Temperatures below -20°C are not uncommon in Austria, particularly in Western Austria. At the same time frosty temperatures represent optimal conditions for the OMV Premium Diesel: So it can proof its excellent properties best.
OMV MaxxMotion: the best diesel fuel for winter
According to Austrian law, from November 1 until the end of February only diesel fuel that ensures filterability in temperatures of up to -20°C (in compliance with the CFPP classification under the EN 950 standard) can be sold at Austrian filling stations. A premium diesel must be able to deliver far more than this, confirms Alois Wach, head of the OMV filling station business in Austria and Germany: “With MaxxMotion Premium Diesel, we want to provide a fuel that diesel drivers in Austria can rely on at any time of the year. We can even guarantee a resistance to cold down to -35°C.”
Full engine power even during frosty winter
Starting problems, a jerky engine and engine noise are familiar experiences for diesel drivers when temperatures fall below freezing. “Thanks to the excellent winter properties of MaxxMotion, the formula which is derived from our many years of experience, such issues are now firmly in the past for well-maintained vehicles,” says Wach. The result is impressive: high-performance additives, a higher cetane number and the HVO bio component make MaxxMotion a high-quality fuel that also cleans the engine and thereby reduces consumption and engine noise.
The premium elements
“MaxxMotion assures a quiet engine, better combustion, lower emissions, engine protection and consistently lower consumption – in other words, full engine power even during the winter,” explains Wach. “MaxxMotion bears comparison with other winter diesel products – it is the best Premium winter diesel on the Austrian market,” Wach is convinced.
