LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Chevron Products Company announced at the Mid-America Trucking Show that it will continue to offer its CI-4 Plus engine oil in 2007, even after the introduction of the upcoming CJ-4 specification.
Rather than convert entirely to CJ-4, Chevron will offer both a CJ-4 and a CI-4 Plus version of its Delo and Ursa branded oils due to expected market demand and customer feedback.
“Historically Chevron has fully embraced each new heavy-duty engine oil specifications,” said Nicole Fujishige, lubricants marketing manager, Chevron Products Company.
“In this situation, there was clearly a need to retain the CI-4 Plus oil, while introducing the CJ-4 product.”
Although backwards compatible, CJ-4 will likely be more expensive than CI-4 Plus and is not required in pre-2007 engines.
Based on fleet composition, the majority of Chevron’s customers will have a greater need for CI-4 Plus, so we’ll keep that product on the market until conditions change, Fujishige said.
The Delo CJ-4 product, to be known as Delo 400 LE (Low Emissions) Multigrade SAE 15W-40, will be offered alongside the CI-4 Plus specification oil, Delo 400 Multigrade SAE 15W-40.
The new Texaco Ursa CJ-4 product will be known as Texaco Ursa LA (Low Ash) SAE 15W-40.
