Warren Oil Company, Inc., one of North America’s largest independent lubricant manufacturers, announced the launch of its LubriGold SAE 0W-16 Full Synthetic Motor Oil.
Warren’s LubriGold SAE 0W-16 Full Synthetic Motor Oil was developed to meet the needs of the growing number of original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), and consumers requiring an ultra-low viscosity passenger car motor oil.
Whereas SAE 5W-30 and SAE 10W-30 have been the workhorse motor oils for passenger cars for several decades, times are changing. Although engine durability remains a primary concern, fuel economy is driving motor oil demand towards lower viscosity grades (e.g. 5W-20, 0W-20, 0W-16).
Although demand for this viscosity grade is currently limited in the United States, “The trend towards lighter viscosity motor oils that offer meaningful increases in fuel economy without compromising engine durability is clear,” said Irvin Warren, chief executive officer and president of Warren Oil, which is based in Dunn, N.C., U.S.A. Warren said that LubriGold SAE 0W-16 Full Synthetic Motor Oil is the first API-licensed SAE 0W-16 in the U.S. market.
“Warren Oil’s success in the lubricants business is, in part, based on anticipating, planning for, and developing lubricants to assure we are ahead of the curve in meeting both current and emerging market needs, at a competitive price,” said Chris Spell, corporate vice president of marketing. For these reasons, “We made the decision to take a leadership role with the introduction of LubriGold SAE 0W-16 Full Synthetic Motor Oil.”
Warren Oil Company, Inc. currently owns and operates six efficient and modern lubricant manufacturing and packaging plants, including a new state-of-the-art grease plant. Warren Oil markets it lubricants to more than 40 countries, under the WARREN® brand, the LUBRIGUARD® brand, the LUBRIGOLD® brand, and the ITASCA® brand.
