TYPE OF USE
High performance 100% Synthetic Fuel Economy Engine Oil specially designed for all PSA Groupe vehicles (Peugeot,
Citroën and DS) fitted with latest generation of Gasoline and Diesel engines (HDI engines with or without DPF) requiring an
approved PSA B71 2290 oil and meeting Euro 4, 5 or 6 emission levels.
Suitable also when a "Fuel Economy" lubricant is requested: Standard ACEA C2.
Engine lubricant meeting the specifications of the PSA B71 2290 standard from PEUGEOT CITROËN DS AUTOMOBILES
for PSA Group vehicles.
Compatible for catalytic converters and Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF).
Some engines can not use this type of oil, before use always refer to the vehicle owner’s manual.
STANDARDS - ACEA C2
APPROVALS - PSA Groupe PSA B71 2290
Engines compliant with Euro 4, 5 and 6 emission regulation are fitted with sensitive exhaust gas after treatment systems.
Indeed, Sulfur and Phosphorus inhibit catalytic converters operation leading to inefficient exhaust gas treatment; and
Sulfated Ashes clog DPFs leading to shorten regenerating cycle, quick oil aging, higher fuel consumption and engine
PSA for its B71 2290 norm requires oil to able to endure the most severe thermal constrains along with PSA modern after
treatment systems compatibility. PSA B71 2290 standard is suitable for most PSA Gasoline engines and most Diesel
(including DPF versions) engines, except for “BlueHDi” Diesel fitted with SCR (in this case use MOTUL SPECIFIC 2312
Turbocharged gasoline engines with direct injection have a certain risk of sporadic pre-ignition phenomena in the combustion chambers. This type of sporadic abnormal combustion resembles metallic noise from combustion chambers and is
sometimes associated with a short power loss. This phenomenon called LSPI for Low Speed Pre-Ignition, or also Rumble,
generates very high pressure peaks in the combustion chamber that can lead to piston damages and ultimately to engine
destruction. For their latest-generation downsized gasoline engines, which are equipped with direct injection systems and
turbochargers, PSA has developed the B71 2290 standard for engine lubricants in order to guarantee the perfect integrity
of these gasoline engines facing the risk of these abnormal combustions.
MOTUL SPECIFIC 2290 5W-30 meets all these very demanding requirements of performance and durability set by PSA including in particular for the PSA B71 2290 norm for PSA vehicles, this LSPI requirement to perfectly protect all direct
injection turbocharged gasoline engines, and the full compatibility to biofuels use such as biodiesel, when using biodiesel at
a mix ratio of up to 10% (Biodiesel – B10).
Drain interval: refer to manufacturer’s recommendations and tune to your own use.
Do not mix with non PSA B 71 2312 approved oils.
Before use always refer to the vehicle owner’s manual.
