As a low viscosity synthetic base oil, Texaco Delo 400 XSP-SD – SAE 5W-30 promotes cold engine start wear protection for engines operating in sub-zero temperatures and includes advanced dispersant and detergent technologies developed for soot dispersancy and wear control, helping to keep piston rings, valve and piston lands clean, and improve uptime.

The product helps minimise Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) emission control system cleaning and offers improved service life with its advanced synthetic base stocks and additives offering extended drain through wear, oxidation, sludge and oil thickening control.
