5W30 oil from ADDINOL

The 5W30 engine oils from ADDINOL are manufactured from high-quality base oils and additives. In modern 5W30 oils synthetic base oils are used because they are thermally more resilient and remain stable over a longer time period. They offer optimum wear and corrosion protection and ensure a long service life for your engine. The oils have excellent starting and warm-up properties. Improved friction properties in the engine oil also reduce fuel consumption. Convince yourself of our 5W30 oils. With our Oilfinder you can check with which oil your car is compatible.

Information about 5W30

What does 5W30 mean?

If an engine oil has the specification 5W30, this refers to the SAE class according to which the oil was classified. The SAE class describes the viscosity of an oil, i.e. its flow properties as a function of the operating temperature. Engine oil with class 5W30 is a so-called multigrade oil. This means that it has good flow properties at both cold and warm operating temperatures. This is necessary in order to optimally lubricate the engine at all necessary points. "5W" stands for flowability at cold temperatures (W=winter). 5W30 Oil is still pumpable down to -35 °C, i.e. liquid enough to spread in the engine. The second figure "30" describes the fluidity of the oil at an operating temperature of 100 °C (operating temperature of most engines). The viscosity of 5W30 oil at 100 °C is between 9.3 mm²/s and 12,4 mm²/s. If the viscosity of the engine oil does not match, this may result in poor lubrication and engine damage. Therefore, pay close attention to the manufacturer's specifications of your car and only fill 5W30 oil into your car if it has been approved.

Parameters of SAE class 5w30
Performance parameters of SAE class 5W30

In general, 5W30 oils work best at outside temperatures from -35 °C to +40 °C. This makes them ideal for use in Europe, despite large temperature differences between winter and summer.

5W30 Longlife oil

Longlife oils are specially developed for engines that are designed for extended oil change intervals. This is referred to as the Longlife Service. They are very resistant to ageing and lubricate the engine over a long period of time. Normal oil change intervals of 15,000 - 20,000 kilometres can thus be extended to 30,000 - 40,000 kilometres. The replacement intervals are calculated by a board computer. This is programmed to the oil properties of the Longlife oil. Therefore the Longlife oil 5W30 must never be mixed with a conventional 5W30 oil. For this purpose ADDINOL offers the GIGA LIGHT MV 0530 LL, which has numerous approvals of renown OEM’s.

5W30 or 5W40?

The manufacturer's specifications state whether your vehicle can tolerate engine oil with SAE specification 5W30 or 5W40. You can also check in our oil finder which oil is approved for your vehicle as described above.

In principle the oils 5W30 and 5W40 differ only in the viscosity at 100 °C. 5W30 has a flowability of 9.3 mm²/s – 12,4 mm²/s, whereas 5W40 has a flowability of 12.5 mm²/s – 16,2 mm²/s. The 5W40 oil is therefore more viscous at 100 °C than 5W30. Depending on how the engine was designed, it is possible that the 5W40 oil is too viscous to build up an optimum lubricating film in the engine compartment. Both types of oil have their advantages and applications.

SAE classPropertyAdvantageApplication
5W30Flowability of 9.3 – 12,4 mm²/s at 100 °C, low viscosityLow resistance in the engine, saves fuelCars with low oil consumption
5W40Flowability of 12.5 – 16,2 mm²/s at 100 °C, more viscousReduces wear in the engine, high operational reliabilityCars with high oil consumption

Whether your car can handle 5W30 and 5W40 is determined by the manufacturer. Not every car type is approved for both SAE classes. Therefore, strictly adhere to the manufacturer's specifications.

Mix 5W30 and 5W40 engine oil

Therefore, we do not recommend to use 5W40 oil if your car only has a clearance for 5W30 oil. You should not mix 5W30 oil with 5W40 oil either. Engine oils can be mixed with each other, but there are certain risks involved. If, for example, 5W40 oil is dumped into an engine with 5W30 oil, the lubricating properties of the oil will change. Long-term damage to the engine cannot be ruled out in this case. Mixing 5W30 and 5W40 oil is only advisable if your car is approved for both viscosity classes. If you have accidentally added 5W40 oil to an engine with 5W30 release only, this is no reason for panic. The engine will not be damaged immediately. Nevertheless, we advise you to visit a workshop as soon as possible in order to carry out a complete oil change. The costs of an engine damage are substantially higher than those of an oil change.
