Champion Euro Low-SAPS Motor Oil Is the Choice for Newer German Vehicles

Champion’s European 5W-30 Low-SAPS Motor Oil is a favorite among German car enthusiasts that typically own a newer Audi, Mercedes, Porsche, Volkswagen or BMW. This full-synthetic motor oil is proven to provide more protection, lower emissions, better fuel economy, horsepower and torque than other leading brands of European specific motor oils.

Clinton, MO -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/04/2021 -- A Low-SAPS (Sulphated Ash, Phosphorus and Sulphur) motor oil will have a lower Phosphorus and Sulphur content. These are the additives that generally comprise a significant portion of a motor oil's additive ingredients and are adjusted by a parts-per-million (PPM) particle count when added to a group 3+ full-synthetic base stock.

The finished product is designed for controlling oxidation, improving anti-wear, cleanliness, soot handling, reduced emissions, and improved fuel economy. Sulfated ash is not added to oil; it is the result of additives in the oil burning and creating ash kept to a minimum.

The Champion Low-SAP 5w-30 engine oil, Part #4436, has low ash characteristic, and is specifically formulated for European gasoline engines with 3-way catalytic converters as well as diesel engines with Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF). OEM recommendations and specifications require a Low-SAPS formula include ACEA C3-12, MS-10896, MS-11106, Mercedes 229.51, VW 50400, VW 50700, BMW Longlife-04, and Porsche C30 plus other vehicles that are EURO 4, EURO 5 or EURO 6 emission regulation compliant.

"The combustion process creates particles that accumulate in the small pores of the particulate filter or catalytic converter, plugging it and dramatically decreasing their lifetime. Today, Phosphorus and Sulphur, generally used to provide wear protection and maintain engine cleanliness are considered too harsh and harmful in large doses for catalytic converters. They prevent the catalyst from removing the toxic substances from the exhaust", stated Karl Dedolph of Champion Oil.

"Another parameter of Low-SAP oil is HTHS, or better known as High-Temperature / High-Shear. The viscosity of the oil, measured in HTHS, is related to the fuel economy and durability of your engine. HTHS viscosity is a measure of how well an engine oil protects during tough operating conditions, and influences factors such as fuel consumption and engine wear."

"Lower HTHS viscosity values can improve fuel economy and higher HTHS viscosity values can provide better protection for the life of your European engine. The trick is finding the right balance. Our lab technicians at Champion with the help of our additive suppliers have really found that correct formula balance for this oil that meets or exceeds the needed Euro specifications", added Dedolph.

Domestic API-Licensed Passenger Car and Euro High-SAPS motor oils can damage expensive exhaust devices, such as diesel particulate filters and catalysts. The European Automobile Manufacturers' Association (ACEA) and their original equipment manufacturers (OEM) realized the importance of using motor oil formulated with precise SAPS levels. Such as Champion's European 5W-30 Low-SAPS Motor Oil.

To determine the correct motor oil recommendation, you should always consult the vehicle owner's manual for the recommended OEM specification, viscosity and drain interval. Champion Euro Oils are formulated to meet the unique demands of sophisticated European vehicles, delivering excellent all-season performance, maximum fuel economy and enhanced turbocharger protection.
