Texaco Lubricants – a Year in Review

Texaco Lubricants – a Year in Review Texaco Lubricants – a Year in Review

2023 was an interesting and exciting year across the board for Texaco Lubricants. There’s plenty to reflect on, from the introduction of brand-new products to a diverse array of manufacturer approvals for a variety of Texaco brands.

First on the list is a product approval for Texaco Havoline ProDS V SAE 0W-30, which successfully met the BMW Longlife-04 manufacturer requirements. With this approval, the product is now suitable for use in a wide range of BMW, Volkswagen, Porsche, and Audi gasoline and diesel passenger cars and light vans. Among the product’s many benefits are its advanced additive technologies that promote engine wear protection, performance, and uptime, as well as its ‘keep-clean’ technology that offers deposit and sludge protection, helping to optimise fuel economy.

Continuing with the Havoline theme, 2023 also welcomed the arrival of the Havoline PitPack system, a game-changing display and dispensing system for customers stocking engine oils. Intuitively designed to maximise efficiencies, garages can now stock a wider range of viscosities without taking up the space of a tank or multiple drums. It’s also worth mentioning that the carton is fully recyclable, further enhancing its convenience and versatility.

The year was just as prosperous for products in our HDAX range, such as Texaco HDAX 9500 SAE 40, which recently secured approval from the TEDOM Group. Following the successful completion of a field trial that lasted a grand total of 2,500 hours, the oil proved its capabilities in one of TEDOM’s engines, running on natural gas. An appealing choice for customers, HDAX 9500 offers customers optimum protection against corrosion and piston deposit control.

Turning our attention to our Delo range, the Texaco Delo 400 XSP SAE 5W-20 recently met MAN M3977 approval and Euro VI-d emission requirements. The product is specially designed to optimise fuel economy performance, while helping to maintain reliable component wear protection and engine service life. What’s more, it’s been formulated to minimise wear, scuffing, and bore polishing, as well as helping to reduce maintenance downtime and cost.

2023 was quite a year, and we look forward to continue to deliver exceptional products and services in 2024 and beyond.
