ACEA 2021

The year 2021 marks the 25th anniversary of ACEA’s (European Automobile Manufacturers' Association) European Oil Sequences and the anticipated 11th revision to the European heavy-duty diesel sequences. Starting in 1996, ACEA E1 through to E3 were released to define the minimum quality of service-fill engine lubricants for use in member’s vehicles. Fast forward to today, and amongst its members; 15 major Europe-based car, van, truck and bus makers, ACEA is responsible for positive and significant development in the performance of service-fill engine lubricants.

The anticipated 2021 revisions to the ACEA sequences will occur during a period of significant change in the commercial vehicle industry with pressures of decreased emissions, increased efficiency, advances in hardware as well as the adoption of alternative fuels.
