In response to requests by diesel fleet operators, a new class of crankcase lubricant has been developed and has proved outstanding in broad field applications. This new extended drain oil maintains full engine life even though it is used three or four times as long without drain as conventional lubes. More than 10 million unit miles have been run on three grades of the oil (SAE 30, 40, and 15W-40) in four makes of diesel engines. The strong inherent oxidation stability, diesel detergency, high alkalinity (with low ash) of the oil combine to control lube degradation, deposits, wear, and corrosion on a par with conventional oils at normal oil drains.
