Champion Oil has introduced its new premium SAE 5W-30 UltraFleet API-CJ4 synthetic heavy-duty diesel engine oil.

Backed by global certifications and a battery of extreme field and bench tests, says its formulated and blended oil reduces engine wear and corrosion while maintaining viscometric properties. It also is said to provide enhanced protection to engine and exhaust system components.

The formulation of Champion’s new lower viscosity oil ensures durable protection while delivering measurable fuel economy gains, the company says.

In fact, Champion says its new SAE 5W-30 was found to deliver an average of 3.3 percent and up to 4.5 percent fuel economy improvement over a conventional SAE 15W-40 API CJ-4 lubricant tested at an independent testing facility using the SAE J1321 fuel test protocol. Champion says its new oil also is formulated with an innovative and patented friction modifier system that enables the oil to reduce internal drag within engines, resulting in maximum engine power output.

Champion says the new oil will be released in June.
