (Low Speed Pre-Ignition) or ‘Rumble’, which is characterized by sporadic pre-ignition in the combustion chamber leading to the damage and eventual destruction of an engine.
With its expertise in the field of lubrication, Motul has adapted its engine lubrication technology to prolong the life of downsized petrol engines subject to LSPI.
The 8100 ECO-LITE 5W-30 engine lubricant has thus been reformulated to meet the requirements of General Motors Dexos1-GEN2 in order to:
- Combat the phenomenon of LSPI
- Reduce fuel consumption
- Reduce emissions pollutants
