At the Great American Trucking Show in Dallas on Thursday, Aug. 23, Chevron Products Co. announced its latest product, Delo 400 LE Synthetic SAE 5W-30, designed to provide improved fuel economy while meeting industry and engine manufacturers’ performance requirements. The mixed-fleet gasoline and diesel motor oil is suited for heavy- and medium-duty trucks operating both on- and off-highway as specified by the OEM.

Delo 400 LE Synthetic SAE 5W-30 is recommended for engines in which the API CJ-4 or API SN service categories and SAE 5W-30 viscosity grade are recommended and is designed to meet the demands of exhaust gas recirculation and selective catalytic reduction engines. The motor oil is formulated to deliver up to 4.5 percent fuel economy improvement with short-haul trucks (Class 6) and up to 2 percent with long-haul trucks (Class 8) when compared to SAE 15W-40 reference oil in SAE J1321 fuel consumption testing.

“We understand that many of our customers are focused on managing fuel costs,” said Jim Gambill, North America Commercial and Industrial brand manager. “Lubricants can play an important role in improving fuel economy, allowing fleet owners to reduce operating costs and stay competitive.”

The new motor oil joins Delo 400 LE SAE 10W-30 to create a line of Chevron diesel engine oils focused on delivering improved fuel economy without sacrificing engine durability. “Our new Delo 400 LE Synthetic SAE 5W-30 is part of Chevron’s vision to offer a line of lubricants that deliver fuel economy without sacrificing engine or component durability,” Gambill said.
