Petro-Canada Lubricants has launched a new Duron oil that it said provides twice the engine protection and 4% better fuel economy than a Duron-E 15W-40 oil. The new Duron-E UHP 5W-30 is an ultra-high performance full synthetic low viscosity heavy duty diesel engine oil (HDEO).
The fuel economy performance is supported by the recognized SAE J1321 Type II Fuel Consumption Test, the company said.
“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,” said 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.”
The oil carries approvals from major global OEMs such as MTU, MAN, Cummins, Detroit Diesel, Volvo, Mack and many others. It also meets performance requirements of ACEA European Service Categories E6, E7 and E9, as well as the API Service Categories CJ-4/SN.
The oil is made up 99.9% pure base oils, helping it maintain its fresh oil properties longer and playing an important role in preventing oxidative thickening and viscosity breakdown, Petro-Canada said.
