Chevron on Monday introduced a new fully synthetic diesel engine oil,  Delo 400 XSP SAE 15W-40 – a formulation designed to help maximize engine protection and minimize oil consumption.

Chevron commercial sector manager Jason Gerig said Delo 400 XSP SAE 15W-40 fills a need for a heavier-weight 15W-40 with the performance of a full synthetic. “This oil has proven to provide exceptional high-temperature protection even under the most stressful of conditions," he added. "The oil was also formulated to minimize consumption which in turn extends drain intervals.”

Delo 400 XSP SAE 15W-40’s soot dispersancy and wear control helps protect the engine’s cylinders, pistons, rings and valve train components against wear and corrosion – promoting ideal service life and minimal wear – contributing to maximum vehicle use and minimum downtime. 

Fully backward compatible for use in both newer and older heavy duty engines, Delo 400 XSP can be used in both diesel and gasoline-fueled engines, allowing customers to consolidate their engine oils across personal, recreational and business vehicles or equipment.

Delo 400 XSP SAE 15W-40 is a mixed-fleet engine oil recommended for naturally aspirated and turbocharged four-stroke diesel engines and four-stroke gasoline engines in which the API CK-4, API SN or API SN PLUS service categories and SAE 15W-40 viscosity grade is recommended.

Chevron Delo 400 XSP SAE 15W-40 with ISOSYN Advanced Technology will launch at Walmart and
