Chevron Demonstrates Advanced Protection Of Delo 400 XLE 10W-30 At 2014 Mid-America Trucking Show

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 plans to conduct a live teardown of a DD15 engine, with over 400,000 miles of service using Delo® 400 XLE 10W-30, during the Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS) in Louisville, KY March 27-29 (booth# 32495, South Wing). The event is designed to demonstrate the ability of lower-viscosity oils, like 10W-30, to provide comparable protection to a 15W-40 grade, while at the same time improving fuel economy.

“There’s a misconception that lighter viscosity oils don’t offer the same level of protection as heavier oils,” said Jim Gambill, North America Commercial and Industrial Brands Manager, Chevron Products Company. “We’re here to dispel that myth. Besides the teardown, we’ll challenge attendees to compare parts from engines that have used 10W-30 and 15W-40 in similar environments and for similar lengths of service and ask if they can see the difference. Once they realize they can rely on Delo 400 XLE 10W-30 to maintain engine durability while improving fuel economy, we feel they will be comfortable making the switch.”

Updated Delo Truck

Chevron will also debut the newly updated Delo Truck, an 80-foot rolling education center that serves as a mobile ambassador for the Delo brand. The Delo Truck features all-new graphics, a new interactive proof of performance display, an updated DD15 engine cutaway display and an area dedicated to Tier IV emissions. The Delo Truck is designed to educate customers on key market issues, Delo technology and the importance of premium performance heavy-duty engine oils, lubricants and coolants.

Edgar Hansen of “Deadliest Catch”

In addition, Chevron will also have Edgar Hansen, Chief Engineer of the fishing vessel Northwestern in its booth Thursday through Saturday. Edgar, whose business uses Delo lubricants and is featured on Discovery Channel’s “Deadliest Catch,” will take photos, sign autographs and answer questions.

Fans of Edgar that can’t attend MATS are encouraged to visit Chevron Delo on Facebook or Twitter and submit their questions using the hashtag #AskEdgar. During the show, select questions will be answered by Edgar and posted online.

While at MATS, attendees will also have an opportunity to have their picture taken with the Delo Parts Guy and take home Delo-branded gear.
