EcoPower Receives dexos1™ Engine Oil Specification
Safety-Kleen’s EcoPower has become the first re-refined engine oil to meet the GM dexos1™ specification. dexos™ is a global engine oil specification designed by GM Powertrain engineers to increase fuel efficiency, extend the life of emissions systems and produce fewer emissions in GM vehicles.
“Meeting GM’s standards for dexos1™ is yet another proof point that illustrates the extremely high quality of EcoPower engine oil,” said Curt Knapp, senior vice president and chief marketing officer of Safety-Kleen. “EcoPower also provides cost efficiencies, as it meets the dexos1™ requirements while being made mostly of Group II base oil, instead of more costly Group III base stock.”
General Motors developed the dexos™ oil certification as part of its commitment to designing and building cars that perform well and last a long time. A critical component of performance, longevity and environmental sensitivity is the quality of the oil that goes into the car. dexos1™ licensed engine oil provides the following benefits to GM vehicles: improved viscometric properties, creating less friction in the engine which contributes to improved fuel economy; resists aeration, enabling fuel-saving devices such as Variable Valve Timing to work optimally; improved oxidation and deposit-forming tendencies that allow emission systems to operate longer and optimally; and resists degradation between oil changes, extending the time and mileage interval between oil changes.
