Notably, this is the first time Lucas Oil Synthetic was used in a diesel engine.

Value for Money

Supreme 9000 Full Synthetic 5w20 Engine Oil is specially engineered with a unique blend of synthetic base oils, proven friction modifiers, and an advanced viscosity index improver. The oil has a low-octane weight and provides excellent protection against wear and tear on the engines. It also helps prevent carbon build-up in diesel engines. Notably, it was approved by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in 2015.

Honorable Mention

And heavy-duty diesel engines, which are fitted with state-of-the-art dispersal and ash control systems, will not create deposits and ash on turbochargers. The system has been designed to ensure that the engine’s fuel consumption is low and emissions remain low. It also features an anti-pollution technology for reduced emissions. The system was introduced in 2007 after a government survey revealed that over 95% of diesel trucks have failed due to lack of maintenance.
