Petro-Canada Lubricants’ Duron next generation oils are formulated to meet American Petroleum Institute CK-4 and FA-4 specifications, officially launching December 2016. The company calls Duron its most durable, high performance heavy-duty diesel engine oils, and will offer the line in four performance tiers: HP (High Performance), SHP (Super High Performance), UHP (Ultra High Performance) and Advanced. The former three will meet API CK-4, the successor to CJ-4 oils and suiting most on- and off-road engines, while Duron Advanced stands as Petro-Canada’s fully API FA-4 product, formulated to maximize fuel economy in primarily long haul trucking.
|Petro-Canada bills the Duron Performance and Advanced series oils as leading “the industry towards the right solution to consistently deliver durability, improved fuel economy and extended drain intervals.”|
Duron has been engineered to exceed advanced OEM engine performance requirements for ultimate protection and fuel efficiency, Petro-Canada reports, and is “formulated using leading-edge lubricant technology to combine the best additives with the purest base oils.”
“We had a clear vision to create the world’s toughest heavy-duty diesel engine oils and with Duron have delivered,” contends Howard McIntyre, vice president, Lubricants for Petro-Canada parent Suncor. “The product line has been built on world class technology and with an approach that doesn’t compromise durability, strength and efficiency.” — Petro Canada Lubricants, Mississauga, Ontario; www.duronthetougherthebetter.com
