Citgo Lubricants has introduced Citgard 700 Synthetic Blend 10W-30 CJ-4/SM heavy-duty engine oil. The company said the “advanced synthetic blend “offers improved cold weather cranking performance, simplifies inventory by enhancing winter and summer performance, and exceeds requirements for both API CJ-4 and passenger car API SM credentials.

“With state-of-the-art wear control and patented Citgo SootArrest technology, Citgard700 Synthetic Blend 10W-30 offers protection for newer ERG engines that tend to have higher soot levels than even those operating in the most severe conditions,” said Mark Betner, product manager, Citgo Lubricants. “The synthetic blend is also well suited to protect against engine oil oxidation and fuel dilution, especially in fleets operating greater than 5% biodiesel fuel.”

According to Betner, when the new oil is combined with the Citgo LubeAlert HD Oil Analysis program, cost-saving benefits are offered “through preventative maintenance, warranty protection, greater unit resale value and optimized engine oil service intervals. Plus, it is an excellent alternative for urban or city transit fleets operating on compressed natural gas.”
