Petro-Can offers new low viscosity synthetic oil

MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Petro-Canada Lubricants Inc. has added a new heavy-duty oil to its product lineup.

Duron-E UHP 5W-30 is a fully synthetic, low viscosity oil that the company has positioned as offering “ultra high performance.” In comparison testing using the SAE J1321 Type II fuel-consumption test, Petro-Canada has found the 5W-30 offers 4% better fuel economy than its Duron-E 15W-40.

According to Petro-Can, the oil has been approved for use by most major OEMs, including Cummins, Detroit Diesel, Volvo, and Mack. It meets performance requirements of ACEA European Service Categories E6, E7 and E9, as well as the API Service Categories CJ-4/SN.

“Fuel savings can be achieved in a low viscosity engine oil such as a 5W-30; however, we know that reliability and uptime remain critical in keeping fleets moving,” says Barnaby Ngai, category portfolio manager, transportation oils, Petro-Canada Lubricants.

“The introduction of Duron-E UHP 5W-30 is an example of Petro-Canada Lubricants’ dedication to providing fleets with solutions that not only save money, but maximize the uptime and reliability of their operations where no compromise can be made.”
