Chevron Introduces New Products and Tools to Help Customers Improve Fuel EconomyDelo® 400 XLE Synblend SAE 10W-30 Targets Fuel Economy
Chevron Products Company, a Chevron U.S.A. Inc. division, maker of the Delo® brand of technologically advanced engine oils, lubricants and coolants, 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.
Chevron says 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.
“We understand that fleets are under constant costs pressures. Any product that can help reduce fuel consumption is important for fleets to consider,” said Jim Gambill, North America Commercial and Industrial brand manager, Chevron Products Company. “Chevron is committed to expanding its line of Delo-branded, fuel economy focused lubricants in order to offer customers solutions that deliver real world cost savings. With the introduction of Delo 400 XLE Synblend SAE 10W-30, our customers have more lubricant options, allowing them to select the product that best meets their needs.”
Chevron says the new Delo 400 XLE Synblend SAE 10W-30 is now available in drums across North America and will be available in bulk in April, 2013, and jugs will be available by June 2013.
