Next Generation of Oil: PC-11

On December 1, 2016, two new categories of heavy-duty engine oil standards will be licensed: API CK-4 and FA-4. These new categories are part of Proposed Category 11 or PC-11.  PC-11 is broken down into two subcategories: PC-11A and PC-11B

PC-11A will consist of the viscosity grades we have today. CJ-4 to CK-4 backward compatible.

PC-11B engine oils that are lighter viscosity grades provide better fuel economy FA-4 oils will be of a lighter viscosity, they may not be backward compatible depending on OEMs.

Both engine oils will deliver superior performance over current oils. The CK-4 will protect new and older engine models. And, the FA-4 was designed to provide optimized fuel economy for 2017+ engines.

What does this mean for the off-road industry?

  • New diesel engine oil technology will provide opportunities for extended oil drain performance for off-road vehicles versus API CJ-4 Oils
  • Improved oil oxidation performance can help reduce piston deposit formation and increase engine rebuild life due to lower wear.
  • Potential selection of PC-11A SAE 10W-30 can provide improved start-up performance and better wear protection while maintaining hardware protection
  • Wide range of products will allow for improved product selection for both new and older equipment used by off-road equipment companies.
