Petro-Canada Lubricants says it’s gearing up to launch the latest in the Duron product line, GEO LD (Gas Engine Oil Long Drain) 15W-40. Specially formulated for the high combustion temperatures in today’s natural-gas mobile engines, the company says the new lube can extend drain intervals up to 1200 hours while maintaining “exceptional” engine protection and stay-in-grade capability.
The new oil begins with Petro-Canada’s 99.9% pure base oils and is formulated to deliver protection no matter the season. In cold climates, it’s said to pump quickly and easily through the engine, safeguarding against wear and tear. It also performs well in high operating temperatures, the company says, providing fleets with excellent shear stability. This new oil and the entire Duron family have exceeded OEM-required testing.
The oil also sports high resistance to nitration and oxidative thickening, says Petro-Canada.
