New Jaguar Land Rover oil from Liqui Moly
Thursday, May 17, 2018
With the trend towards ever less viscous motor oils to facilitate lower fuel consumption and emissions continuing at pace, German oil and additive specialist LIQUI MOLY has developed a new oil specifically for Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles. Special Tec LR 0W-20 is officially approved by Jaguar Land Rover. This STJLR 51.5122 approval is required in the latest petrol engines in Jaguars and Land Rover models.

Oliver Kuhn, assistant laboratory manager at LIQUI MOLY says, "0W-20 is a particularly low viscosity motor oil. The engineers at Jaguar and Land Rover use this as one of many adjustment screws to reduce consumption and minimise emissions. After all, a thin oil can be more easily pumped and has less inside resistance. This means the engine loses less performance. The challenge is for such a thin oil to still reliably lubricate the engine even under extreme load."

Special Tec LR 0W-20 is a special development exclusively for Jaguar and Land Rover.Oliver says, “The two brands used to simply follow the oil specifications of their former owner, Ford, but since 2014 they have gone their own way. This takes them ever further away from Ford. That's why Special Tec LR 0W-20 is not suitable for any other models.”

Oliver points out that as well as the trend to ever more viscous oils, a further market trend is towards ever more specialist oils, which have a limited number of very specific applications. This means the variety of oil types will continue to rise and therefore it will become more and more difficult for garages and drivers to keep an overview. Oliver says the free online oil guide by LIQUI MOLY at offers a quick and convenient information solution where you just enter the make, model and engine to immediately view a list of the right oils.
