LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Mobil’s CI-4 Delvac 1300 Super 15W-40 engine oil features new technology to deliver unprecedented oil performance in heavy-duty trucks, according one of the company’s top techies.

Michael Ragomo, product advisor for ExxonMobil’s commercial vehicle lubricants presented the latest company findings at a press conference at the Mid-America Trucking Show. He stressed the Delvac 1300 Super 15W-40 oil uses patented Trimer technology to make it one of the most advanced heavy-duty engine oils available today.

The oil is designed to help customers stay ahead of the looming American Petroleum Institute (API) CI-4 requirements for newly developed exhaust gas recirculation (EGR)-equipped engines.

“No one has logged more miles of testing EGR-equipped engines than Mobil,” says Ragomo. “We deliberately chose the highest test hurdles with EGR and conventional engines at our world renowned Paulsboro Technical Center to arrive at a CI-4 ready engine oil formulation to provide the best protection for our customer’ engines, whether they are EGR or non-EGR.”

The company has also reformulated its Exxon XD-3 EXTRA heavy-duty engine oil to surpass the API CI-4 specifications. The XD-3 EXTRA brand is designed to provide excellent soot handling capabilities, and is ideal for tough trucking conditions.

“The CI-4 ready Exxon XD-3 EXTRA provides outstanding performance and engine protection in conventional engines and in new EGR equipped engines that run hotter, creating higher soot and acid levels than in previous engine designs,” says Ragomo.
