Utilizing extensive synthesized hydrocarbon fluid (SHF) technology, a superior quality light viscosity automotive engine oil has been developed providing optimized engine performance. This product has been shown to provide significant fuel economy benefits while maintaining excellent performance in the areas of oil economy, engine cleanliness and wear protection. In the past, this level of performance has not been possible using conventionally refined mineral oils.
The superior performance of this product is documented in extensive laboratory engine, chassis dynamometer and field tests. Particular emphasis is placed on extended duration API Sequence tests and EPA fuel economy testing.
