Oil W80 PLUS Single Grade Oil
Aeroshell® Oil W80 Plus is a new single grade oil that combines the single grade, ashless dispersant performance, as well as the anti-wear/ anti-corrosion additives, found in Aeroshell® Oil W100 Plus with a lighter weight oil for colder climates. It’s the oil for pilots who prefer a single grade but who also want the extra protection and performance that additives can bring.
Aeroshell® Oil W80 Plus Highlights:
Blended from selected high viscosity mineral base oils
Contains AeroShell’s proven W Oils additive package
Additional anti-wear additives (containing an additive equivalent to Lycoming additive LW 16702)
Additional anti-corrosion additives
Fully compatible with other approved aircraft piston engine oils
Equipment Manufactures Approvals The use of Aeroshell® Oil W80 Plus complies with the following requirements:
Service Instruction 1014

Aeroshell® Oil W80 Plus already contains, in the correct proportions, an anti-wear additive equivalent to the Lycoming additive LW 16702; thus it already complies with FAA Airworthiness Directive 80-04-03.
Operators who use Aeroshell® Oil W80 Plus DO NOT need to add this Lycoming additive to the oil.
Aeroshell® Oil W80 Plus is qualified for use in all Textron Lycoming and Teledyne Continental Motors liquid-cooled and aircooled aircraft piston engines.
The advanced additives in Aeroshell® Oil W80 Plus provide better rust and wear protection than conventional single grades. The additives work as a protective barrier to prevent critical parts from being slowly degraded by rust or wear, especially when an aircraft is used infrequently. This protection helps keep the camshaft and lifters protected, especially during engine start, reducing the likelihood of premature damage and helping engines reach TBO.
