The new 8100 POWER range features ESTER technology: a 100% synthetic formula derived from racing and based on Ester, ensuring exceptional resistance of the oil film at very high temperatures for maximum engine power and torque, as well as protection against wear. Stable oil pressure in all operating conditions, whether road or racing.
Turbocharged gasoline engines with direct injection have a certain risk of sporadic pre-ignition phenomena in the combustion chambers. This type of abnormal combustion is similar to a sporadic metallic noise from the combustion chambers and is sometimes associated with a short loss of power. This phenomenon, called LSPI for Low Speed Pre-Ignition, or also Rumble, generates very high pressure peaks in the combustion chamber that can lead to piston destruction and ultimately engine failure. For the latest generation of petrol engines, i.e. downsized, equipped with direct injection systems and turbochargers, API has developed the API SP standard for engine lubricants in order to guarantee the perfect integrity of these petrol engines in the face of the risk of these abnormal combustions.
Suitable for all types of petrol, leaded or unleaded, Ethanol E85, LPG, Diesel and biofuels.
