Chevron Products Co has announced that its API CJ-4 and API CI-4 PLUS heavy duty diesel engine oils meet the new Caterpillar ECF-2 specification. As of March 1, 2007, Caterpillar recommends use of ECF-2 for pre-2007 on-road and any off-road Caterpillar engines no bigger than the C3500.
These Chevron heavy-duty diesel engine oils meet the new Caterpillar ECF-2 specification:
API CJ-4 products meeting Caterpillar ECF-2 and ECF-3:
- Delo 400 LE Multigrade
- Texaco Ursa Premium TDX EC
API CI-4 PLUS oils meeting Caterpillar ECF-2:
- Chevron Delo 400 Multigrade
- Chevron RPM SAE
- Texaco Ursa Super Plus
Chevron's CJ-4 oils already met the Caterpillar ECF-3 specification, designed for 2007 diesel engines fitted with diesel particulate filters (DPF) that use 15-ppm ultra low sulfur diesel fuel (USLD). Meeting both the ECF-2 and ECF-3 specifications enables operators to implement a one oil inventory strategy for pre-2007 and 2007 compliant Caterpillar on- and off-highway equipment.
