Imperial Oil introduces new synthetic heavy-duty engine oil

Truck News

CALGARY, Alta. — Imperial Oil has introduced a new Mobil Delvac 1 ESP SAE 0W-40 heavy-duty synthetic motor oil which it says will offer added engine protection, particularly in cold weather.


The company says the oil has proven in testing to reach even the furthest parts of the inside of an engine within the first minute of start-up, even at temperatures as cold as -43 C. Conventional oils thicken in the cold and allow metal-on-metal wear and tear during cold starts, the company claims, whereas its new synthetic moves into action as soon as the ignition is turned.


“Mobil Delvac 1 ESP SAE 0W-40 is one of Imperial Oil’s most important achievements in the company’s long history of protecting heavy-duty engines,” said Jeff Diederichs, Imperial Oil’s marketing manager, lubricants and specialties. “It provides the optimum combination of productivity and protection, year-round. With the introduction of Mobil Delvac 1 ESP SAE 0W-40, Imperial has a complete, bumper-to-bumper Mobil Delvac offer – from our heavy-duty engine oils to our superior drivetrain oils.”


Imperial Oil says its newest product also delivers and maintains a strong, stable film of protection under heavy load and in high-temperature operations. It’s also more resistant to the formation of sludge and deposits as well as viscosity breakdown than conventional motor oils.


Customers using the new synthetic oil can also extend drain intervals and reduce maintenance costs, Imperial Oil says. The new oil is available through Imperial Oil’s national network of branded distributors. More info is available by calling 800-268-3183 or visiting
