Total Rubia Optima 1100 – is here!!!!

April 3, 2017

1100 pack shotThe next generation of Heavy Duty Engine Oils is here, establishing new industry standards to deliver significant improvements in engine protection and fuel economy.

The introduction of the new PC-11 engine oil performance category will result in the largest change in oil specifications that the industry has seen in a generation. These new categories resulted from years of collaborative effort between the oil and additive industries and diesel engine manufacturers. What is different about the development is API’s introduction of two diesel engine oil standards at the same time.

There are be two types of PC-11 oils: API CK-4 and API FA-4.

CK-4 oils replace CJ-4 oils with the same viscosity grades and oil types (mineral/synthetic) and are backwards compatible down to CF-4.

FA-4 oils are lower in viscosity grades to help maximise fuel economy without compromising durability for next generation engines. They are limited in backwards compatibility.

Both deliver superior performance over current oils. The former will protect new and older engine models. And the latter was designed to provide optimized fuel economy for 2017 engines and beyond that are designed to take advantage of these improvements.

The new Total Rubia Optima Range of CK-4 and FA-4 products include:
