0W30 Audi A6 Motor Oil

Increase the fuel mileage of your Audi A6 2.7L Turbo or 2.8L 30 Valve model
by using Ravenol WIV II fully synthetic performance low friction fuel-saving motor oil.

Blauparts' Audi Allroad 2.7T and Audi A6 2.8L test vehicles are experiencing a 1-2 MPG fuel mileage increase when using Ravenol's WIV 0w30 motor oil. We've also noticed a reduction / minimization of valve train (lifter and cam chain) noise when compared to other brand name synthetics.
The technical reasons why we're seeing these improvements:

Better Fuel Mileage

Ravenol's WIV 0w30 oil features the latest low HTHS viscosity synthesis technology. This reduces the engine's internal dynamic drag or friction. This translates into rotational energy loss through the engine's internal parts, oil pump, crankshaft, camshaft bearings, and contact areas between the valves and lifters. The minimizing of dynamic drag and reduction of the engine's rotational energy results in improved fuel economy and engine performance. Another result is that less throttle depression is required when compared to thicker oils to yield equal performance. Most drivers will notice more responsiveness through the engine's fast free like revving, especially during engine warm up cycles in cooler climates where instant oil circulation is required, and by owners who drive shorter distances / intervals. It should also be noted that the Factory Audi Owner Manuals for our 2003 Audi Allroad 2.7T states that the factory fill was SAE 0W-30 motor oil (see image below) and recommends using 0W-30 in all temperature ranges. This could have been for some of the above stated performance benefits. Audi A6 Engine Sludge vs CleanSynto

Reduction In Valve Train Noise

Over it's lifespan, your Audi may have used motor oils that were of marginal quality. When lesser quality oils begin to breakdown, the engine accumulates varnish buildup, which then reduces the oil's flow to valve train components. The most critical valve train component impacting fuel mileage on Audi V6 2.8L and 2.7L models are the hydraulic (motor oil) activated cam chain tensioners. These parts adjust (advances) camshaft timing to engine RPM. Overtime, using inferior oils can plug up the filter screen of the tensioners with varnish build up. Restricted oil flow to the cam chain tensioner reduces engine performance due to incorrect camshaft timing. It can also increase valve train noise, especially during cold start ups. Don't worry, Ravenol's WIV motor oil features revolutionary technology, that can solve these issues by cleaning the engine's internal parts, cam chain tensioner's screen, and other valve train components; improving engine performance and increasing fuel mileage.

Should I be concerned about a lighter weight oil?

Some owners have expressed concern regarding the use of a lighter weight oil (0w30) versus using a heaver oil weight (5w40). Epic advancements have been made by Ravenol with their production of motor oil. One example is Ravenol's use of HTHS (High Temperature High Shear) viscosity lubrication technology. We've had a lot of experience with different motor oils through our 24 years as a repair shop. In nearly all cases, modern SAE 0w30 oils will never reach lubricating-layer breakdown during normal street or highway use. For the lubricating layer to be exceeded, you would have to be at extreme track or race car RPMs for upward of 20-30 minutes straight. Ravenol WIV 0w30 is a high performance fully synthetic motor oil, made from the worlds finest base stocks and proprietary blend of advanced additives. For performance minded "daily drivers" who want the best for their Audi or Vw, there is no compromising when choosing Ravenol's WIV 0w30 and it's maximum lubrication effectiveness.

Audi 2.7 Manual Oil RecommendationSAE 0W - The viscosity SAE 0W ensures reliable cold starting in extreme temperatures, low cold-starting wear, and allows for the quickest possible supply of oil within the engine to all critical lubricating points.
SAE 30 - The high-temperature viscosity SAE 30 safely masters extreme stress in warmer temperatures. Thus, friction loss and wear are reduced in whatever temperature condition the engine finds itself operating in.

Factory Owner Manual

It should also be noted that the Factory Audi Owner Manuals for our 2003 Audi Allroad 2.7T states that the factory fill was SAE 0W-30 motor oil and recommends using 0W-30 in all temperature ranges. This could have been for some of the above stated performance benefits.

Other Benefits:

* Long life, extended oil change intervals for up to 10,000 miles. This revolutionary motor oil is manufactured in Germany to exact oil quality standards.
Note: If your engine internals are significantly varnished from poor quality motor oil (see picture above), you may wish to change your oil a little sooner the first time around using WIV in order to clean out the engine.
* You can also use Ravenol WIV for your Volvo, Saab, or Japanese Import that calls for 0w30 and meets the SAE or ACEA specification below.
* In cooler and cold climates (especially where instant oil circulation is desired during engine start up and warm up), as well as, short interval driving, Ravenol WIV 503 00 spec, can be used in place of any Vw 502 00 oil spec oil.
* Provides high oil film stability and excellent viscosity-temperature behavior for demanding high RPM European engine designs.
* Ravenol's WIV allows for faster oil circulation during the startup period for maximum lubrication protection.
* This is an excellent motor oil for Vw Touareg R5 V10 TDI requiring Vw 506 01.
* Meets VAG VW 503 00, 506 00, 506 01 Oil Specifications
* Meets SAE 0w30, ACEA A5/B5, SAE SJ/SL/CF Specifications
