Havoline upgrades car oil range

19 July, 2020

Havoline Car Motor Oil range, which includes Havoline ProDS Fully Synthetic ECO 5 series and Havoline? Formula series, has been upgraded to meet the modern car engine lubrication demands to mitigate Low speed pre-ignition (LSPI) and deliver proven enhanced fuel efficiency, engine performance, and prolonged engine life.

Chevron is a world-renowned lubricant company reputed for its advanced technology. Well-trusted lubricant brands such as Caltex, Havoline, Delo and Lanka are marketed by Chevron Lubricants Lanka PLC in Sri Lanka.

Havoline’s Passenger Car Motor Oil product range was specially reformulatedto meet the industry’s latest classification API SNPlus performance standard and to meet the new demand in the market.

?LSPI is a premature combustion event, occurring prior to spark ignition in turbocharged, downsized petrol vehicles. As the name implies, it occurs when engines operate at low speeds and high loads.

It can result in extremely high cylinder-pressures and can lead to heavy knocks.Repeated exposure to these conditions can cause engine hardware failure, including broken spark plugs and cracked pistons.

The number of petrol vehicles in Sri Lanka has grown over the recent past and downsized, turbocharged engines has been the most significant.

While these engines provide higher power density and improved efficiency, they are also prone to LSPI. As such, mitigating pre-ignition involves altering the design of the engine or design of the engine oil to help avoid this emerging issue.
