Technical characteristics

Viscosity of oil

Fluidity of oil – i.e. degree of its density or a razzhizhennost – should be suitable for application in the engine. Compliance to two criteria is necessary:

    It should not be too viscous as the starter should turn the cold motor so that after cold start oil reached at once all points of greasing. It should not be too liquid because at high temperatures and turns in an oil film there can be gaps.


On graphics recommendations of Audi/Volkswagen firms concerning viscosity of oil are shown:

And – all-weather oils according to the VW 500 00 standard;
In – all-weather oils according to the VW 500 01 standard.

The called parameters are understood as for a long time operating temperatures. Short-term fluctuations do not play a role.

Classes of oils SAE agrees

Society of autotractor engineers (Society of Automotive Engineers, the USA) divided all oils on degree of their viscosity into classes. Classification of engine oils begins with liquid winter oil (winter – Winter) SAE of 5 W, 10 W, 15 W, then an intermediate step of SAE 20 W/20 and comes to an end with viscous summer oils (summer – Sommer) SAE 30, 40 and 50.

Seasonal oil

Seasonal oil was the cheapest engine oil earlier. For optimum greasing of the engine in it it is necessary to fill in dense or liquid seasonal oil according to a season. Now seasonal oils almost are not on sale (Germany) means, but they still are often applied in vehicle fleets. Application of seasonal oil in Audi A4 is not provided.

All-weather oil

More trudozatratny in manufacturing and consequently more expensive, than seasonal oil, all-weather oil found today the widest application. For improvement of vyazkostno-temperature properties (VI) it contains in quality of an additive long chains of molecules which when heating inflate and are again compressed when cooling. In this regard oil can plastically adapt to temperature and according to the characteristics to cover some classes of viscosity. SAE 15 W-50 oil at temperature of-15 °C corresponds to a class of viscosity of 15 W and at 100 °C – to a class 50.

All-weather oils of the classes SAE 10 W-30 and 10 W-40 are not recommended for application in Audi engines in a warm season.
