Motul 300V Competition 5W-40 "specs"?

Sep 21, 2022
Me and some other guys that own tuned Honda Civic Type R (in Sweden) was talking about oils.
I got help here to choose the oil I needed (Mobil 1 ESP x3 0w-40) and i shared this with them.
Some of these guys use Motul V300 Competition 5W-40 and asked me why would Mobil1 be a better oil, what are the advantages over Motul?
I quickly realised that I can't answer because I can't find the "specs" of this Motul oil like ILSAC, API, ACEA, saps, HTHS ...well not in the time I have anyway.
So...can you help me with this? Thank you!

SAPS (Sulfated Ash, Phosphorous, Sulfur) level (SAPS: 0.91% weight and TBN: 8.1 mg KOH/g)

Viscosity grade SAE J 300 5W-40
Density at 20°C (68°F) ASTM D1298 0.850
Viscosity at 40°C (104°F) ASTM D445 78.7 mm²/s
Viscosity at 100°C (212°F) ASTM D445 13.5 mm²/s
HTHS viscosity at 150°C (302°F) ASTM D4741 4.0 mPa.s
Viscosity Index ASTM D2270 176.0 Pour point ASTM D97 -48.0 °C / -54.0 °F
Flash point ASTM D92 234.0 °C / 453.0 °F
Thank you!
So what do you think about it? Higher SAPS, good HTHS, I don't know about ASTM...
Looks like it should offer good protection but how is it for a daly driven (tuned) road car?
It's a racing oil, it doesn't have additives for long term use. I would think OCI of maybe 4-6 months and/or 4-5k km would be ok. Maybe more like 3 months/3k if running E85.
Two vastly different oils.

Mobil1 is better if doing strictly sttreet driving.
Motul 300V if you do a lot of track events. If you do track events once-twice a year, Mobil1 is better choice.
But if you are really into track or racing, 300V is probably one of the best, if not the best choice.
You may also consider something like Ravenol RCS 5W-40 or Meguin Super Leichtlauf 5W-40 ( rebottled Liqui Moly Synthoil ) , both very high performance PAO based oils, and these 2 are street oils that can be run for a full oci without a problem.

Sorry but ravenol rcs 5W40 is not a Street Engine oil. It is a Racing Engine oil without any specifications.
