The right oil for your vehicle

1) Generally, you can find specifications relating to manufacturer approvals on the oil containers or as a notice displayed by the retailer.
The current approval status is also available from your authorized Porsche dealer.

2) SAE viscosity class - Example: SAE 0W - 40 Specification 0W = Viscosity specification for low temperatures (winter).
Specification 40 = Viscosity specification for high temperatures.

3) For all temperature ranges.

4) For the temperature range over 13 °F (–25 °C)

Always observe the following points:

  1. Use only engine oils approved by Porsche.
    This is a precondition for optimum and problem-free driving.
  2. Regular oil changes are part of servicing. It is important that the service intervals, particularly the oil change intervals, are observed in accordance with the specifications in the Maintenance Schedule.
    We recommend that you have the engine oil changed at your authorized Porsche dealer.
  3. Oils approved by Porsche can be mixed with each other.
  4. Porsche engines are designed so that no oil additives may be used.
  5. A label is located in the engine compartment, which provides you with information on suitable oil for your engine.
