Champion Brands announced the offering of API FA-4 diesel-engine oils to fleets and private-label customers for some of the newer engines currently in the market from Cummins, Detroit Diesel, Navistar and others.
Now available to fleets are 275-gallon totes of Ultra-Fleet API FA-4 10W-30 diesel-engine oil (Part No. 4162). When OEMs recommend this new oil specification, it can make a real difference to a fleet’s bottom line by improving the engine’s fuel efficiency, according to the company.
Fleets can inquire about pricing by emailing [email protected].
Private-label customers can order their size preference from packaged quarts, gallons, 2.5 gallons, 5-gallon pails, 55-gallon drums or 275-gallon totes. Champion soon will be offering a second viscosity of Ultra-Fleet API FA-4 5W30 diesel-engine oil. In time, more and more OEMs will be requiring this type of diesel-engine oil. Private-label inquiries should be made to [email protected].

API Service Category FA-4 describes certain XW-30 diesel-engine oils specifically formulated for use in select high-speed four-stroke-cycle diesel engines designed to meet 2017 model year on-highway greenhouse gas (GHG) emission standards.
These oils are formulated for use in on-highway applications with diesel-fuel sulfur content up to 15 ppm (0.0015% by weight). Refer to individual engine manufacturer recommendations regarding compatibility with API FA-4 diesel engine oils. These oils are blended to a high-temperature high-shear (HTHS) viscosity range of 2.9cP–3.2cP to assist in reducing GHG emissions.
These oils are especially effective at sustaining emission-control-system durability where particulate filters and other advanced aftertreatment systems are used. API FA-4 diesel-engine oils are designed to provide enhanced protection against oil oxidation, viscosity loss due to shear, and oil aeration as well as protection against catalyst poisoning, particulate-filter blocking, engine wear, piston deposits, degradation of low- and high-temperature properties, and soot-related viscosity increase, according to the company.
API FA-4 diesel-engine oils are not interchangeable or backward-compatible with API CK-4, CJ-4, CI-4 with CI-4 PLUS, CI-4 and CH-4 oils. API FA-4 diesel-engine oils are not recommended for use with fuels having greater than 15 ppm sulfur. For fuels with sulfur content greater than 15 ppm, refer to engine-manufacturer recommendations.
