Chevron Delo 600 ADF heavy-duty engine oil was introduced three years ago, but many fleet managers still aren’t familiar with it, or don’t fully understand how this unique lubricant can help reduce maintenance requirements, cut fuel consumption, and lower a vehicle’s total cost of ownership.
In this blog, we’ll discuss a common problem encountered by modern-day diesel engines, the business impact of that problem, how Chevron Delo 600 ADF helps solve that problem, and how Woodford Oil Company can help you determine if this advanced lubricant is a good choice for your fleet!
Over the years, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has implemented stricter emissions requirements for on-highway and off-highway heavy-duty diesel engines. While these standards have helped lower emissions, the engine aftertreatment systems now mandatory in all new vehicles bring their own set of challenges when it comes to vehicle operating efficiency and total cost of ownership.
A key component of emission control systems is the diesel particulate filter (DPF), which plays a crucial role in cleaning diesel exhaust before it hits the tailpipe. It reduces emissions of particulate matter by collecting and storing incombustible particles in the form of ash and soot. But most of the ash that collects in the DPF comes from consumed lubricant. Even today’s low-ash engine oils clog DPFs, often resulting in lower vehicle operating efficiency, increased component wear and tear, and higher fuel consumption.
Delo 600 ADF with OMNIMAX™ technology solves the problem of DPF ash buildup while providing outstanding engine protection. By producing 60% less ash vs. typical low-ash engine oils, Delo 600 ADF drastically reduces the rate of DPF clogging. This extends DPF service life by up to 2.5 times, and increases fuel economy retention by up to 3%. The result is less maintenance, longer component service life, lower fuel consumption, reduced vehicle operating costs, and an improved bottom line.
