Champion Oil announced its new premium SAE 5W-30 UltraFleet API-CJ4 Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel Motor Oil for fleet applications.
Champion’s formula provides the same level of engine protection as leading SAE 15W-40 HD Motor Oils, but with more end user benefits, says the company.
Results from real-world field trials prove that Champion’s formulated and blended SAE 5W-30 Heavy-Duty Diesel Motor Oil reduces engine wear and corrosion while maintaining viscometric properties. It also provides enhanced protection to engine and exhaust system components, says the company.
The formulation of Champion’s new lower viscosity SAE 5W-30 Heavy-Duty Diesel Motor Oil ensures durable protection while delivering real-world, measurable fuel economy gains. Champion’s SAE 5W-30 was found to deliver an average of 3.3% and up to 4.5% fuel economy improvement over a conventional SAE 15W-40 API CJ-4 lubricant tested at an independent testing facility using the SAE J1321 fuel test protocol.
Champion’s SAE 5W-30 Heavy-Duty Diesel Motor Oil is formulated with a patented friction modifier system that enables the formulation of this SAE 5W-30 HD motor oil to reduce internal drag within engines, resulting in maximum engine power output. Plus the new oil has a 50% faster time to pressurization than a traditional SAE 15W-40, says the company, leading to faster lubrication of critical valve train hardware and reduced start-up bearing wear.
