RAVENOL Break-In Oil SAE 30

Category Other engine oil

Item number 1114105

Viscosity 30

Specification SAE 30

Oil type Mineral

RAVENOL Break-In Oil SAE 30 is mineral break-in oil for start-up filling and the breaking-in of repaired or overhauled engines.

RAVENOL Break-In Oil SAE 30 dispenses with the use of friction coefficient improving additives (friction modifier) to considerably shorten the break-in phase for rebuilt and modified engines. The piston rings are rapidly seated.

Due to its high content of 2.5% ZDDP (zinc dithiophosphate) (equivalent to approx. 2,500 ppm zinc), RAVENOL Break-In Oil SAE 30 is especially recommended for driving classic V8 engines with flat tappets.

Application Note

RAVENOL Break-In Oil SAE 30 serves as a classic break-in oil and therefore can only remain in the engine for a short time (max. 1000km). The particularly high levels of anti-wear additives offer extra protection during the critical break-in phase of rebuilt engines. Please pay attention to the specifications of your engine reconditioners during the break-in phase. High engine loads and speeds are to be avoided.


  • Very high levels of ZDDP
  • No friction modifier
  • Breaks the engine in as quickly as possible
