Champion is ahead of the rest with the launch of its new oil for VW 508 00 / 509 00 Specification

The latest engines by VW/Audi engines with VW 508 00 / 509 00 specification, namely 2.0 TFSI 140 kW and 3.0 TDI CR 160 kW engines, demand a new breed of oil.

Champion Oils & Lubricants is ahead of the rest and has just launched Champion OEM SPECIFIC 0W20 LL FE to suit these engines.

The OEM SPECIFIC 0W20 LL FE, an ultra low viscosity oil that brings out the best in these new engines, is available in Ireland from Serfac Limited.

OEM SPECIFIC 0W20 LL FE advantages:

  • Over a 4 % fuel economy while maintaining performance;
  • Keeps emission systems in shape and prolongs their life;
  • Keeps engines cleaner, protects against wear and provides strong durability.


Liam O’Donohoe, commercial manager, Serfac Limited, commented: “Today’s lubricants must deliver more fuel economy while maintaining performance.  This low viscosity VW lubricant fits perfectly into that trend.”

In another recent development for the Champion brand, its product OEM SPECIFIC 5W30 C3 has just received the latest Mercedes Benz 229.52 Approval.

This specification applies to all Mercedes vehicles equipped with “BlueTEC” diesel engines with SCR.  Since it also meets specifications such as BMW LONGLIFE-04, GM Dexos 2 and VW 502 00/505 00/505 01, the OEM SPECIFIC 5W30 C3 is now one of the most technologically advanced lubricants on the market.

The MB 229.52 specification sets new boundaries.  Introduced by Mercedes-Benz, it is given to engine oils that can endure extreme thermal constraints and those that are suitable for use with almost all modern after-treatment systems.

This specification applies to all Mercedes vehicles that have a “BlueTEC” 6-cylinder diesel engine OM642 with Euro 6 exhaust gas norm, fitted with SCR (Selective Catalyst Reduction). Through the use of the AdBlue, this allows NOx treatment.

This new specification also requires improved cold flow properties to reduce friction. This extra requirement allows intense oil flow at start up, faster oil pressure build up, the faster raising of revs and the faster reaching of the operating temperature.
