Learn about the development of API PC-12 engine oils for diesel engines and new gasoline engine oil specifications.
As engine technology continues to advance, the American Petroleum Institute (API) is ready to meet the future demands for new gas- and diesel-engine oil specifications. With work already started on the development of API PC-12 engine oils for diesel engines and new gasoline engine oil specifications on the horizon, API will provide up to date information about both and their importance to your business.
Jeff Harmening, senior manager-EOLCS/DEF/MOM, will also discuss details about the significant updates and improvements to key systems employed by API to ensure proper licensing of motor oils plus their proper storage and handling. He will also provide information about procedures for how the process of motor oils being managed in the chain of custody have been updated.
View the webinar to learn about:
- API PC-12 for diesel engines and anticipated gasoline engine oil specifications.
- How updated API standards benefit oil change and quick automotive maintenance shop owners and operators.
- API 1509 - Engine Oil Licensing and Certification System which contains the latest standards and marketing guidelines for API Engine Oil Quality Marks which governs how engine oil marketers certify that gasoline- and diesel-engine oils meet API’s stringent performance standards.
- API 1525 - Bulk Oil Testing, Handling, and Storage Guidelines which provide recommended equipment and procedures for the proper handling of incoming and outgoing shipments of lubricants to prevent contamination and spillage plus protect product quality.
- API 1525A - Bulk Engine Oil Chain of Custody and Quality Documentation which provides procedures for managing the bulk engine oil chain of custody to ensure oil quality from the point of manufacture to installation in a consumer’s engine.
- Update about the API Aftermarket Audit Program (AMAP) which tests packaged and bulk engine oil samples from around the world.
