New Gen­uine Mack Engine Oil Ex­tends Drain In­ter­vals

Road Today - - Contents - RT

Mack Trucks has an­nounced ex­tended engine oil drain in­ter­vals for cus­tomers us­ing its newly for­mu­lated gen­uine Mack Engine Oil EOS-4.5. Depend­ing on the ap­pli­ca­tion, oil drain in­ter­vals have been ex­tended by up to 15,000 miles com­pared with pre­vi­ous for­mu­la­tions, help­ing re­duce customer main­te­nance costs. In­tro­duced as the fac­tory fill in Mack’s 2017 en­gines, gen­uine Mack Engine Oil EOS-4.5 also ex­tends drain in­ter­vals for all 2011 and newer Mack en­gines.

“There is a mis­con­cep­tion that Mack Engine Oil EOS-4.5 is sim­ply a re­branded ver­sion of the other engine oils on the shelf, and noth­ing could be fur­ther from the truth,” said Scott Bar­r­a­clough, Mack tech­nol­ogy prod­uct man­ager. “Mack Engine Oil EOS-4.5 is a pro­pri­etary for­mula that is tested and ap­proved with Mack equip­ment, which al­lows us to ex­tend drain in­ter­vals.”

With Mack Engine Oil EOS-4.5, drain in­ter­vals have been ex­tended to 60,000, 50,000 and 40,000 miles for long-haul, re­gional-haul and heavy-haul ap­pli­ca­tions re­spec­tively. Dur­ing the life of a Mack truck, these ex­ten­sions al­low cus­tomers to skip be­tween four and 16 oil drains, help­ing save hun­dreds of dol­lars per year per truck.

Mack Engine Oil EOS-4.5 is avail­able in 10W30 and 15W40 weights and meets Mack’s strin­gent EOS-4.5 engine oil stan­dard, which of­fers pro­tec­tion above and be­yond the new Amer­i­can Petroleum In­sti­tute (API) CK-4 spec­i­fi­ca­tion by re­quir­ing en­hanced per­for­mance for oil ox­i­da­tion and oil aer­a­tion con­trol. It is also for­mu­lated with a lower vis­cos­ity, help­ing im­prove fuel ef­fi­ciency, even un­der high loads and high am­bi­ent tem­per­a­tures.

Mack Engine Oil EOS-4.5 can be used any­where API CK-4 oils are rec­om­mended and is also fully back­ward com­pat­i­ble with all API CJ-4 ap­pli­ca­tions.
