Can a 5W30 oil be API SN, ACEA A3 and Ilsac GF5 at the same time? It has the Starburst symbol and is marked resource conserving, too.

Generally, C3 should not work, because HTHS is too high. When M1 ESP 5w-30 was first on our shelves, it had the ILSAC rating, too, which seemed peculiar. The phosphorus limits are obviously within reason.


Plain, simple Garak.

Ravenol is a large, reputable company. I would say it's definitely possible. Shoot them an email and ask them about it.

No, it cannot. It could meet Api SN , GF5 and ACEA C1/C2. Based on a additive package and dynamic viscosity, not on the actual performance.
