LUBRICANTS: New Duron website clarifies API CK-4 and FA-4

CALGARY – Petro-Canada Lubricants has launched a new API CK-4 and FA-4 information hub, creating a comprehensive online guide to the new heavy duty diesel engine oil categories for their first official license date of Dec. 1. provides unique insights, background, videos, technical overviews and clear answers to the most frequently asked API CK-4 and FA-4 questions; including how the new oils compare to the previous API CJ-4 category oils.

“We believe that API CK-4 and FA-4 will deliver major efficiency and operational benefits for businesses operating heavy duty vehicles in North America, but more needs to be done to raise awareness of this, which is why we have introduced the website,” said Howard McIntyre, vice president, lubricants, Suncor.  “End users will need to consider which oil category is most suitable for their vehicles depending on age, application, and operating conditions. The new Duron website will help them choose with confidence and understand the enhanced benefits such as extended drain intervals, higher fuel economy or extreme temperature protection they will receive.”

Petro-Canada Lubricants’ API CK-4 and FA-4 product line, Duron™ next generation, has been formulated using leading edge lubricant technology to combine the best additives with the purest base oils. It will be in four performance tiers: Duron HP (high performance, Duron SHP (super high performance), Duron UHP (ultra high performance, and Duron Advanced (API FA-4).

Duron Advanced is Petro-Canada Lubricants’ fully API FA-4 approved product and is specifically designed to maximize fuel economy without sacrificing any engine protection.
