Global factory fill ATF for Allison Transmission now available

Petro-Canada Lubricants announced the availability of DuraDriveTM HD Synthetic 668, the worldwide factory first-fill automatic transmission fluid (ATF) for Allison Transmission’s TES 668TM specification.

In October 2020, Petro-Canada Lubricants, a HollyFrontier business, announced that it has signed a supply agreement to become the only worldwide first-fill supplier of TES 668TM automatic transmission fluid for Allison Transmission, the premier global manufacturer of  medium- and heavy-duty commercial automatic transmissions.

Providing anti-shudder durability 13 times greater than the reference fluid, two times better oxidation control, and optimal wear protection, DuraDrive HD Synthetic 668 sets a new standard for ATF durability, transmission performance and equipment protection.

Through reduced wear and unplanned maintenance and smoother operation, DuraDrive HD Synthetic 668 contributes to a lower total cost of ownership and delivers the performance benefits required for Allison Transmission’s TES 668™ specified factory fill fluid, according to Petro-Canada. The new transmission fluid is specified for on-highway vehicles, including vocational applications and is fully backwards compatible for all 1000-4000 Series Allison transmissions that require an approved TES 295® fluid. 

“The launch of DuraDrive HD Synthetic 668 is a testament to the technical capabilities of our team,” said Alex Buczek, category manager, Heavy-Duty Engine and Driveline Oils, HollyFrontier Lubricants and Specialties. “We are proud to have worked with Allison Transmission to develop an automatic transmission fluid that exceeded the demanding standards set by their TES 668™ specification.
