Valvoline Inc. introduced Valvoline Premium Blue One Solution 9200, an engine oil approved for use in natural gas, API CK-4 application diesel and API SN application gas fleet engines. Valvoline Premium Blue One Solution was initially developed as part of Valvoline’s close relationship with Cummins Westport (CWI), which has introduced a new series of low-emission engines. Through that partnership, Valvoline created an engine oil that is the recommended product for those Cummins engines — and can also be used in engines from other manufacturers.
“The purpose of Premium Blue One Solution is to dramatically simplify the fill process for fleet managers, enabling one proven product to be used across a number of engine applications,” said David Young, vice president of Valvoline Heavy Duty. “We’ve taken our innovation to the next step in terms of natural gas engine oil, bringing a new brand product to the marketplace.”
“While there were previously oils in the marketplace that could be used in diesel and gas engines, there was not one approved across all fuel types – until now,” Young added. “With this product, manufacturers across multiple engine types can be confident in the selection of Premium Blue One Solution to elevate performance and extend protection.”
An engineering innovation, Valvoline Premium Blue One Solution is formulated with:
• High temperature oxidation resistance and TBN retention to support long oil life;
• Improved wear protection; and
• Advanced deposit protection compared to industry requirements.
The new Premium Blue One Solution was officially unveiled at a press conference during the TMC Annual Meeting and Transportation Technology Exhibition in Atlanta.
