ConocoPhillips Upgrades 76 Super Diesel Synthetic Blend to CJ-4 Quality
June 01, 2007
ConocoPhillips Co. has announced that 76 Super Diesel synthetic blend motor oil has been upgraded to API CJ-4 quality. 76 Super Diesel is specially developed for use in diesel engines
of light trucks and sport utility vehicles and exceeds performance requirements of major North American Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) for vehicles equipped with diesel engines from Cummins, Duramax and International (Navistar).
The product is formulated to provide engine wear protection, disperse soot, maintain viscosity control of soot-laden oil, minimize deposits on critical engine parts, and resist viscosity breakdown even in severe services such as towing and hauling at high temperatures.
API CJ-4 is the latest diesel engine oil standard that meets the lubrication requirements of diesel engines compliant with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) 2007 emissions regulations for urban transportation vehicles and on-highway trucks. These vehicles are equipped with pollution control devices such as diesel particulate filters (DPF) and diesel oxidation catalysts (DOC). OEMs require use of Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel fuel and recommend use of CJ-4 quality lubricants in these vehicles to protect the performance and life of the pollution control devices.
