MPM's 05000DPF has been upgraded with a new additive package. This makes the product even more versatile. The dexos™ specifications and designations are being replaced because the PSA group is now working with its own OV specifications for older Opel models (year of manufacture < 2017).
The PSA group has been using the OV designation in its specifications for the new Opel models for some time. Following on from this, the OV designation will now be implemented on older Opel/Vauxhall models. This means that the dexos™ specification for Opel models will disappear altogether. In the future, dexos™ will only be used by General Motors which is developing its own specifications.
As MPM accurately follows car manufacturer requirements, changes to the new Opel OV specifications will be reflected in the 05000DPF range. What this means for you:
Upgrade 05000DPF Motor Oil 5W-30 Premium Synthetic C3 DPF
- The dexos2 approval is being replaced by the new Opel specification OV 040 1547-D30/G30.
- Wherever dexos2 was prescribed, the 05000DPF with specification OV 040 1547-D30 G30 can be implemented. D30 is the specification for diesel engines and G30 for gasoline engines.
- 05000DPF has been upgraded with a new additive package making the product more widely deployable.
05000DEX Motor Oil 5W-30 Premium Synthetic C3 GM
- The dexos2 specification is redundant.
- 05000DEX specifications are covered by the upgrade of 05000DPF.
- 05000DEX is being phased out.
05000DEX can be replaced with 05000DPF wherever it was prescribed.
05000DFI Motor Oil 5W-30 Premium Synthetic DFI
- Dexos2 specification is redundant for Opel.
- By virtue of the product upgrade, 05000DPF covers all other specifications for 05000DFI, such as BMW LL-04 approval for 2019 models onward, among others.
Because the 05000DPF is more widely deployable than 05000DFI, workshop work can be simpler and easier.
Important information in conclusion
MPM 05000DEX and 05000DFI will be phased out. The product information will remain visible in the recommendations on the MPM website for a minimum of 6 months.
