Eurol introduces the Geo-Max FE 5W-20 and the Geo-Max SA 5W-30
The Geo-Max FE 5W-20 has a low viscosity, specifically developed for MAN and Scania engines where MAN M 3977 and Scania LDF-5 specifications are prescribed. MAN and Scania have been part of the Traton Group for several years. In the development of engines and transmissions, there is close cooperation and the new oil specifications from both truck manufacturers are often similar. This is also the case for the MAN M 3977 and Scania LDF-5 oil specifications.
The MAN M 3977 specification is specially developed to reduce fuel consumption, pollution, and CO2 emissions in the new MAN Euro VI-D engines. To make these savings possible, a low viscosity class and a lower HTHS value are important. The Scania LDF-5 specification has been prescribed for EURO VI Scania engines for several years. Particularly due to the low viscosity grade, the MAN M 3977 specification and also the SCANIA LDF-5 specification are not compatible with older specifications.
The Geo-Max SA 5W-30 also provides fuel savings in modern truck engines and meets the American standard API FA-4 and the Mercedes MB 228.61 specification based on it.
For the suitability of both fully synthetic engine oils for specific heavy-duty vehicles, use the Eurol Oil advisor via our website and app.
The Eurol Geo-Max FE 5W-20 is listed under item number E100172 and the Eurol Geo-Max SA 5W-30 under item number E100173. Both products are available in a 5-liter bottle, 20-liter bag-in-box, and a 210-liter drum.
