For the formulations the market needs

GM is a mission-critical customer with a 20% share of the new passenger car and light duty vehicle sales in North America. They also have 10% of new passenger car sales in China, equating to a third of GM’s global new car sales.


Robust dexos®1 Gen 3 oils demand driven by GM’s large share of the vehicle park, despite GM’s commitment to electrification.

SAE 0W-20

End consumers drive for higher fuel economy leads to rapid growth in low viscosity grades adoption for GM vehicles.

  • Performance excess

Meets GM’s Gen 3 fuel economy requirements, exceeds API SP-RC requirements

  • SAE 0W-20 Sequence VIE passes fuel economy tests at SAE 0W-16 Sequence VIE limits
  • SAE 5W-30 passes at SAE 0W-20 Sequence VIE limits
  • Lower SASH level ~0.7% provides outstanding compatibility with the latest after-treatment systems, including GPFs, to meet the most stringent global emission legislation, notably China 6b

Lower treat rate + excellent fuel economy + lower emissions = real world CO2 credits

Superior engine cleanliness and protection
(Broad performance advantages)

Cleaner, longer-lasting protection, beyond dexos®1 Gen 3 limits

  • Optimized to prevent sludge and varnish with advanced cluster dispersant

  • Turbocharger protection from balanced detergent system - far beyond GM’s requirements

  • Outstanding control of deposits and oxidative viscosity growth

  • Combine with Infineum SV Technology to deliver superior shear stability and cold start performance

LSPI Prevention

Next level protection against engine failures due to LSPI events

New detergent system delivers pre-ignition protection far exceeding even GM’s tough SPI specifications. Performance head room to accommodate future LSPI demands.
