Valvoline Inc. launched the second iteration of its heavy-duty engine oil first released in 2018 — Valvoline Premium Blue One Solution Gen2. It is licensed for API service CK-4 and SP.

Developed as part of its 25-year relationship with Cummins Inc., Valvoline’s engine oil is not only the recommended product for Cummins’ current portfolio of products in North America but also the new factory fill engine oil for Cummins Natural Gas engines (ISX12 N, L9N, B6.7N) and the Cummins X15, X12, L9 and B6.7 diesel engines.

At the same time, it is approved for use in multiple heavy-, medium- and light-duty engine types, and provides improved oxidation and thermal stability in addition to extended drain intervals for diesel and natural gas engine platforms, according to the Lexington, Ky.-based company.

“We are confident that this second-generation engine oil has the tremendous potential to grow the multifuel engine-oil category that Valvoline helped establish in 2018,” said David Young, Valvoline vice president of heavy-duty sales.

Valvoline, established in 1866, is a worldwide marketer and supplier of premium-branded lubricants and automotive services, with sales in more than 140 countries. — Transport Topics
