Introduced in 2012, oils meeting this specification are recommended for all Ford diesel engines except Ford Ka TDCi models manufactured before 2009 and Ford Galaxy 1.9 TDi models manufactured between 2000 and 2006. Especially recommended for diesel engines where M2C913-B or M2C913-C oils were initially required. Oils meeting this specification can be used with extended oil change intervals and are also suitable to be used in engines running on biodiesel or high sulfur diesel.


Viscosity SAE 5W-40 engine oil for pump injector diesel engines. Ford’s code for VW specification 505 01. Equivalent performance includes ACEA A3/ B4/C3.
