TYPE OF USE: Fully Synthetic "Fuel economy" engine oil specially designed for Hybrid Electric Vehicles (H.E.V) and Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (P.H.E.V) fitted with recent gasoline engines, turbocharged or naturally aspirated, direct or indirect injection, designed to use SAE 0W-16 oil with low friction and very low HTHS (High Temperature High Shear) viscosity (= 2.6 mPa.s); Suitable also for battery electric vehicles (B.E.V) fitted with thermal gasoline engine used as Range Extender; Suitable for modern gasoline engines requiring a viscosity grade SAE 0W-16 lubricant or a ?Fuel Economy? lubricant in viscosity grade 16: Standards API SN, API SN-RC and/or ILSAC GF-5.; Compatible with catalytic converters.; This type of oil may be unsuitable for use in some engines. Refer to the owner manual if in doubt; MOTUL HYBRID 0W-16 is specially formulated to meet the specific needs of hybrid electric vehicles, where multiples unexpected stops and starts of the Gasoline engine are involved during the different operating phases of the hybrid vehicle. This particular mode of operation of the internal combustion engine on a hybrid vehicle generates very specific constraints for the lubricant, and in this, MOTUL HYBRID 0W-16 fully meets all these requirements.
