Petro-Canada Lubricants, a HollyFrontier business, 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.
Using its leading-edge lubricant technology, Petro-Canada Lubricants meets the requirements of the Allison Transmission TES 668TM specification with the formulation of DuraDriveTM HD Synthetic 668. DuraDrive HD Synthetic 668 is specified for on-highway vehicles, including vocational applications, and is fully backwards compatible for every Allison transmission that requires an approved TES 295® fluid.
The DuraDrive HD Synthetic 668 factory fill contract will provide Allison Transmission’s manufacturing sites and customers worldwide with access to the durability, performance enhancement and equipment protection that Petro-Canada Lubricants’ automatic transmission fluid delivers.
“Allison Transmission is a world-renowned producer of automatic transmissions and we are delighted to be recognised as their global fluid supplier of choice,” said Tony Weatherill, president, Petro-Canada Lubricants Inc. “This initiative demonstrates the technical capabilities of our team, who worked closely with Allison Transmission to develop this formulation which sets a new standard for automatic transmission fluids.”
