ENEOS Announces X Prime 0W-8 Coming in 2023

ENEOS X Prime 0W-8 was developed for use in the latest Hybrid EVs and Plug-in Hybrid EVs where 0W-8 is specified.

As recently unveiled in the New Products Showcase at SEMA 2022, ENEOS USA Inc. has announced that ENEOS X Prime 0W-8 Fully Synthetic Motor Oil will be available in Spring 2023.

The ultra-low viscosity 0W-8 was created in partnership with Asian OEMs, which requested the special formulation to meet stringent emissions and economy standards. Not only will ENEOS X Prime 0W-8 oil be supplied to manufacturers for factory fill requirements, it also will be available for oil changes by dealer networks and for DIY maintenance.

Applications

ENEOS X Prime 0W-8 is 100% synthetic oil developed in partnership with Asian automakers for use in the latest Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV) and Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV) where 0W-8 is specified. This currently includes vehicles from Honda, Toyota, Nissan and Mitsubishi. The oil also is suitable for Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV) fitted with thermal gasoline engines used as a Range Extender. A number of 2023 production vehicles will require 0W-8 including the Toyota Yaris, Honda Fit, and Nissan Dayz.*

Testing & Standards

ENEOS says it extensively market-tested X Prime 0W-8 in Japan for nine years to produce this optimized formula, which provides extreme fuel efficiency with maximum engine protection, while meeting the required domestic standards. ENEOS helped establish the JASO GLV-1 specification, creating and establishing the testing methods while performing engine testing methods with OEM-provided test engines. ENEOS 0W-8 meets these new JASO GLV-1 standards. No API or ILSAC 0W-8 testing standards currently exist, according to ENEOS.

Packaging

ENEOS USA Inc. will release ENEOS X Prime 0W-8 in single (1) Quart containers (part #3000-300). More information will be available closer to production.
