Champion Oil, a leader in advanced diesel lubricant technology, will participate at the upcoming SAE Commercial Vehicle Engineering Congress in cooperation with the Engine Manufacturers Association (EMA), the American Petroleum Institute (API) and the Diesel Engine Oil Advisory Panel (DEOAP); which all are involved in the development of a new heavy-duty diesel engine oil performance category named PC-11.

PC-11 (PC stands for proposed category) offers performance features beyond the current API CJ-4 diesel engine oils and is slated for market entry with API approval no later than January 1, 2016. The need for PC-11 is driven by EPA/NHSTA proposed regulations on fuel efficiency and green house gas emissions, increased use of bio-diesel fuel, engine oil foaming concerns, improved protection from higher engine operating temperatures, improved protection from engine oil shear down, and piston/liner wear protection.

The EMA proposal for PC-11 adds performance parameters to address such as: fuel efficiency contribution from the engine oil, bio-diesel fuel compatibility/protection, improved engine protection from aeration, improved oxidation performance, engine oil shear stability protection, and improved scuffing wear protection.

Over the next five years, Champion Oil and engine manufacturers, oil marketers and additive companies will all work together to develop the PC-11 performance category, document improved performance features and ready these new oils for the market place.
