Chevron will be moving the focus of its Delo Heavy Duty Engine Oil (HDEO) product line to synthetic blend and full synthetic products, according to a press release.
The rolling transition, beginning in 2024, aims to provide customers with access to reliable product supply and synthetic blend and synthetic options that are competitively aligned and priced.
As the transition begins, Chevron will bring a close to three of its HDEO products: Delo 400 SDE SAE 10W-30, Delo 400 SDE SAE 15W-40, and Delo 400 XLE SAE15W-40. It will replace these with Delo 400 XLE SB SAE 15W-40, a new high-performing synthetic blend that will complement the existing Delo 400 XLE 10W-30.
Chevron has stated that its collection of synthetic blend and synthetic products can be used in all situations in which its conventional heavy duty engine oils were used.
“By moving to a synthetic blend and synthetic only portfolio of Delo HDEO
products, our customers will continue to get the highest quality heavy duty engine oils they’ve come to expect from Chevron, with an increased focus on supply reliability and price competitiveness,” stated Walt Collier, Americas commercial sector manager.
