Frequently asked questions about Quartz INEO Synthetic Motor Oils;

Q: I thought Mercedes and VW required a Quartz Ineo OW40 or a 5W40?

A: The viscosity grade does not determine the suitability of the oil for a specific application, the manufacturer approval is the final word. The new additive chemistry used in INEO MC3 5W30 provides improved protection in cylinder wear, bore polishing, and cam wear tests, including a 20% improvement in the VW unit injector wear test.

Q: Will my customer get better fuel economy with 5W30?

A: European-specific oils are typically thicker than North American oils due to their use in gasoline and diesel engines. The new ACEA C3 standard, however, requires an increase of 1 % fuel economy under stop-and-go city driving conditions.

Q: How will this oil perform in domestic diesel?

A: Quartz INEO MC3 5W30 meets the most stringent Mercedes Benz, BMW and Volkswagen diesel engine standards including direct injection, common rail technology, diesel particulate filters and NOX catalysts. It will provide all the engine protection, soot acid and sludge control needed for domestic diesel engine.

Quartz INEO 5W30 meets the very latest BMW LL-04 standard. The BMW LL-04 standards require hundreds of hours of severe testing at the BMW factory in addition to the ACEA A3/B3 standard that appears on the BMW Genuine Oil sold in North America.
