ConocoPhillips says its new premium synthetic-blend diesel engine oil, Kendall Super-D XA (Exhaust Advantage), was formulated to meet the American Petroleum Institute (API) CJ-4 specification and engine-maker requirements for 2007 low-emission diesel engines. Kendall Super-D XA will also provide enhanced performance and protection for older engines, the refiner says.
It’s formulated from a ConocoPhillips Lubricants proprietary additive of proven drain capability and performance in a blend of Group II and synthetic base oils, according to the company, to provide enhanced oxidation resistance, thermal stability, film strength and more advanced low-temperature properties compared to a non-synthetic blend formulation.
The new oil has been created from advanced low Sulfated Ash, Phosphorus, and Sulfur (SAPS) technology which ensure advanced protection for the life and performance of exhaust after-treatment devices in 2007 engines, without compromising protection in older engines.
The company will continue to offer its “heritage” oils, Kendall SHP Diesel Engine Oil and Super-D 3 Diesel Engine Oil, which meet the previous API CI-4 PLUS specification.
