Chevron Delo 600 ADF oils approved in Cummins natural-gas engines

by Today's Trucking

Chevron’s Delo 600 ADF 10W-30 and 15W-40 heavy-duty engine oils are now approved for use in Cummins natural gas engines.

The approval follows two years of field testing, followed by a teardown and review by the engine maker.

“As the leading manufacturer of natural gas engines in North America, Cummins sets the industry standard for mobile natural gas engine oils. We’re excited that we can now offer fleet operators a single oil for both diesel and natural gas-powered vehicles,” said Shawn Whitacre, Chevron’s senior staff engineer.

Delo 600 ADF 10W-30 and 15W-40 oils were introduced in 2019 with Omnimax, an ultra-low-ash technology.

“Shortly after launching Delo 600 ADF, we saw that these products naturally align with Cummins CES 20092 specification for mobile natural gas engine oils,” said Whitacre. “Having a single oil for both diesel and natural gas-powered vehicles should make life much easier for fleet operators. With the upcoming launch of a CNG powered 15L engine, we are already hearing from longhaul operators looking for a one-oil solution for their mixed fleet.”
