During the independent laboratory tests the oils had to prove they fully matched their specified viscosity and met with the level of manufacturer's approval claimed, with the popular VW standard 507.00 used as an example. Tests were also carried to see if the oil additives package could produce the desired performance in terms of low temperature use, friction reduction and effect on fuel consumption.
Mannol Energy Combi LL came out as the overall winner in this price-performance rating. The testers said it was the best performing oil for its viscosity and works very well in cold conditions. The testers were also surprised that the Mannol lubricant actually out performed a premium brand, much more expensive, oil also included in the tests for benchmarking purposes.
