The picture shows a Fw190A with the air cooled BMW 801 radial engine, and it is the early one.

The Junkers Jumo wasn't a radial engine, and the Jumo 213 version was an inline liquid cooled inverted V12 engine that was used in the long nosed, high performance Fw190D version that entered, limited, Luftwaffe service in late 1944.

With the inverted The Daimler-Benz fitted to the Messerschmitt 109 in very cold weather
they would add fuel to the oil on landing to keep it thin so making it easier
to turn over, this saves them warming the engines at intervals and would
evaporate away as the engine warmed up ready for takeoff.
The Messerschmitts used in the film Battle of Britain were in fact Hispano HA-112 MIL (Buchon
the give away is that they were fitted with RR Merlins so the exhausts exit along to top of the
cowle not the bottom as in the Daimler-Benz fitted aircraft.

Correction to my earlier post.
Sorry schoolboy error or post retirement dementia comments on the FW engines
Early production had the BMW radial later had the Jumo Inline
Shows that someone is on the ball, thanks for pointing that out
