ConocoPhillips has introduced Kendall SHP Diesel 5W40 Full Synthetic, a premium API CJ-4 diesel engine oil, made from high quality synthetic stocks and an advanced additive technology.

The heavy duty engine oil is designed for lubrication of modern low emissions diesel engines with aftertreatment devices and is backwards compatible for use in older engines specifying the previous categories of engine oils.

"We are pleased to offer our customers a new wide-grade full synthetic diesel engine oil that combines advantages of the synthetic stocks and performance of an advanced additive to deliver undiminished protection for heavy duty engines operating in extreme applications that range from high to low in temperature and service," says Reginald Dias, director, commercial products, ConocoPhillips. "Kendall SHP Diesel 5W40 Full Synthetic has the potential to improve the fuel economy relative to 15W40 oil, benefiting customers through reduced fuel usage."

Kendall SHP 5W40 meets lubrication requirements of engines compliant with 2007 low emissions regulations and meets heavy duty engine oil specifications for Caterpillar, Cummins, Detroit Diesel, Mack, and Volvo.

Its features provide the following performance benefits:
• Improved soot handling: helps prevent oil thickening and reduces filter blockage and deposits
• Increased oxidation stability: maintains oil quality by resisting oxidative breakdown
• Better low temperature viscometrics: ensures rapid oil flow for proper lubrication at low temperatures and prevents wear at start-up
• Low lead corrosion: prolongs bearing life by prevention of lead corrosion
• Wear protection: reduces wear on critical parts and extends equipment life
