Upgrade accomplished successfully
FUCHS has qualified all its products to ACEA 2016 and will have updated its product information as of December 2018. Therefore, you can be sure that our engine oils continue to provide excellent protection for your engine and meet the latest requirements. For products that were previously specified according to ACEA A1/B1, we now have this claim as a recommendation, as A1/B1 has been discontinued by ACEA.
What has changed?
- New materials and the increasing number of modern direct-injection engines with turbocharges has required the inclusion of two new engine tests.
- The share of alternative fuels such as biodiesel is becoming more and more important. Therefore, the compatibility with biofuels plays an ever-increasing role.
- These new fuels as well as higher combustion temperatures can lead to more oxidation and thus oil thickening. The suitability of the engine oil is checked with two oxidation tests.
- For supercharged engines, the cleanliness of the turbocharger is essential. The tendency of the engine oil to form deposits is judged in a corresponding engine test.
- The industry-wide efforts to reduce fuel consumption and thus CO2 and other emissions also effect the engine oil. Especially for ACEA 2016 the ACEA C5 category was introduced, which addresses this issue.
- New engines are using modern sealing materials. Engine oils must be compatible with these, which is determined in studies of elastomer compatibility.
(Mannheim, November 14, 2018)
Die ACEA (Association des Constructeurs Européens d'Automobiles) is an association of the 15 most important car manufacturers in Europe. Among other things, it defines minimum requirements for engine oils in the so-called ACEA sequences. These are adjusted at certain intervals to meet the current demands of the European automotive industry. The last update from 01.12.2016 comes into force on 01.12.2018 for all product claims after a transitional period of two years.
TITAN Supersyn D1 SAE 0W-20
The American Petroleum Institute (API) has released an extension of the API SN specification: API SN PLUS. This enhancement has a special focus on a common problem in the gasoline engine sector: Low Speed Pre-Ignition (LSPI). This premature ignition of the gasoline-air mixture in the combustion chamber occurs primarily in small, high-turbocharged gasoline engines at low speed. For the user, this is noticeable by loud "knocking" from the engine compartment and can lead to heavy damage. The additional test procedure Sequence IX in the API SN PLUS is intended to reduce the risk of LSPI. Like all previous API S * specifications, API SN PLUS is fully backward compatible with previous API S * categories.
Expansion of the TITAN Supersyn D1 range
To make the advantages of the TITAN Supersyn D1 technology available for an even wider range of applications, FUCHS has developed another product: TITAN Supersyn D1 SAE 0W-20. This product was added to the portfolio as a follow-up to TITAN SYN SN SAE 0W-20. TITAN SYN SN SAE 0W-20 will no longer be available in the foreseeable future. TITAN Supersyn D1 SAE 0W-20 is based on the technology of the SAE 5W-30 version and opens further possibilities and areas of application due to the added viscosity class.
- Protection against LSPI. Proven by the API SN PLUS
- Reduction of fuel consumption. Confirmed by the RC (Resource Conserving) version of the API SN PLUS
- Approved according to dexos1™ Gen 2.
The relevance of the dexos1 ™ Gen 2 continues to increase in Europe. This specification is still being used by OPEL despite the acquisition of PSA. Whether there will be a change here and how it will be carried out is not known now. The API SN PLUS RC and ILSAC GF-5 specifications are relevant for different manufacturers, either as a base specification for their own specifications or directly as a specification for the application. This affects both Asian manufacturers such as Nissan, Subaru, Toyota, Lexus and Infiniti, as well as American manufacturers such as Ford and Chrysler. The trend towards low-viscosity engine oils is particularly pronounced among Asian manufacturers, which is why the TITAN Supersyn D1 SAE 0W-20 represents an ideal supplement for these manufacturers.

TITAN CARGO LD4 SAE 5W-30
New Ultra High Performance engine oil especially for extended change intervals in Scania Euro VI applications
TITAN CARGO LD4 SAE 5W-30 was developed as an extension of our TITAN CARGO series especially for the SCANIA LDF-4 specification. This makes the engine oil suitable for use in Scania D9, D13 and gas engines with an emission class from Euro I to Euro VI. Thanks to this backward compatibility, TITAN CARGO LD4 SAE 5W-30 ensures problem-free year-round operation in almost all engines of Scania and thus offers great rationalization potential (see illustration below). The only exceptions are Scania's V8 engines, which rely on a SCANIA LDF-3 or SCANIA LA specification. However, these are already covered with TITAN CARGO LD3 SAE 10W-40 or TITAN CARGO MAXX SAE 5W-30.
The SCANIA LDF-4 specification was introduced to meet the requirements of modern Euro VI engines and the correspond-ing exhaust aftertreatment systems. With this specification, TITAN CARGO LD4 SAE 5W-30 achieves longest oil change intervals in long-distance and local traffic. In contrast to oils with SCANIA LDF-3 specification, the service life of particle filters can be doubled and fuel consumption reduced by 0.5%.
Overview of specifications, approvals and FUCHS recommendations
