Reduces maintenance costs High alkaline reserve ensures that corrosive acids formed by the combustion of fuel sulfur are effectively neutralized, thereby minimizing corrosive wear without causing valve distress due to “guttering”. The special “zinc-free” ashless anti-wear additive system protects components from abrasive and adhesive wear, and guards against attack of silver plated bearings.
Maintains power output Outstanding thermal and oxidation stability assist the detergent/dispersant additive system in providing excellent control of high temperature deposits in areas such as the undercrown of the piston and piston ring belt area, enabling piston rings to function efficiently.
Prolongs oil change-out periods Base Number (BN) level and superior alkalinity retention characteristics maintain sufficiently high BN under all service conditions to ensure corrosive acids formed by the combustion of fuel sulfur are effectively neutralized.
