New Perkins Diesel Engine Oil is the lifeblood of your engine

Published 19th May 2016

You might think that engine oils are all the same. In fact oil quality varies greatly. Lower quality oil has a shorter working life. Its impact on your engine will be higher fuel consumption and ultimately it will shorten your engine’s life.

Using a good quality oil is genuinely better for your engine, as it will maximise engine life, control emissions and reduce the cost of maintenance. The correct oil will give you significant benefits such as smoother running, longer engine life and better return on your investment.

To address our customer’s needs, Perkins launched a new diesel engine oil (DEO), the only oil formulated specifically to match the conditions in Perkins engines.

Oil’s key role is to lubricate the engine and remove heat. With increasing emissions standards and demands for power efficiency, engine oil has to work harder than ever to protect your diesel engine. Ever more sophisticated engine design and demands for reduced emissions means smaller working tolerances inside the engine, so the quality and performance of the oil becomes more important.

The oil also reduces engine wear by preventing the build-up of deposits and sludge. With lower-quality engine oils, the levels and quality of additives can be significantly lower, dispersant levels may mean ash and deposits may not be kept in suspension, allowing them to stick to piston and rings.

Why use Perkins Diesel Engine Oil?

Perkins DEO 15W-40 provides superior performance in Perkins engines because it is designed and tested to specifically meet the performance needs of Perkins products. It has been validated in multi-cylinder engine tests (CAT ECF-2) to provide optimum piston deposit control, soot control, wear control, and thermal stability. Ensuring Perkins DEO 15W-40 is the best oil to help the customer achieve the full design life and performance out of their Perkins engine.

Perkins DEO 15W-40 has demonstrated excellent wear control, and superior oxidation resistance in controlled long drain field tests. Perkins DEO 15W-40 keeps harmful soot particles finely dispersed in the oil. This feature reduces wear, eliminates oil filter plugging, and keeps the crankcase clean, ensuring Perkins DEO 15W-40 provides long oil drain capability.

Tier 3 and below suitability

The CI-4 classification ensures the performance of US EPA Tier 3 / EU Stage IIIA in diesel engines. This Perkins DEO formulation is also appropriate to be used in Tier 0 and 2 engines.
