Engen Petroleum, a South African oil company focusing on the downstream refined petroleum products market and related businesses, has launched an advanced formulation of Engen Dieselube 700 Super.

Engen Dieselube 700 Super has been upgraded from API CI-4 Plus to API CK-4 technology, the latest diesel engine oil “C” category licensed by the American Petroleum Institute (API).

API CK-4 oils exceed the performance criteria of API CJ-4, CI-4 with CI-4 PLUS, CI-4, and CH-4 and can effectively lubricate engines calling for those API Service Categories. These oils are formulated for use in all applications with diesel fuels ranging in sulfur content up to 500 parts per million (ppm) (0.05% by weight).

API CK-4 oils are designed to provide enhanced protection against oil oxidation, viscosity loss due to shear, and oil aeration as well as protection against catalyst poisoning, particulate filter blocking, engine wear, piston deposits, degradation of low- and high-temperature properties, and soot-related viscosity increase. 

“The new Engen Dieselube 700 Super is specifically engineered to deliver durability in the tough African climate, with the added benefit of extending your service intervals,” said Sharveen Maharaj, Engen’s head of Lubricants.

“We understand that farmers face tough challenges every single day—including harsh weather conditions, price fluctuation, and stiff competition—which is why we are committed to making life easier for our agricultural partners,” said Maharaj.

“To help achieve this, our technologically advanced products have been developed to provide the best protection for farming equipment to help increase productivity and reduce costs.”
