Chevron Products Co has launched its new CJ-4 engine oil and will offer both a CJ-4 and a CI-4 Plus version of its Delo and Ursa branded oils.

The Delo CJ-4 product, to be known as Delo 400 LE (low-emissions) Multigrade SAE 15W-40, will be offered along with the CI-4 Plus specification oil, Delo 400 Multigrade SAE 15W-40. The new Texaco Ursa CJ-4 product will be known as Texaco Ursa LA (low-ash) SAE 15W-40. The company expects to have both CJ-4 products available Oct 26, 2006, the API's intended first license date for the new engine oil specification.

Nicole Fujishige, commercial marketing manager, North America, Chevron Products Co, said, “In this situation, there is clearly a need to retain the CI-4 Plus oil, while introducing the CJ-4 product. Although backwards-compatible, CJ-4 will likely be more expensive than CI-4 Plus and is not required for the off-road market or pre-2007 engines. Based on fleet composition, the majority of Chevron's customers will have a greater need for CI-4 Plus, so we'll keep that product on the market until conditions change.”
