2007 Volvo V70
Depending on your driving habits, premium or synthetic oils may provide superior fuel economy and
engine protection. Consult your Volvo retailer for recommendations on premium or synthetic oils.
Oil additives must not be used.
NOTE: Synthetic oil is not used when the oil is changed at the normal maintenance services. This oil is
only used at customer request, at additional charge. Please consult your Volvo retailer.
Oil viscosity (stable ambient temperatures)
Operation in hot climates
When temperatures exceed 86° F (30° C) in your area, Volvo recommends, for the protection of your
engine, that you use a heavier weight oil, such as such as SAE 5W- 40 or 0W-40. See the viscosity chart.
Operation in temperate climates
Incorrect viscosity oil can shorten engine life. Under normal use when temperatures do not exceed 86° F
(30° C), SAE 5W-30 will provide good fuel economy and engine protection. See the viscosity chart.
Extreme engine operation
Synthetic oils meeting SAE 0W-30 or 0W-40 and complying with oil quality requirements are
recommended for driving in areas of sustained temperature extremes (hot or cold), when towing a trailer
over long distances, and for prolonged driving in mountainous areas.
