Chevron to Offer API CJ-4 and CI-4 Plus Oils in 2007

March 28, 2006

SAN RAMON, CA – Chevron Products Co., a provider of engine oils, lubricants, coolants, and related services, has launched its new CJ-4 engine oil. Chevron will offer both a CJ-4 and a CI-4 Plus version of its Delo- and Ursa-branded oils based on customer feedback and expected market demand. The Delo CJ-4 product, to be known as Delo 400 LE (Low Emissions) Multigrade SAE 15W-40, will be offered alongside the CI-4 Plus specification oil, Delo 400 Multigrade SAE 15W-40. The new Texaco Ursa CJ-4 product will be known as Texaco Ursa LA (Low Ash) SAE 15W-40. The company expects to have both CJ-4 products available Oct. 26, 2006, the API’s intended first license date for the new engine oil specification. “There is a lot of anxiety over new engines, fuels, exhaust treatments and lubricants,” said Nicole Fujishige, commercial marketing manager, North America, Chevron Products Co. “Historically Chevron has fully embraced each new heavy-duty engine oil specification. In this situation, there is clearly a need to retain the CI-4 Plus oil, while introducing the CJ-4 product. Although backwards compatible, CJ-4 will likely be more expensive than CI-4 Plus and is not required for the off-road market or pre-2007 engines. Based on fleet composition, the majority of Chevron’s customers will have a greater need for CI-4 Plus, so we’ll keep that product on the market until conditions change.”
