Semi Synthetic 5W-40 is a premium quality, semi synthetic, SAE 5W-40 engine oil for use in a wide range of modern motor vehicles. It is formulated using high performance base oils with advanced engine oil additive technology including a FULL ZINC anti-wear package for complete engine protection.

Semi Synthetic 5W-40 meets API SN/CF and ACEA A3/B4 as well as many other manufacturer specifications.


Semi Synthetic 5W-40 is designed for use in modern 4, 6 & 8+ cylinder, multi-cam, multi-valve (including VVT), naturally aspirated, supercharged & turbocharged engines. It is not recommended for Rotary engines.

Semi Synthetic 5W-40 is designed for modern petrol and light duty diesel engines where the use of SAE 5W-30, SAE 10W-30 or SAE 5W-40 grade oils are specified in the owner's handbook. It can be used where API SN is required and where previous API specifications SM (2004-2010), SL (2001-2004) or SJ (1996-2001) were recommended. It can also be used where ILSAC GF-3 / GF-4 / GF-5 grade oils were specified by the manufacturer.

Semi Synthetic 5W-40 is suitable for use in LPG and light duty diesel engines where API CF, ACEA A3/B3 or ACEA A3/B4 is recommended and can be used where ACEA A1/B1 (obsolete) and ACEA A5/B5 fuel economy and long service life specifications are requested by the manufacturer. It is NOT suitable for use in diesels fitted with a DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) that require an ACEA “C” grade Low-SAPS (Sulphated Ash, Phosphorus & Sulphur) engine oil.


Semi Synthetic 5W-40 is suitable for use in passenger car, 4WDs & light commercial vehicles. It is NOT recommended for use in four stroke motorcycles with wet clutches. It is compatible with Petrol/LPG (Dual Fuel), E10, Diesel (without DPF) and most other conventional fuels. If using with E85 fuel, Penrite recommend more frequent oil change periods.

NOTE: when changing oil, Penrite recommend using Penrite Engine Flush, a fast acting, solvent free, engine cleaning formulation that removes engine deposits, sludge and contaminants with the oil service drain. It contains added zinc for engine wear protection and its fast acting formulation works in 10 minutes.
