TO PROVE CASTROL VECTON LONG DRAIN’S ABILITY TO SIGNIFICANTLY EXTEND DRAIN INTERVALS, WE CONDUCTED A 250,000 MILE PERFORMANCE TEST USING VECTON LONG DRAIN 15W-40 AND A COMPETITOR 15W-40 TRUCK OIL.
- Three Mercedes-Benz MBE-4000 engines were used in the trial
- The test involved long haul furniture transport from North Carolina to California – 7,000 miles a week.
- The competitor oil was drained at 24,000 miles, the Vecton Long Drain interval was 48,000 miles. The oil was sampled every 12,000 miles.
SO, DID CASTROL VECTON LONG DRAIN DELIVER?
- In every area tested, our oil outperformed the rival product even though it was used twice as long
- Wear protection and component cleanliness were excellent, even at double the drain interval.
SEE THE EVIDENCE FOR YOURSELF…
The pistons from engines using Vecton Long Drain were very clean and received a rating of 109 demerits.
Big end bearings were practically new in appearance. Impressed? Why not see other case studies showing the staying power of Vecton Long Drain
