Liqui-Moly U.S.-Spec Engine Oil Information

As an owner of a new (to me) E70 X5, I have been researching various oils to use with the car. If you have ever done internet motor oil research, I'm sure you are aware of how daunting (and comical) the task is.

Anyways, I have always heard great things about Liqui-Moly, but was concerned their U.S. and Euro market formulas were different, so I reached out to Liqui-Moly's U.S. sales rep. (Remeber that in Europe, oil companies can't call an oil "Fully Synthetic" unless it is a true Group IV (PAO) or Group V (ester), which are superior to Group III (hydrocracked crude). After emailing back and forth, I thought I pass along the information that was passed along to me.

1. The only oils sold in the U.S. that are a Group IV base stock are Synthoil Energy 0W-40 and Synthoil Race Tech GT1 10W-60. All other oil is Group III base stock. I was interested in Synthoil Energy, however, it is only LL-98 approved. According to the rep I spoke to, it has an "old" additive pack, and was marketed towards older BMWs. IMO, this could be a great option an additive supplement such as BG MOA.

2. They have a new oil called Special Tec LL 5W-30. It is LL-01 approved, and also passes the stringent MB 229.5 standard. It is a Group III base stock, however, the rep explained why their Group III base stock is superior. I in-part believe him given that you aren't going to find it for $5 a quart at walmart like you can with Mobil 1.

Anyway, I thought I would pass along the info. I plan to use Synthoil Energy with BG MOA in my E70 X5. This will result in an oil with a superior base stock to most "synthetic" oils available here in the U.S., along with an excellent anti-wear and cleansing additive pack. I also prefer the slightly thicker viscosity of the 0W-40 as compared to the 5W-30 oil (40º/100º C viscosities of 80/14 vs 68/12). Cheers.
 
Don´t Focus only on the base stock ... If there is a given OEM oil spec. better follow this without focusing only on the base oil...
Regarding to an API chart in the year 2011 more than 50% of all oils were made on group III Hydro-crack base oil, only 2% were made on group IV PAO base oil.
As soon as an engine oil is approved by OEM ( for your B48 engine Longlife -01 is requested ) this oil is suitable for use - no matter which base oil is in use.


Liqui Moly has two BMW Longlife -01 approved engine oils in the North American range, it´s the Special Tec LL SAE 5W-30 and the Leichtlauf High Tech SAE 5W-40.

By adding an additional additive into an oil without the requested approval you can not "lift" it up to an approved oil. You just increase one piece of the "puzzle" engineoil.

I recommend to use an approved oil and use an additive to increase performance and durability. Therefore Liqui Moly also has some special products such as Cera Tec or the Oil Additive ...

I've been using this oil for a while now since switching from Mobil 1 and I can't say enough good things about it.
Mobil 1 is a great oil and frankly more readily available than this stuff and oh cheaper to-boot. But for my "baby"
nothing is too good. I have to say that I am pleasantly surprised at how well Liqui Moly holds up after 6k miles.
Still golden color and minimal burn off / oil loss. Maybe it's psychological but it feels like my engine runs happier,
smoother and quieter with this product. During my most recent oil change I also used Liqui Moly ProLine Engine
Flush before draining the old oil and it was amazing to see the amount of sludge / deposits that were in the system
even though I religiously change my oil every 5-6k miles though product is rated for 10k+ change intervals. I also
added Liqui Moly Createc friction reducer to the new oil. Jury is still out as to the effect it will have but if my experience
with the other products is any indicator I should be pleased with the results.

Now, I did my research before using these products and everyone out there has an opinion on everything from "don't
believe the hype" to aspiring chemists who give you their take on the class / chemical make up of the base and product.
You'll go nuts reading and making sense of it all so my recommendation is go with your gut and choose the product that
YOU feel works best...especially for your wallet. You can't go wrong with Liqui Moly, Mobil 1 or any of the other FULL
SYNTHETIC oils. I did read however that in the US, oil manufacturers can call their product full synthetic is it has synthetic
components whereas the products that originate from Europe / Germany must be 100% synthetic in order to carry the label.
Makes me even happier to be using Liqui Moly manufactured in Germany. There are Liqui Moly products made in the USA
so make sure the bottle says Made in Germany to be sure you are getting a Full Synthetic product.

Please note: If you car is under manufacturer warranty though technically it cannot void the warranty even if dealer says
otherwise, as a matter of personal preference I would only use the oil and not the additives like the flush or friction reducer.
No sense getting into a war of words with the dealer/manufacturer. Since my car is a 2002 the only person I have to negotiate
with is myself.
