Chevron Products Co. has introduced two new, premium synthetic transmission fluids designed specifically for the heavy-duty manual transmission market. Chevron says the new products meet the newly released Eaton Fuller PS-164 Rev 7 specification.

Available as Chevron Delo Synthetic Transmission Fluid SAE 50 and Texaco Syn-Star TL SAE 50, the products meet and exceed performance requirements for extended drain and warranty, according to the company. In addition, both fluids are engineered to offer reduced component wear and potential fuel economy improvements to companies in the commercial transportation and construction markets.

Chevron Delo Synthetic Transmission Fluid SAE 50 and Texaco Syn-Star TL SAE 50 are specially formulated high-viscosity and low-pour-point synthetic lubricants designed to provide year-round outstanding performance under severe climate and operating conditions. During cold weather shifting, the all-season properties of the formulation lubricate transmission parts, quickly resulting in less gear wear and drag, according to Chevron.

“Our new synthetic transmission fluids complement a comprehensive Chevron Delo and Texaco product portfolio,” says Nicole Fujishige, commercial marketing manager for San Ramon, Calif.-based Chevron Products. “This portfolio has demonstrated its ability to improve our customers’ bottom line. The addition of these new synthetic transmission fluids further highlights Chevron’s commitment to provide its customers with the most technologically advanced lubricants available.”
