In the fourth quarter of 2020, Castrol will begin rolling out several additions to its VECTON line of heavy-duty engine oils. First up will be new VECTON Long Drain 5W-30 CK-4/SN, which is scheduled to launch in October.
VECTON Long Drain 5W-30 CK-4/SN with SYSTEM PRO TECHNOLOGY™ is an advanced full-synthetic, all-climate, heavy-duty diesel engine oil specifically engineered to deliver longer useful oil life. SYSTEM PRO TECHNOLOGY delivers up to a 45% extra performance reserve1 that fights oil breakdown by helping to control oxidation, reducing deposits, and neutralizing harmful acids. It also adapts to higher temperatures, which helps to maintain viscosity. All this adds up to longer useful oil life, providing users with the confidence to maximize drain intervals.2
True to its 5W-30 pedigree, VECTON Long Drain 5W-30 CK-4/SN also offers proven cold-start benefits. Compared to conventional 15W-40 oils, this new variant will start flowing through the engine faster to lubricate vital engine components, which can help to prevent engine damage during a cold start. In addition, it requires lower power to crank the engine to life in cold temperatures versus a conventional 15W-40 oil, which can result in improved battery life and/or starter-motor life.
Castrol VECTON Long Drain 5W-30 CK-4/SN can help improve fuel economy without compromising engine protection due to the high-quality, full-synthetic base stocks in its formulation. Bench tests have demonstrated that 5W-30 oils provide a fuel economy benefit vs. 15W-40 oils in a class-8 diesel engine.3
Finally, like all VECTON products globally, the new Long Drain 5W-30 CK-4/SN will be certified carbon-neutral according to the internationally applicable PAS 2060 standard, which will help you to help offset the carbon emissions of your fleet.
