Nov. 18, 2021—The American Petroleum Institute on Wednesday announced the publication of the API 1525A Second Edition.
The publication, according to a news release, provides procedures for managing the engine oil chain from manufacturing to installation. The whole document is available for free on the API website.
“Oil marketers, distributors and installers of engine oil who use API 1525A and have committed to supplying API licensed engine oils will ensure that consumers always receive high-quality oil,” said API Senior Manager Jeffrey Harmening. “Oils meeting API specifications will provide the required protection for today’s modern engines and enable them to operate optimally and efficiently which in turn reduces their carbon footprint.”
The procedures specifically address marketer/blender practices, the importance of proper ordering and receipt of bulk engine oils, and requirements for informing consumers about different available engine oils.
