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.

Ice Road Trucker Lisa Kelly Relies on Delo
Up on the ice roads, you and your truck work together like a team. Watch Lisa Kelly from History® Network’s Ice Road Truckers® as she explains the Alaskan way to get the job done.
Lisa Kelly, star of the Histroy Channel’s Ice Road Truckers series, has joined Chevron’s “Reality of Delo” campaign, a modern take on testimonials intended to influence heavy duty diesel equipment users about the benefits of Delo heavy duty motor oil (HDMO).
Kelly, a career truck driver, says she is a long time Delo user.
“I have relied on Delo since I began my career in trucking,” she says. “I drive some of the deadliest roads in the world. I can’t take chances on oils. I need to know I’ve got the most durable, reliable and toughest lubricants in my truck. An oil that I can count on to protect my truck even in the harshest conditions. Up on the ice roads, Delo is just what we use.”
2014 was a year filled with challenges, and continued improvements. We started the year with a tragic event when two of our colleagues were involved in a serious accident resulting in one of them losing their life. All great companies are made up of great people, and ours’ rallied in support of one another. While we continued to move forward, the loss was certainly felt throughout the company. Here are some of the positive changes that occurred throughout the year.
New sales personnel were added to outside sales.
