Scania oil

If your engine could choose

Interacting with every moving part of the engine, oil is a critical component - playing a vital role in the environmental impact, performance and economy of your Scania engine. And as modern, high-tech engines increasingly feature innovative materials and more-exacting tolerances, the need for a tailored, optimized oil blend for each engine family becomes more important than ever. That’s why for more than 20 years, Scania has developed, field tested, engineered and specified oil blends for each of its engine families. 

Less fuel

Using Scania approved oil versus general market oils results in improved fuel economy and therefore reduced fuel costs – better for your economy and the environment.

More uptime

Depending on the vehicle application and usage, service intervals can be significantly extended, giving you more time on the road.

Environmental benefits

A sustainable win-win; improved fuel economy, and fewer oil changes reduce your environmental impact.

Peace of mind

Protect your investment in a premium engine with a premium oil. You can rely on Scania Oils; they are developed, tested and proven for service intervals up to 155,000 km. There is no better protection for your Scania engine than Scania Oil.

We engineer the oil - as we would any other component

Scania Oil is engineered to deliver the best possible performance, economy and protection for your engine. But what is the science behind producing an oil that matches the exact requirements of your engine? Scania’s Mattias Berger, Senior Technical Manager explains how oil blends differ and what makes Scania Oil the best choice for a Scania Engine.


All Scania Oil is engineered to deliver maximum performance in terms of protection, fuel economy and environmental impact. And our latest generation LDF-4 oil takes that performance to a new level – significantly reducing fuel consumption over LDF-3 10W-40, and doubling the change interval for the particulate filter.

Did you know

  • Scania rigorously field tests all oil blends on Scania engines – the only manufacturer to do so.

  • Scania Oil composition is unique – each blend is designed for each engine family.

  • Scania Oil minimizes aftertreatment impact, oil and fuel consumption.

  • Scania Oil specifications build on The European Automobile Manufacturers Association (ACEA, ACEA E9 specifications for highly rated diesel engines meeting Euro 1 through 6 emission requirements.

  • Suitable for engines with or without particulate filters, and for most engines fitted with SCR NOx reduction systems.

  • LDF stands for Long Drain Field Test which means that we test the oils and engines for 155,000 km in long haulage instead of 60,000 km, before draining it and examining the engine parts.

  • Scania LDF-4 roughly doubles the change interval on the DPF (exhaust particulate filer).


  • Increased oil consumption.

  • Increased tappet and roller wear.

  • Increased likelihood of oil acidification leading to soft metal corrosion and piston deposits.

  • Increased engine sludge with potential to block filters and even oilways.

  • Reduced lubrication in cold starts, increasing wear.

  • Increased fuel consumption caused by wrong viscosity.
