Chevron Lubricants has presented two new formulated low viscosity lubricants, under its Texaco Havoline brand, to audiences at Autopromotec in Bologna.
Texaco – a Chevron company brand – offers a comprehensive range of lubricants that help deliver vehicle and equipment performance, protection and reliability under the Texaco, Havoline, Delo, HDAX and Techron brands.
The new Texaco Havoline ProDS MG SAE 0W-20 and Havoline ProDS VB SAE 0W-20 formulations launched at Autopromotec join the Texaco Havoline premium engine oil line up, including Texaco Havoline ProDS V SAE 5W-30, ProDS F SAE 5W-20, ProDS M SAE 5W-30 and ProDS P SAE 0W-30.
Texaco Havoline ProDS products are developed according to the specifications of major OEMs and are made with high-performance synthetic base oils and additives. They are specifically designed to provide effective protection for the latest generation vehicles equipped with engines – including hybrid engines – which deliver low consumption and low emissions.
The benefits of very low viscosity oils
Very low viscosity oils, such as Texaco Havoline ProDS MG SAE 0W-20 and Texaco Havoline ProDS VB SAE 0W-20, are designed to reduce friction losses in the engine, to improve fuel efficiency and consequently to help lower CO2 emissions.
Texaco Havoline ProDS oils help to ensure low consumption thanks to their low viscosity, utilising Chevron’s Deposit Shield technology to tackle the oil wear and durability challenges often associated with very low viscosity oils.
Deposit Shield technology creates a protective barrier that is constantly renewed and is formulated to make the oil adhere to the moving parts of the engine so as to help protect them even with a layer of lubricant of only two microns. At the same time, it is designed to prevent the formation of harmful carbon deposits that can reduce engine efficiency and reduces internal corrosion from exhaust gases which can significantly reduce engine efficiency over time.
The new formulations
Texaco Havoline ProDS MG SAE 0W-20 is a lubricant specifically designed for BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Volvo and GM Europe vehicles. Texaco Havoline ProDS MG SAE 0W-20 is suitable for use in direct and indirect injection petrol engines, in petrol engines equipped with particulate filters (GPF) and in direct injection diesel engines with particulate filters (DPF).
The low viscosity performance of Texaco Havoline ProDS MG SAE 0W-20 is combined with the advanced additive system to minimise consumption, while the Low SAPS technology has been developed to protect catalysts and particulate filters. The new formulation is designed to keep engine components clean, such as turbochargers, even at high temperatures, and to prevent pre-ignition phenomena at low speeds. Texaco Havoline ProDS MG SAE 0W-20 is offered in one or four litre gold coloured cans.
Texaco Havoline ProDS VB SAE 0W-20 is an oil formulated with additives specifically designed to meet the stringent specifications of the latest generation models of the VAG Group. Texaco Havoline ProDS VB SAE 0W-20 is suitable for use in direct and indirect injection petrol engines, and in direct injection diesel engines with gas post-treatment systems using particulate filters (DPF).
Texaco Havoline ProDS VB SAE 0W-20 is formulated to offer performance and protection to the new engines with low emissions and low fuel consumption designed by Volkswagen, Audi and Skoda. The low viscosity performance is combined with the advanced additive system designed to minimise consumption, while the Low SAPS technology has been developed to protect catalysts and DPF particulate filters, reducing emissions. The advanced additive system protects cylinders, pistons, piston rings and valves from corrosion and wear, while keeping the dispersion of unburnt materials and sludge under control, to optimise the operating life of the engine. Good pumpability at low temperatures favours the rapid circulation of the oil to reduce wear during cold starts. Texaco Havoline ProDS VB SAE 0W-20 is offered in one or four litre gold coloured cans.
In addition to the Texaco Havoline ProDS line, the range of engine lubricants for light vehicles is completed with the Texaco Havoline Ultra, Havoline Energy and Havoline Extra ranges. The offer, wide and diversified, This wide-ranging product offer satisfies the needs of older vehicles as well as latest generation vehicles and meets the specifications imposed by many manufacturers and environmental regulations. To add to this, Chevron Lubricants also offers high quality products such as automatic transmission fluids, gear oils, antifreeze, brake and steering fluids and greases.
