Default Millers Motorsport Oils - new range at Opies

We expect the majority of you have heard of Millers Nanodrive Oils by now - They were a real game changer when they were first introduced to the world of motorsports, providing a dedicated range of oils that were designed to increase power by reducing friction, all thanks to their nifty "Nanodrive Additive Package"
Well, the tech guys at Millers Oils have done it again. They're improved on what was considered the peak of performance oils by ushering in a new and improved range for their motorsport category, and Opie Oils are pleased to announce that they are on the shelf and ready to go - just in time for the race season!



Millers are driven by their obsession to produce highly innovative products which offer outstanding friction reducing properties. This is at the core of everything that they do. Due to an intense development programme, their new and improved range of next generation competition racing oils now incorporates their award winning NANODRIVE ultra low friction technology across the board.

CSS (Competition Semi-Synthetic) and CFS (Competition Fully Synthetic)
First off, we have the CSS and CFS range. Millers have significantly improved the capabilities of the already established CSS and CFS oils by incorporating a high performance, triple ester formulation, and then adding a measured amount of their unique NANODRIVE additive package. It's the addition of this little beauty that can effortlessly deliver up to 15% lower levels of friction than their predecessors.
The entire CFS range is all fully synthetic and has benefitted massively by this addition of the NANODRIVE additive package, offering a further 26% reduction in friction than their predecessors. Simply put, you can expect significantly improved levels of performance on track and road, delivering great value and performance levels in an affordable package - these are designed to increase the performance of an engine in respect of improved HP and increased torque.
You can find them all below:

CSS (Competition Semi Synthetic) Range
- Millers Oils CSS 10w-40
- Millers Oils CSS 20w-60

CFS (Competition Fully Synthetic) Range
- Millers Oils CFS 5w-40
- Millers Oils CFS 10w-40
- Millers Oils CFS 10w-50
- Millers Oils CFS 10w-60
- Millers Oils CFS 15w-60

There's also a couple of oils in this range that have been blended for specific applications:
- Millers Oils CTV Mini 20w-50: Specially formulated for competition Minis and any application where the engine and gearbox share a common oil
- Millers Oils COR 20w-50: Exclusively formulated for short circuit racing and particularly suited to older classic sport applications
- Millers Oils KR2T: A bespoke CIK-FIA approved formulation for rotor and all high revving 2-stroke kart and bike engines

CFS NT+ (Competition Fully Synthetic)
Up next, we have Millers new flagship NANODRIVE NT+ Oils. They have completely redefined their criteria usually associated with a performance lubricant to bring an absolute top of the range product to those in the absolute top tiers and demands of motorsport.
This range features their new and improved NANODRIVE NT+ ultra low friction package. If you thought their previous range of Nanodrive oils were great, and they couldn't possibly improve on them, this NT+ package is proven to reduce engine friction by a further 15% over and above this previous multi-award winning products - this sets the NT+ range apart from all others in this arena, providing immediately noticeable increased levels of power and torque as well as increased efficiency in your engine's performance.
Have a look below for all the viscosities that are in this range:

- Millers Oils CFS 0w-20 NT+
- Millers Oils CFS 0w-30 NT+
- Millers Oils CFS 5w-40 NT+
- Millers Oils CFS 10w-50 NT+
- Millers Oils CFS 10w-60 NT+


NEXT UP - TRANSMISSION OILS AND SUSPENSION FLUID!
Millers engine oils weren't the only ones to benefit from this liberal application of the magic NANODRIVE package. Their gear oils and transmission oils have all been subject to this update. Their competition grade transmission oils have been formulated using a unique combo of improved chemistry and NANODRIVE additives to massively reduce friction against a standard oil. For use in manual transmissions, synchromesh, non-synchromesh, sequential gearboxes, transfer gearboxes, transaxles and hypoid differentials, there's a full range to choose from:

- CRX 75w-90 NT+ - CRX 75w-110 NT+ - crx 75W-140 NT+ -

For vehicles with limited slip, have a look HERE.

Millers have also had their first foray into adding their NANODRIVE NT+ technology into a broad range of suspension fluids. Thoroughly tested and offering excellent bump and rebound characteristics, proven to significantly contribute to an extremely smooth suspension operation. Ideal for those days on track!
Available in a viscosity for every situation:

- Millers Oils Suspension 2.5 NT+
- Millers Oils Suspension 5 NT+
- Millers Oils Suspension 7.5 NT+
- Millers Oils Suspension 10 NT+
- Millers Oils Suspension 15 NT+

All in all, Millers have really put some work into their newest offerings for the world of motorsport, giving you peace of mind that you've got the best possible product in your vehicle, regardless of its level of modification or the type of use it is getting.

You can view all of Millers products HERE, including their rebranded brake fluids, fuel treatments, competition running in oil and even their updated range of Motorbike Oils.

For the E92 M3 S65 engine, would you say Millers CFS NT+ is better than Castrol Motorsport 10/60?

The Castrol is a good oil, but the CFS NT+ is one of the very best on the market.

Cheers

Cheers Tim.

My M3 will need an oil service in the spring, plus brake fluid change. I'll be buying the Millers CFS NT+ engine oil, Mahle filter and Millers Racing 300 brake fluid from you then.

Just purchased 6L of Millers Oils NANODRIVE CFS 10w-60 NT, looks very good and should help the S54 sing.

Hi
Does he nanodrive have the same cold start properties as the Cfs?

Is it safe to assume the NT is just a better mix than Cfs if using on a track car with all the benefits and some?

Hi,

Not sure what you mean by the same cold start properties?

The CFS NT is almost the same as the normal CFS just with added friction reducing NT additive.

Cheers,

Guy

Thanks

When I compared the two Cfs lists some benefits which aren't shown on the NT+ so was wondering if they were totally different.

I want to start using it on my track car

Hi Tim, could you please take a look at this thread on the main E46 forum here and provide your thoughts on the problems people have raised with NT+? I'll be looking to return mine to Opie and exchange for Fuchs Pro S.

Hi

I've just had a look at that thread and it is something I was completely unaware of. I have asked Millers for their input.

Here is a link to the returns procedure.

I done the same!! I emailed millers about my concerns and mentioned people saying they have had problem and could they shed some light/give their opinions, their reply could have been written by somebody from the House of Commons but what stuck out for me was there was NO denial of people having problems, thatís what 100% made my mind up!

I still stand by the CFS (not the NT stuff) I've used it for years and it's been fantastic

I run 10w60 in the Exige also and when using mobil 1, Castrol etc it always burnt a pint of oil at least on a trackdays but since being recommended millers by my specialist I don't loose a drop

I have it in the M3 at the moment as well with no issues so far, I've only done about 5k and don't do any trackdays

Default Cam shaft wear

Had an response from millers about the reports of cam shaft wear using there 10/60 Nt+ oil.

Thank you for your enquiry.

We have spoken to a couple of people regarding the cam wear issue - it's a common problem on the M3's for the cams to wear and it's a major issue with nearly all M cars. The problem is more to do with engine design and is nothing to do with the oil regardless of brand - and by changing the oil wouldn't fix the problem if your engine had worn cams. The best thing we would recommend to do is the check the condition of the oil i.e. the wear metals in the oil to get an idea of what is going on. We offer a sampling service and you can purchase through our website.

Our CFS oil are very good for these engines and you don't need to change it.

Kind regards,
Mark
