Land Rover Engine Oil Specifications and Types

In the mid 1990's Land Rover began using their own internal engine oil quality specification system. The engine oil quality specifications and standards were put in place to ensure that a higher quality level of engine oil would be used rather than broader and more general API or ACEA oil quality specifications. The new specifications and standards ensure optimal engine reliability and longevity. There are currently 6 different engine oil quality specifications that have been established for Land Rover engines since the mid 1990’s. Each Land Rover oil quality specification denoted by letters and numbers, signifies the necessary oil chemical properties and performance level required for specific Land Rover engine applications. Land Rover engines that experience mechanical issues or failures can be attributed to the prolonged use of low to mid quality engine oils that are not in accordance with the Land Rover engine oil quality standards. Using the correct Land Rover oil specification as suggested by Land Rover for your engine type will offer the best possible engine performance, protection, and longevity. Below you will find a brief overview and explanation of the Land Rover engine oil specifications along with the basic engine application they coincide with.

How to confirm which Land Rover oil specification is right for your engine?

Always consult your service manual and confirm the exact specific fluid and oil requirements for your specific Land Rover engine application. The recommended Land Rover oil, specifications, quality standards, and oil viscosity weight are specified in your owner's manual. These specifications can typically be referenced in the owner's manual index under engine oil or operating fluids. If you have lost your owner's manual and are having difficulty determining what type of Land Rover oil to use, you may wish to refer to our BLAU® Oil Change Kits for your Land Rover model. Our oil change kits conveniently include the correct Land Rover oil type, amount of oil, oil filter, and hardware for each specific model and engine type.

Consult your owner's manual for the correct type of Land Rover oil that is to be used for your specific Land Rover model. The Land Rover oil specifications referenced in the article are used internationally. However, the Land Rover engine and year applications referenced apply only to Land Rover models available in the USA.

Land Rover STJLR.03.5003 Oil Specification

The Land Rover STJLR.03.5003 was Land Rovers first oil quality specification released for USA models. This oil specification was primarily used and developed for select gasoline and diesel engines without diesel particulate filter systems. In the USA Land Rover recommended this oil quality specification for the 4.2L and 4.4L V8 gasoline engines up to 2009. 3.2 liter V6 gasoline engines up to 2012, and the 2.0 liter turbocharged gasoline engines up to 2017. The Land Rover STJLR.03.5003 specification will always require a Full SAPS or Full Ash (Full Sulphated Ash Phosphorus Sulfur) additive level formulation, suitable for extended oil change intervals, and should have a minimum high temperature high shear viscosity HTHS of 2.9 to 3.5 mPa*s. The Land Rover STJLR.03.5005 oil specification will always correspond to an ACEA A5/B5 specification and SAE 5W-30 viscosity. Also, the original Land Rover STJLR.03.5003 oil specification may have referenced the ACEA A1/B1 specification. This is now obsolete and has been updated and replaced by ACEA A5/B5.

About USVO® Technology

Proven German engineered CleanSynto® technology now with added USVO® technology. USVO® technology is ultra-strong viscosity oil based on fully synthetic PAO (Poly-alpha-olefin) and or Ester base oils. USVO® technology provides an extreme high viscosity stability and avoids the disadvantages of using added polymeric viscosity improvers. This allows for an exceptionally higher level of engine protection, performance, engine cleanliness and longer oil drain intervals. This exclusive technology allows the oil to have no shear losses during the entire oil change interval while being extremely stable to oxidation. This technology also helps the oil to flow and lubricate faster, minimize friction, supports improved fuel economy, and keeps the engine clean and efficient. Some USVO® technology engine oils also utilize the positive properties of molybdenum and tungsten to smooth the internal surface structure of the engine, reducing friction and wear, and significantly improving mechanical efficiency. All of this provides cutting-edge engine protection, performance, and cleanliness.

Simply put Ravenol USVO® technology oils are setting a new standard in synthetic oil technology! Compared to others, they are using superior fully synthetic engine oil formulations. Minuscule breakdown or loss in viscosity during an entire extended oil change interval. If you’re looking for some of the best engine oils available, the USVO® products are your best option.

About CleanSynto® Technology

CleanSynto® technology reduces the deposit of soot and dirt particles so that oil can reach critical lubricating points more effectively, keeping your engine clean longer. This can dramatically improve engine efficiency and significantly reduce the risk of engine problems and damage in the future. With conventional oils and even many synthetics use inferior refined base oils and conventional additives. This type of standard formulation is sufficient for some applications but provides less long term protection. Soot and dirt particles can leave deposits or sludge, which may result in blocked crankcase hoses, filters, pumps, etc. Engine efficiency and life span then begins to decline.

Ravenol is revolutionizing motor oil with CleanSynto® technology! Superior quality synthetic base stocks and advanced German engineered additive packages outperform other brands and provides maximum lubrication during extended mileage oil change intervals. CleanSynto® technology improves engine cleanliness thus maximizing the engine's life span.
