Oil specs comparison

Compliments of aioros @ bimmerfest.com


Here are a few examples of some of the car manufacturers' oil specs. 

The ACEA is the Asociation of AutomobileManufacturers of Europe. I believe their specs are tougher than their USA counterpart, the API or American Petroleum Institude.

Note that these specs don't call out grades of oil nor 'winter' spec. Most of the tougher specs use the oil base A3/B4-04, which is the only 100% synthetic oil base.
