TORONTO, Ont. — Petro-Canada’s Duron and Duron XL Synthetic Blend heavy-duty engine oils meet Caterpillar’s new ECF-1 specifications.

The Engine Crankcase Fluid (ECF) 1 specification, which went into effect June 1, was created to help Caterpillar engines meet 2002 emissions regulations.
ECF-1 defines an engine oil that provides soot control, acid neutralization capability, maximum thermal stability and wear control while minimizing diesel engine piston deposits.

Duron and Duron XL Synthetic Blend are formulated using the patented purity process Petro-Canada uses to produce 99.9 per cent pure, crystal-clear base oils. Petro-Canada also blends in additives for even longer fluid life and greater equipment protection from abrasive soot particles.
Both engine oils are designed for use in a wide variety of heavy-duty engines. In addition to Mack EO-N Premium Plus, API CI-4 and CAT ECF-1, Duron XL Synthetic Blend’s credentials include Global DHD-1, JASO DH-1, ACEA E5 E3, VDS-2 (VDS-3 in progress), MB228.3, Cummins 20078, MTU MTL 5044 Type II, DDC/MTU 2000/4000 Type II, CAT TO-2, Allison C-4 and JASO-MA.

Duron heavy-duty engine oils are covered by Petro-Canada’s comprehensive “No Nonsense Lubricants Warranty.” Technical and after sales service are available, including oil analysis and disposal, bulk storage and dispensing and product training.
