Chevron showcases lower-viscosity oils

Chevron Products Co. conducted a live teardown of a DD15 engine, with over 400,000 miles of service using Delo 400 XLE 10W-30, during the Mid-America Trucking Show 2014. The event demonstrated the ability of lower-viscosity oils, like 10W-30, to provide comparable protection to a 15W-40 grade, while at the same time improving fuel economy.

“There’s a misconception that lighter viscosity oils don’t offer the same level of protection as heavier oils,” said Jim Gambill, North America Commercial and Industrial Brands Manager, Chevron Products Co. “We’re here to dispel that myth.”

Chevron  also debuted the newly updated Delo Truck, an 80-ft. rolling education center that serves as a mobile ambassador for the Delo brand. The Delo Truck features all-new graphics, a new interactive proof of performance display, an updated DD15 engine cutaway display and an area dedicated to Tier IV emissions and is designed to educate customers on key market issues, Delo technology and the importance of premium performance heavy- duty engine oils, lubricants and coolants.
