DuronTM Next Generation

On and off-road, operating conditions and business pressures are getting tougher.

And at Petro-Canada Lubricants, tough is just the way we like it.

Driven by API CK-4 and FA-4, we're transforming our DURON product line to be the most advanced, most durable high performance oils we’ve ever made.

DURON Next Generation is ready for any challenge.

The Tougher. The Better.TM

Durability

Future operating conditions will demand even more protection from your engine oil. We are improving Oxidation, Aeration Control and Shear Stability – but we are not stopping there...

4 tough challenges. One DURON.

Higher levels of engine wear protection

Future engine designs and tomorrow’s operating conditions will demand even more protection from your engine oil. With engines that are designed to run at higher operating temperatures and speeds, you will need an oil that is up to the challenge.

The DURON Next Generation lineup is set to be the most durable, high performance oils we’ve ever made, engineered to meet every challenge including the Cummins ISB test, widely considered one of the toughest engine performance tests in the category.

Our more durable oils promise to deliver durability, strength and efficiency by lowering maintenance costs, extending oil drain intervals, and increasing engine uptime for reliable overall productivity - all without compromising engine protection or performance.

Tappet Wear

Cam Wear

DURON API CK-4 is a significant upgrade in performance compared to DURON API CJ-4 as demonstrated in the Cummins ISB test that means ultimate engine protection.

Enhanced fuel economy

Improving fuel economy and reducing environmental impact are the main goals that are driving the API category changes.

Petro-Canada Lubricants has a long track record of developing heavy duty engine oils which can improve fuel economy and continue to provide exceptional engine protection no matter the viscosity grade.

To meet the demands of API FA-4, we have developed an advanced new low viscosity 10W-30 that has demonstrated strong passing results under the same performance demands as the higher viscosity engine oils of the API CK-4 engine oil category.

Oils that can lower your fuel costs – that’s what we mean by Beyond Today’s Standards™.

UP TO 1.8% FUEL ECONOMY IMPROVEMENT VS. SAE 15W-40 API CJ-4 OIL

New and retained fuel economy

Even after 50k miles (80.5k kms) on the oil, DURON core technology API FA-4 10W-30 delivers up to 1.8% better fuel economy (vs. an SAE 15W-40 API CJ-4)

Extended drain intervals

In passing the new category’s toughest engine test program, oxidation, aeration and shear stability tests, DURON Next Generation promises real cost and downtime savings through longer oil drain intervals.*

With improved oxidation control, oils can resist both oxidative viscosity increases excessive deposit formation for longer; This ensures that engines are efficient, protected and durable and therefore able to take greater advantage of fuel economy savings.

The longer your vehicles and equipment can go between oil drains, the better for your operations – and the lower your total lubricant costs. The extended durability of DURON Next Generation means you could stretch drain intervals with no compromise on reliability or engine protection.

* Refer to your engine owner’s manual and utilize oil sample analysis data when exploring whether and how far to extend drains for your operations.

Extreme Temperatures

Temperature extremes can be a big challenge for oil performance. Heat can weaken and corrupt ordinary oils and cold can cause havoc by slowing down oil flow in an engine. Petro-Canada Lubricants’ development team are experts in engine oils – and DURON Next Generation delivers performance you can trust in every temperature extreme – even as low as -40˚C/˚F, depending on the chosen viscosity grade.

We have long been testing our engine oils in Canada’s harshest environments and most extreme temperatures. This capability is a result of unique testing far beyond industry standards, which is now delivered in all of the DURON Next Generation formulations. The result is a product line which provides optimum efficiency wherever and however it is being used.

This no compromise approach means that DURON Next Generation customers are ready to face anything and stay on the road at all times.

Frequently Asked Questions

We will carry API gasoline credentials on our core product line. For those who need a universal mixed fleet engine oil, we will continue to do so.

We will have both synthetic blend and full synthetic products in the DURON Next Generation product line.

You will see a lot of Fuel Economy claims, particularly with the API FA-4 products since they are formulated with the lowest HTHS viscosity levels we have ever seen. It’s important to remember API FA-4 products are expected to be recommended mainly in new engines that specify their use.
Other Fuel Economy (FE) products should deliver comparable results with what we see today, depending on application, and the many other variables that influence Fuel Economy, we are expecting about 1-3 % FE improvement.

It’s simply our core focus, which continues to be ultimate engine protection to keep your assets moving.

PC-11 engine oils will provide extended drain capabilities similar to their API CJ-4 predecessors.
Actual oil drain intervals will depend on the severity of service and type of application. With proper used oil analysis, drains can be extended within certain limits. Always consult your OEM manual to ensure you are following the proper recommendations.
