Valvoline recently introduced a new engine oil that is approved for use in natural gas, diesel and gas fleet engines. The Premium Blue One Solution features wear and deposit protection as well as high-temperature oxidation resistance and base number retention to support long oil life.
"The purpose of Premium Blue One Solution is to dramatically simplify the fill process for fleet managers, enabling one proven product to be used across a number of engine applications," said David Young, vice president of Valvoline Heavy Duty. "While there were previously oils in the marketplace that could be used in diesel and gas engines, there was not one approved across all fuel types – until now."
The engine oil was initially developed as part of Valvoline's relationship with Cummins Westport (CWI), which recently introduced a new series of low-emission engines. Through that partnership, Valvoline created an engine oil that is the recommended product for those Cummins engines but can also be used in engines from other manufacturers.
"Our customers have been very clear that a high-performance engine oil compatible with both mobile natural gas and diesel engines would be a critical benefit to their bottom line," said Yemane Gessesse, CWI's director of engineering. "Valvoline Premium Blue One Solution meets that need. From a technology standpoint, this a huge advancement in the engine oil industry."
