Synthetic oil for emissions-compliant engines.

Petro-Canada has introduced its Duron XL Synthetic Blend 15W-40 heavy-duty engine oil, which in addition to other specifications, now meets the stringent Mack EO-N Premium Plus specification.

"Duron XL Synthetic Blend has been leading the fight against soot-induced engine wear since 1999," said Petro-Canada's Jim Abram, category manager, heavy-duty engine oils and commercial products. "The Mack EO-N Premium Plus specification confirms what has already been proven by more than three years of field trials, bench tests and by customers under the toughest conditions."

Duron XL Synthetic Blend 15W-40 is formulated using Petro-Canada's patented HT purity process which Petro-Canada said produces 99.9 percent pure clear synthetic base oils. By removing impurities, the Duron XL Synthetic Blend retains its fresh oil properties longer, according to the company. Petro-Canada blends in specialty additives for longer fluid life and greater equipment protection from abrasive soot particles.

"Duron XL Synthetic Blend 15W40 has proven to provide extended seasonal drain intervals, less maintenance and smoother running engines," said Abram. "And that ultimately means greater cost savings over competitive conventional oils."

Duron XL Synthetic Blend 15W-40 is formulated for use in a wide variety of heavy-duty engines and has the global credentials to make it suitable for use where heavy-duty engine oil is being consolidated for cost savings. In addition to Mack EO-N Premium Plus and API CI-4, Duron XL 15W-40 also meets Global DHD-1, JASO DH-1, ACEA E5 E3, VDS-2 (VDS-3 in progress), MB228.3, Cummins 20078, MTU MTL 5044 Type II, DDC/MTU 2000/ 4000 Type II, CAT TO-2, Allison C-4, and JASO-MA standards.

Petro-Canada offers a full line of synthetic, synthetic blend, single grade and multi-grade heavy-duty engine oils marketed worldwide under the Duron brand name. Technical and after sales service support are also available worldwide.

The company has offices in Canada, the United States and Europe and blends and packages more than 350 different lubricants, specialty fluids and greases that are exported to more than 60 countries on six continents.
