Universal Lubricants announced that its Eco Ultra Synthetic Blend motor oil has been awarded a dexos1 license for meeting the rigorous quality requirements for use in General Motors gasoline engines.
The first Eco Ultra Synthetic Blend dexos1 5W-30 motor oil went into production last week at the company’s state-of-the-art re-refinery and blending facility in Wichita, KS.
According to the company, the dexos1 specification was specially designed to meet the exacting requirements of GM’s advanced gasoline engine technology. Administered by The Center for Quality Assurance, the dexos licensing program requires that blenders like Universal Lubricants be facility accredited and undergo product testing prior to final licensing.
“The Center for Quality Assurance provided us with information and guidance throughout the licensing process and the result is a high performance Eco Ultra dexos1 formulation that provides significant wear protection, improved piston cleanliness, reduced volatility and oil consumption, enhanced aeration control for improved fuel efficiency and better oxidation properties. It also means environmentally responsible motorists now have a ‘green’ oil choice that meets all GM warranty requirements,” said Mike Wyant, Universal Lubricants’ manager of technical services.
Eco Ultra Synthetic Blend Motor Oil and the new dexos1 formulation are made from crystal clear, re-refined base oil that’s purified and then blended with high quality synthetic base oils and high performance additives. It also is licensed by the American Petroleum Institute and meets SAE requirements and other OEM specifications.
The company’s Universal Super XHD Synthetic dexos1 engine oil, licensed in 2011, also is custom formulated with premium additives that meet the demanding performance requirements and stringent quality standards of dexos1 specifications.
