The engine was cleaned and filled with Shell Helix Ultra 0W-40. After 21 race km’s on the test track the oil was changed with Eurol Specialty Racing 0W-40 with SYNGIS Technology also with 21 race km’s on the same test track in Nordhorn, Germany.
46% less wear (11,8 vs 6,4 ppm iron in the engine oil), 0,6 bar higher oil pressure (3,9 vs 4,5) and 4,1°C lower oil temperature (88,1 vs 84,0).
The Eurol Specialty 0W-40 contributes significantly in wear and friction reduction compared to the Shell Helix Ultra 0W-40.
