ConocoPhillips 76 Firebird Heavy Duty EC 15W40
September 2008, TruckingInfo.com - Feature
ConocoPhillips introduced 76 Firebird Heavy Duty EC 15W40.
This oil is the API CJ-4 upgrade of its diesel engine oil product made from rerefined base oils and a tailored, low SAP (sulfated ash, phosphorus and sulfur) additive to meet lubrication requirements of the 2007 and later model year, low emissions diesel engines equipped with exhaust after-treatment devices.
The product is backwards compatible for use in pre-2007 engines specifying lubricants of the previous API categories.
"With increased demand for API CJ-4 oils in the industry, and in particular by transit agencies and other public institutions subject to government mandates on the procurement and use of rerefined products, it made good business and environmental sense to introduce this product to our customers," says Reggie Dias, director, commercial products, ConocoPhillips Company.
76 Firebird Heavy Duty EC 15W40 is part of the company's environmentally responsible lubricant products line designed to conserve valuable, natural resources and help reduce the negative environmental impact from unregulated disposal of used oil.
The oil meets federal, state and/or municipal requirements on the procurement and use of rerefined products by public agencies and institutions. It also meets the latest heavy duty engine oil specifications of major engine builders for use in metro bus fleets, on-highway trucks and off-highway equipment and provides the following performance benefits:
• Soot control to disperse soot and minimize soot-caused oil thickening
• Wear and corrosion protection to reduce engine wear and prolong engine life
• Enhanced oxidation resistance and thermal stability to extend oil life
