DIESEL ENGINE LUBRICANTS SWITCH TO GENERATION 4

The highly dispersant Generation 3 diesel engine lubricating oils introduced about seven years ago are widely used and generally perform very well, but present trends in engine design and operation are making increasingly severe demands on these oils. For this reason, a new type of oil known as Extra Performance or Generation 4 has been developed, and it is expected that such oils will begin to enter commercial service this year. They offer higher alkalinity, even better dispersancy, and greater resistance to thermal breakdown.
