Chevron passes API CJ-4 tests

Chevron Products Co. today announced its diesel engine oils, including Delo, Ursa and RPM, have passed all American Petroleum Institute (API) and OEM tests required to meet the new API CJ-4 diesel engine oil service category. The company's new API CJ-4 oils offer improved performance for existing and 2007 engines operating on ultra low sulfur diesel (ULSD), Chevron said.

According to Jim McGeehan, global manager of diesel engine oil technology for Chevron Global Lubricants, these new oils are set to launch Oct. 15, 2006.

“API CJ-4 is the most robust API oil category ever developed for diesel engine,” McGeehan said. “The new category includes nine fired engine tests and six bench tests. Chevron and Texaco products provided excellent performance in all these tests thanks to our advanced additive technology and Group II base stock. With CJ-4 testing behind us, our attention is now firmly fixed on PC-11 and the 2010 emissions regulations.”

The company is now preparing for future emissions regulations by testing aftertreatment systems designed for use in 2010 with a global engine manufacturer, Chevron noted.

Chevron’s new CJ-4 products, to be known as Delo 400 LE (Low Emissions) Multigrade SAE 15W-40, Texaco Ursa LA (Low Ash) SAE 15W-40 and Chevron RPM LA (Low Ash) SAE 15W-40, have completed and exceeded all the requirements for:

  • API CJ-4, CI-4 PLUS, CI-4, CH-4, CF, SM
  • Caterpillar ECF-3
  • DDC Power Guard 93K218
  • Cummins CES 20081
  • Mack EO-O Premium Plus 07
  • Volvo VDS-4
  • MB228.3

    Chevron said it will offer both an API CJ-4 and an API CI-4 Plus version of its diesel engine oils based on customer feedback and expected market demand.
