Valvoline Inc., a leading worldwide supplier of premium branded lubricants and automotive services, has introduced Valvoline Premium Blue One Solution 9200, an engine oil approved for use in natural gas engines API CK-4 application diesel and API SN application gas fleet engines. .
“The purpose of Premium Blue One Solution is to dramatically simplify the fill process for fleet managers, enabling one proven product to be used across a number of engine applications,” says David Young, Vice President of Valvoline Heavy Duty. “We've taken our innovation to the next step in terms of natural gas engine oil, bringing a new brand product to the marketplace.”
The new Premium Blue One Solution was officially unveiled at a press conference during the TMC Annual Meeting and Transportation Technology Exhibition in Atlanta, GA.
“In our 150-plus years, we have consistently focused on innovation to develop better products and solve the business challenges of our customers,” says Heidi Matheys, Valvoline Chief Marketing Officer. “With One Solution, we are pleased to introduce another unique product to the industry.”
Valvoline Premium Blue One Solution was initially developed as part of Valvoline’s close relationship with Cummins Westport (CWI), which has introduced a new series of low-emission engines. Through that partnership, Valvoline created an engine oil that is the recommended product for those Cummins engines — and can also be used in engines from other manufacturers.
“Our customers have been very clear that a high-performance engine oil compatible with both mobile natural gas and diesel engines would be a critical benefit to their bottom line. Valvoline Premium Blue One Solution meets that need,” says Yemane Gessesse, CWI Director of Engineering. “From a technology standpoint, this a huge advancement in the engine oil industry.”
“While there were previously oils in the marketplace that could be used in diesel and gas engines, there was not one approved across all fuel types – until now,” Young adds. “With this product, manufacturers across multiple engine types can be confident in the selection of Premium Blue One Solution to elevate performance and extend protection.”
Valvoline Premium Blue One Solution is formulated with:
- Excellent high temperature oxidation resistance and TBN retention to support long oil life
- Outstanding wear protection
- Superior deposit protection compared to industry requirements
