Chevron Products Company, a Chevron U.S.A. Inc. division, maker of the Delo® brand of technologically advanced engine oils, lubricants and coolants, today announced its latest product, Delo 400 XLE Synblend SAE 10W-30, which can deliver over three percent fuel economy improvement in class 6 trucks relative to SAE 15W-40 diesel motor oils. The product is formulated for use in modern on-highway, low emissions engines as well as older diesel engines. It will also provide exceptional performance in modern off-highway engines where an SAE 10W-30 viscosity grade is recommended, including those adapted for future emissions standards in construction, agriculture, marine and mining applications.
Delo 400 XLE Synblend SAE 10W-30 is a premium synthetic blend fuel economy and mixed fleet motor oil recommended for naturally aspirated and turbocharged four-stroke diesel engines and four-stroke gasoline engines in which the API CJ-4 or SM service category and SAE 10W-30 viscosity grade are recommended. The product is formulated for 2010 compliant low emission diesel engines with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR), Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) and Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) and is also compatible with previous engine models and previous API oil service categories.
Fuel Economy Benefits
Delo 400 XLE Synblend SAE 10W-30 shows up to 3.6 percent fuel economy improvement in short-haul, class 6 vehicles and up to 1 percent improvement in long-haul, class 8 trucks compared to SAE 15W-40 oil in SAE J1321 Fuel Consumption Tests. For fleets, the savings associated with these fuel economy improvements can be substantial.
Delo 400 XLE Synblend SAE 10W-30 joins Delo® 400 LE Synthetic SAE 5W-40, Delo® 400 LE Synthetic SAE 5W-30 and Delo® 400 NG SAE 15W-40 to expand Chevron’s line of heavy-duty motor oils focused on delivering fuel economy without sacrificing engine durability.
