Thanks for the VOA. I run this in my old man's Peugeot 406 HDi, does the trick.

This oil is not advertised as a fuel savings or "Friction Modified" oil but probably has enough ester content to provide some friction reduction.


Scars remind us of where we have been, but do not have to dictate where we are going.

I thought the 8100 was a III+ with some IV?

It's a different oil. I was completely unaware of the CRDi Specific until you mentioned it. It obviously part of their Euro diesel oil line since it only carries the API SN and ACEA A3/B4 rating while not carrying any of the US diesel oil approvals (CI, CJ, ect).

You generally won't see A3/B4 combined with anything API diesel except CF. CJ-4 and the like tend to be seen with E7, E9, that sort of thing.

thanks, I wouldn't go out of the way for either of these, better than the Valoline but still run of the mill and none TDGI friendly.

We're a Motul dealer and 8100 X-cess is the bulk oil we use for the majority of our customers vehicles. It carries the same (currently more) approvals than Mobil1s high oils, plus it's cheaper. Since I originally watched how well 8100 x-cess withstood 16k-20k drain intervals, I was sold.
