CALGARY, Alta. — Imperial Oil has announced it will be introducing a reformulated version of its Mobil Delvac 1300 Super 15W-40 oil which meets CJ-4 specifications in October.
The company says the reformulated heavy-duty engine oil will help extend the life of new and older engines as well as the diesel particulate filters which will be a part of the emissions-reducing package on 2007 trucks.
Imperial Oil says the new oil will exceed category requirements for soot control, wear protection, oil consumption and deposit control. It will also be backwards compatible so it can be used on pre-’07 engines, the company confirmed.
“With new US Environmental Protection Agency emission regulations for heavy-duty vehicles taking effect in 2007, diesel engine oil performance requirements will become more stringent,” said Colin Cochran, line of business advisor, Imperial Oil Lubricants and Specialties. “As it has for more than 80 years, Mobil Delvac continues to set new standards for advanced lubricant technology and performance in the North American marketplace.”
Cochran said the new Mobil Delvac 1300 HDEO has performed exceptionally well in field testing.
“Our fleet and owner/operators customers will have the peace of mind that they will be able to at least maintain current drain intervals for older engines using diesel fuel with either 15 PPM or 500 PPM sulfur content,” he insisted.
