Top Tec 4200 5W-30

Can be used universally for the latest engine technologies from Audi, BMW, Mercedes and the VW Group.
The high-tech low-viscosity motor oil based on synthetic technology, the Longlife 3 generation, takes advantage of high performance reserves to ensure excellent engine cleanliness. Exceeds the strictest test requirements demanded by renowned manufacturers. Reduces the formation of harmful deposits in direct injection gasoline and diesel engines (FSI, TDI, common rail etc.). Keeps oil consumption low. Secures the functional performance of the diesel particulate filter (DPF) and ensures the longest possible service life. With improved wear-protection formula. Especially for vehicles with extremely long oil change intervals (WIV etc.).

Available pack sizes

4 l Canister plastic (Part No. 3715)

1 l Canister plastic (Part No. 8972)

Technical Data Sheet


Top Tec 4200 is a state-of-the-art all-season low-friction motor oil for vehicles with gasoline and diesel engines with and without diesel particulate filter (DPF) – even when retrofitted (Exception: TDI engines R5 and V10 before year of manufacture 06.2006). Fulfills the requirements according to the emission standards Euro IV, V and VI. The combination of unconventional base oils using HC synthetic technology, together with the latest additives, guarantees a motor oil that provides exceptional protection against wear and reduces oil and fuel consumption, while ensuring fast oil penetration of the engine. As such, oil change intervals of up to 30,000/50,000 km (or every 2 years for low mileage drivers) are possible as per the manufacturer’s specifications. In addition, Top Tec 4200 5W-30 is best suitable for gas fuelled (CNG/LPG) passenger cars.

Intended use

Areas of application

Appropriate for Benzin and Diesel engines with and without prolonged service intervals respectively flexible interval as well adequate for engines with and without exhaust after treatment such as Diesel particulate filter (DPF). Many car manufacturers are already requesting such a specification.


The operating instructions of the vehicle and engine manufacturers must be followed.

Full effectiveness and protection for the diesel particulate filter are only guaranteed when the product
