SAN RAMON, Calif. -- Chevron Texaco Inc. launched an enhanced version of its popular Havoline motor oil that demonstrates almost 40 percent less wear than the previous version in an industry-standard test that measures the wear protection of motor oils on valve trains, the company said.
"There is no new industry specification requiring performance upgrades right now, but regardless, our customers look to us to provide a premium quality oil," said Mark Sztenderowicz, staff engineer for ChevronTexaco Global Lubricants. "With the improved Havoline Motor Oil passing our product testing with flying colors, we can continue our tradition of delivering a great product."
In the U.S. the average age of a car has increased over the past several years. Because of this trend many lubricant suppliers have introduced oils specifically tailored for high mileage vehicles. "With our enhanced motor oil, drivers of both new and older vehicles can continue to count on Havoline to deliver top-quality engine protection," Sztenderowicz said.
The enhanced Havoline brand will be available in SAE 5W-30, 10W-30, 10W-40, 20W-50, 30 and 40 grades and begin rolling out nationally at the end of November.
