    Great thread, people neglect one of the most important parts of the engine. Lubrication.
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    MOTUL sees each car manufacturers approval as the technical start point in achieving a high quality, high performance oil that is universally approved by all automobile manufacturers.

    MOTULs lineup consists of only top grade, premium quality oil products that are enhanced with additives, and developed using MOTULs extensive technological advancements in the racing arena. MOTULs products are also geared towards the average consumer.

    High performance products formulated by MOTUL complies with the ACEA and API industrial standards. Products by MOTUL are economical and exceed the performance standard of the standard recommended oil.

    BRIEF MOTUL HISTORY

    Established in New York over 150 years ago in 1853, MOTUL had its roots in the whale-oil business, used for lanterns. Owned by the Rockefeller Group and operated as a subsidiary of Standard Oil Company, the company was later managed and run by Swan Finch and in 1919, came to known as the Swan Finch Company.

    Having established its headquarters in the USA, the Swan Finch Company expanded its lubricant business and started exporting to Europe. In 1932, the Zaugg family, a French distributor bought out the Swan Finch Company, but kept the MOTUL brand name. The entire operation moved to France and the brand name MOTUL, was relaunched as a French brand.

    Focused on improving the reliability and performance of lubricants, MOTUL dramatically altered the lubrication industry by producing several worlds first and hence, set forth to shape the history of motor lubricants.

    1953 - the launch of the Worlds 1st Multigrade Motor Oil.
    1966 - the launch of the Worlds 1st Semi-Synthetic Motor Oil.
    1971 - the launch of the Worlds 1st 100% Synthetic Motor Oil.

    Till today, MOTUL continues in its tradition of producing superior quality lubricants by turning its technological innovations into real products for the automotive world. From Turbo Engine Oils to Catalytic Mufflers to Brake Fluids and Transmission Oils, MOTUL has been and continues to be the favored name.

    An environmental-conscious organization, MOTUL has concentrated its efforts in developing cleaner and more environmental-friendly products. MOTUL has also invested in recycling programs, offering consumers a cleaner and greener way of living. Currently headquartered in Paris, France, the MOTUL line of premium performance products is sold in 65 countries today

    I'm hoping to clear misconceptions with this topic, and hopefully provide the best solutions to you guys.

    I am a firm believer in the Motul product, seeing it perform wonderfully well on the track and off it.

    Not to mention, companies like Subaru, trust their rally teams to Motul Products, as well as Nissan for their supercars. Thats only a couple of examples of the vast array of high performance, top of the line teams, companies and cars that Motul works with.

    I love Motul brake fluid. Used to have to bleed my brakes after every 2 or 3 HPDEs, once I switched to Motul I could go all year.

    Motuls Brake Fluids are certainly an exceptional product. Let me know if you need any of it.

    Would you consider switching all of your fluids?

    I change my oil far too often to use anything but dinosaur oil on my budget, but I'll check out Motul for tranny/diff (currently using redline).

    What application? I can then suggest the correct fluid. And i find that the 4L jugs og the 6100 series (Pictured Below) are rather inexpensive.

    Steve,

    Gimme a suggestion here. 95+ deg F temps outside, turbo charged engine with an oil cooler. Seeing about 500HP and the engine has over 112,xxx miles. What motul engine oil do you recommend? Also for my 5 speed BMW trans made by ZF? Also going to need some brake fluid and I'm currently building a 700HP Isuzu 4cylinder, will need to feed that also. I've been looking into Motul for years but never budged.

    Gasoline and Diesel engine oil
    100% Synthetic

    TYPE OF USE
    Specifically designed for powerful and recent cars fitted with high displacement engines, gasoline, Direct injection turbo Diesel and catalytic converters. Numerous car maker approvals make this product multipurpose especially recommended when the car is under warranty. Suitable for leaded or unleaded gasoline, Diesel fuels and LPG.

    PERFORMANCES

    BMW ‘Long Life’ - PORSCHE
    Mercedes Benz 229.3

    * The OPEL/GM Diesel LL B-025 standard requires two main properties to the lubricant : high HTHS and very low volatility to drastically decrease oil consumption. Motul 8100 X-cess 5W-40 is especially recommended for OPEL 2.0 and 2.2 DTI engines (extended drain interval : computer on board).
    * The ACEA B4 performance requires an outstanding detergent/dispersent power and a better viscosity increase resistance due to soot produced by Direct Injection Diesel engines (excep VW unit injector engines that require MOTUL Specific 505.01 5W-40)
    * The MB 229.3 standard is more stringent than 229.1 in terms of ageing resistance (extended drain interval : computer on board ), detergent/dispersent power (ACEA B4) and requests fuel economy performance : 1.2% fuel economy improvement versus a 15W-40 reference.

    RECOMMENDATION
    Drain interval : refer to manufacturers’ recommendations and tune to your own use. MOTUL 8100 X-cess 5W-40 can be mixed with synthetic or mineral oils.

    I need some advice on oil for my 3.38 open diff. It has a whine to it on partial load and was thinking of using a heavier oil to quiet it down. Manual calls for 75w-90, but I want to switch to a 75-140. Do you see this as being detrimental to the diff gearing (slowin it down, being too viscous, etc) or would this be an OK choice without any downsides?

    Whine may not be from the oil. Likely from the diff itself and how it was broken in. It's not an OEM diff or is it?

    Sticky is probably right on this one. I dont see the lubricant to be a cause of the problem, although it may remedy it.

    i do not see any detrimental effects from switching weights. all i can say is try it and see how it works. maybe switching to a different brand 75w90 may do the trick as well...
