With only four years to go until new heavy-duty engine oil specifications come into effect, Petro-Canada Lubricants looks at the benefits of meeting stricter greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and targets for better fuel economy.

PC-12 is the new heavy-duty engine oil specification being developed to support Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) meet the upcoming 2027 GHG and fuel mileage regulations issued by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the California Air Resources Board.

PC-12 oils will help equipment operators continue their journey toward improved fuel economy and reduced carbon emissions. Expected to include even lower viscosity lubricants, which could lead to reduced fuel costs for operators and improved protection and durability using the latest lubricant technologies. 

With engines working harder due to increased operating temperatures to improve efficiency and help meet new emission regulation guidelines, PC-12 lubricants are also expected to provide enhanced wear protection and oxidation control to protect the engine hardware.

As the launch of PC-12 oils is still four years away there is still much work to be done in preparation for its arrival, however, Petro-Canada Lubricants will be working with our industry partners and colleagues to support you for its arrival. 

This quick look at what is ahead was provided by Darryl Perificati, senior technical advisor, OEM/automotive and Petro-Canada Lubricants and H.F. Sinclair, brand and chair of the American Petroleum Institute (API) lubricants committee.
