Chevron Products Co. says its API CJ-4 and API CI-4 Plus heavy-duty diesel engine oils meet the new Caterpillar ECF-2 specification. As of the beginning of this month, Caterpillar recommends the use of ECF-2
for pre-2007 on-road and any off-road Caterpillar engines no bigger than the C3500.
The following Chevron heavy-duty diesel engine oils meet the new Caterpillar ECF-2 specification.
Chevron API CJ-4 products meeting Caterpillar ECF-2 and ECF-3:
Delo 400 LE Multigrade
Texaco Ursa Premium TDX EC
Chevron API CI-4 PLUS oils meeting Caterpillar ECF-2:
Chevron Delo 400 Multigrade
Chevron RPM SAE
Texaco Ursa Super Plus
Chevron's CJ-4 oils already met the Caterpillar ECF-3 specification, designed for 2007 diesel engines fitted with diesel particulate filters (DPF) that use 15 ppm ultra low sulfur diesel fuel (USLD). Meeting both the ECF-2 and ECF-3 specifications enables operators to implement a one-oil inventory strategy for pre-2007 and 2007 compliant Caterpillar on- and off-highway equipment.
