ChevronTexaco Global Lubricants, a provider of heavy-duty engine oils, lubricants and coolants, announced on July 19 that Texaco Ursa Premium TDX SAE 15W-40, Ursa Super Plus SAE 15W-40 and Chevron RPM heavy-duty Motor Oils SAE 15W-40 meet the upcoming CI-4 PLUS specification. CI-4 PLUS is an update of the CI-4 standard that primarily improves soot thickening performance in new low-emission engines. The new standard is scheduled to take effect in September of 2004. In June, ChevronTexaco was the first to introduce a CI-4 PLUS compliant oil when it announced the new formulation of its Chevron Delo 400 Multigrade SAE 15W-40 meets the CI-4 PLUS specification. With this announcement, ChevronTexaco Global Lubricants is first to announce that its full line of heavy-duty diesel engine oils meets the upcoming industry specification.
