Gain the Power to Save on Fuel

Horsepower, acceleration and fuel economy are important aspects of the driving experience. Therefore, they are reoccurring factors where engine oil formulators, vehicle manufacturers but also drivers look for continuous optimization.

Wouldn’t it be nice to boost all three factors at the same time, together with an alternative approach to engine oil additives and an all in one package?

Just add BASF's innovative additive component IRGALUBE® FE1 to your engine oil's formulation and gain the power to save on fuel. The effect has been observed in racing oils and in those used for everyday passenger cars.
