Red Line Introduces Euro-Series Motor Oil

Red Line launches Performance Motor Oil Compatible with Latest Diesel and Gasoline Vehicles

  • Engineered with Mid-Saps chemistry and high-quality ester base stocks
  • Improved wear characteristics and more stability at high temperatures

Benicia, Calif. (May 2013) – Red Line Synthetic Oil Corporation introduces its line of Euro-Series Motor Oil, a full synthetic product that exceeds the specifications for today’s European gasoline and diesel vehicles requiring a low-ash oil formulation to suit specific emissions equipment.

Red Line’s new Euro-Series 5W30 (PN 12304) and Euro-Series 5W40 (PN 12404) are available in quart packaging and are unique to the ACEA C2 and C3 market segments. Each utilizes unprecedented, higher quality raw materials than other comparable products on the market, making them suitable for both everyday driving as well as for the high-temperature rigors of performance and track activity in vehicles with these specific chemistry requirements. .

Euro-Series 5W30 provides an upgrade opportunity for shops and enthusiasts requiring motor oil that is suitable for use in vehicles specifying VW AUDI 504.00/507.00, BMW Longlife-04, Porsche C30, GM dexos2™ and MB 229.31/229.51. These vehicles require motor oil with a very specific chemistry that is compatible with the latest diesel particulate filters and emissions equipment. Extended drain intervals and excellent fuel economy are major benefits of these ACEA C2 and C3-type motor oils. .

Euro-Series 5W40 is for high-mileage vehicle owners, hotter climates, and for BMW and Mercedes Benz customers with turbo diesel requirements (BMW LL-04, MB 229.31/229.51). Both Euro-Series products are recommended for API SM, SN, SL, and CF applications. .

“Many of the newer vehicles like the BMW 3-series, VW Golf and Passat, and Audi A4 have been under dealer service until recently,” said Cameron Evans, VP/COO of Red Line Synthetic Oil Corporation. “This means that independent workshops and enthusiasts are now looking for this answer that performs beyond the capability of factory fluids.”.
