SAN RAMON, Calif. — Chevron Products Co. has introduced Ursa Super Plus EC SAE 10W-30 motor oil to the U.S. and Canada.
The new heavy duty motor oil is designed to help improve fuel economy in heavy duty diesel vehicles now using SAE 15W-40 engine oil, according to Chevron.
“Fuel economy is a growing concern for fleets and owner-operators,” said Jim Gambill, North America commercial brands manager. “With budgets under constant pressure, many customers are forced to do more with less and must find solutions that fit their needs. Ursa Super Plus EC SAE 10W-30 helps bridge the affordability gap by providing fuel economy benefits in a competitive way.”
According to Chevron, the benefits of Ursa Super Plus EC SAE 10W-30 include:
• Improved fuel economy: Tests show improvements in fuel economy relative to SAE 15W-40 diesel engine oils.
• Protection for engine components: Helps protect engine components against wear and corrosion. Meets stringent API CJ-4 service category requirements, which provide engine protection and improved emission control system life relative to previous generation technology.
• Meets specifications: Provides benefits of a CJ-4 fuel economy product and is a complementary product to Chevron’s Delo 400 XLE SynBlend SAE 10W-30.
Ursa Super Plus EC SAE 10W-30 is specifically formulated for 2010 compliant low-emission diesel engines with selective catalytic reduction, diesel particulate filters and exhaust gas recirculation. It is recommended for use in on-highway diesel engines that require API CJ-4 service category and allow the use of an SAE 10W-30 viscosity grade. Also, it is recommended for select engine types from Caterpillar, Cummins, Detroit, Mack and Volvo.
Chevron recommends checking with the OEM before switching to fuel economy products. Additionally, when evaluating a switch to a lower-viscosity oil, Chevron recommends oil analysis to help ensure optimal performance.
