RAVENOL USVO® VMP 5W-30 Engine Oil is a PAO (Polyalphaolefin) based, fully synthetic low friction motor oil with unique USVO and CleanSynto technologies. It has full OEM approval from BMW, Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche, and is recommended for passenger car petrol and diesel engines with and without turbo-charging and direct injection. It minimises friction, wear and fuel consumption and has excellent cold start characteristics.

RAVENOL USVO VMP 5W-30 Engine Oil was developed for fuel economy and energy conserving in EURO VI, EURO V and EURO IV Standard engines with normal and extended oil change intervals (up to 30,000 miles or 2 years possible). It has a low volatility, leading to low oil consumption, and the special additives actually protect the DPF and TWC in diesel cars, extending the life.

Due to significant fuel economy improvements RAVENOL USVO VMP 5W-30 Engine Oil contributes to conserving the environment by reducing the level of pollutant emissions. Minimal wear properties extend the lifespan of the engine, and the special base oil formula ensures a optimal lubrication safety in the cold running phase. Recommended by Audi for use in the Audi Sport TT Cup race car engines.

This has to be without exception one of the most technically advanced 5W-30 engine oils available from any manufacturer and our absolute "Best Seller"!

USVO Technology

Ravenol has made it their mission to master the technological challenges of the future of lubricants and have therefore developed the ultimate in automotive lubrication technology......USVO® 

What is USVO® technology?

Lubricant requirements for modern vehicles are becoming increasingly demanding, with unwanted changes in viscosity quickly causing serious problems. To counter this, Ravenol has developed the USVO® lubricant technology to provide a very high viscosity stability at both high and low temperatures. To achieve this only the highest quality fully synthetic base oils and additives are used. USVO® stands for Ultra Strong Viscosity Oil.


• EXCELLENT HIGH TEMPERATURE VISCOSITY (HTHS AT 150 °C)Barely any viscosity loss during operation, which means that the lubricant film is permanently maintained during operation.
• EXCELLENT PERFORMANCE AT LOW TEMPERATURES (CCS AT -30 °C)The lubricant is always flows freely so that direct engine lubrication is guaranteed even for cold starts.
• VERY GOOD OXIDATION STABILITYOxidation stable lubricants have increased resistance against reacting with oxygen and temperatures. This increases the lubricant service life, which permanently prevents deposits (sludge) and maintains the lubrication properties.
• VERY LOW LOSSES DUE TO EVAPORATIONOnly a few components of the oil evaporate at the high operating temperatures. As a result, the engine oil level drops only slightly and the environment is not additionally polluted by the gases.
• HIGH VISCOSITY INDEXA high viscosity index illustrates a reduced temperature-dependent viscosity change compared to a low viscosity index.
• VERY LOW POUR POINTThe pour point is the lowest temperature above which an oil is liquid. As a result, lubrication is guaranteed, even at the lowest temperatures. Even if we never get temperatures this low in the UK, the lower the pour point, the better the quality of the lubricant.

Properties of the RAVENOL-USVO® qualities

Thanks to their technical properties, RAVENOL USVO® lubricants optimise engine performance and noticeably reduce fuel consumption at the same time. This benefits the environment, as lower fuel consumption leads to reduced CO2 emissions.

CCS = Low temperature viscosity

PP = Temperature of loss of fluidity

MRV = Low temperature viscosity when pumping through

SSI = Mechanical shear strength

Very good oil , I’ve been using Petronas before and you can see the difference with Ravenol.The only difference I’ve noticed that in the winter when you start the engine with the Petronas oil the engine was warming faster than Ravenol.

Hi Alin, thank you for your review. We're glad to hear that you've seen the difference with Ravenol. To clarify your point on the engine warming faster, PAO based lubricants have better heat transfer properties and create less friction compared to HC formulations. Thus less heat is produced and the heat is distributed more quickly to the cooler.
Both facts should let the temperature rise more slowly and help to keep engine temperatures a bit cooler than with conventional lubricants. Keep in mind, lower oil temperature means less oil aging because oxidation rate will increase with temperature.

Only Brand To Use

Since using in our rally car, Ravenol is now the only brand we use in ALL our cars. We are using USVO VMP 5W-30 in our Octavia VRS, with full OEM Manufacturer approval 504.00 and 507.00. This oil has reduced oil consumption considerably! All at a very competitive price. Thank you Ravenol!

Best oil.

Best oil, Ravenol is the only brand where you can read real info about their product on the can, not like others says 100% synthetic, but the reality is totally different.

When its "Made in Germany" it has to do what it says on the can, unlike some of our UK competitors who do seem on occasion appear to use a certain amount of poetic licence.
