Hello BITOG. What do you all think about this oil for my 2016 Volvo V60 T5 Drive-E 2.0 Turbo? It's a bit spendy at $40 for 5 liters, but I want to keep things by the book while the car is under warranty at least. Volvo's recommendations in the owner's manual are very unclear to me. Am I safe switching to something like PP 5w-30 or Mobil1 0w-30 after the warranty runs out, or stick to this supposedly special Volvo formulation from Liqui Moly?

"Fully synthetic A5/B5 must be used." There you go, that is your minimum spec. You are good to go with a 5W-30 or 0W-30 A5/B5 fully synthetic oil. Also, FWIW, I have never been impressed by Liqui-Moly engine oils, based on both personal experience and seeing UOAs.

PP 5W-30 is rated A5/B5, so that would be acceptable during warranty.

This is what I would use as well. Can't go wrong with PP 5W-30. It's also HTO-06 rated, which means it can handle the high heat of turbos.

BTW you gonna have problems if you put a acea a1 spec after the warranty. Most be minimum a acea a5. But you can use a acea a3/b4 mobil 1 FS 0w-40

Really? Which one? I mean one that actually has the certification, not one that they say meets the requirements.

Cool. You said an Amsoil product carries A5, which one is that?

No, it does not have that certification. A recommendation for use is not the same thing as actual certification.

Amsoil have the spec. its stays in grade and have a HTHS between 2.9-3.5. Acea A5 is a thinner variant off Acea A3. Amsoil 5w-30 is way better than a acea a5 and can be used in a modern turbo engine with no problems. The acea a5 is a fuel saving oil that can bee used in a turbo car.Thats the point with this spec, try to run a 0w-20 in a turbo engine and do a UOA.
