Chevron Products Company has announced that Daimler Trucks North America will begin factory-filling the Detroit engines in new Freightliner and Western Star brand trucks with Chevron Delo 400 ZFA SAE 10W-30 (API FA-4) engine oil starting on January 1, 2019.
“Chevron puts great value on OEM relationships, as they are critical for developing engine oil products that help OEMs lower total cost of ownership for fleet managers,” said James Booth, North America Commercial Sector Manager at Chevron.
“We are especially excited about the effect this will have on our factory fill business,” he added. “As of January 2019, Chevron Delo will supply two thirds of the North American heavy-duty factory fill engine oil market.”
Beginning January 1, Delo 400 ZFA SAE 10W-30 will be factory-filled in all Detroit DD13, DD15, and DD16 engines. The oil company noted that Chevron Delo engine oils are available upon request via DTNA’s 700-plus dealers and its Elite Support dealership network.
According to Chevron, DTNA “led the industry with approval of API FA-4 oils for its heavy-duty line of engines back to EPA 10, citing longer oil drain intervals and enhanced fuel economy benefits.”
