Q8Oils launches new lubricant for diesel engines

Q8OilsQ8Oils has reacted to customer demand for a high performance but cost effective low SAPS commercial oil with the launch of Q8 T904 10W-40.

The oil has been developed due to new technology from one of the company’s additive suppliers, which has allowed Q8Oils to provide a cost effective low SAPS commercial engine oil that covers both ACEA E6 and E7 applications. The oil has been designed for EURO 4 and 5 diesel engines equipped with a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) or catalytic after-treatment systems, operating on low sulphur diesel fuel whilst under severe heavy-duty conditions.

The benefits of the newly launched oil include minimised DPF plugging, protection for catalytic after-treatment systems, excellent protection against bore polishing and cam wear, prolonged oil drain intervals and reduced maintenance costs. The product provides quick lubrication after cold starting, thus limiting engine wear and engine fouling due to the reduction of combustion soot.

Kevin Duncan, technical manager at Q8Oils, said: “The launch of this new engine oil illustrates Q8Oils’ dedication to both product innovation and responding to the needs of our customers. We are pleased to offer a new cost effective solution to the many customers needing to supply engine oil for EURO 4 and 5 diesel engines.”

    Great Post. Wonderful to see Q8 is so responsive to consumer needs and I, for one, hope other leading brands follow suit and let us have oils that give better performance at a lower cost and make engines last longer. I hope Q8 will also introduce 5W40 and other grades to suit a wider range of diesel engines. Is the oil modified ground up or does the company claim better performance only due to improved additives?
