Whenever you take one of your vehicles off the road, it stops earning you money. Now, at last, there is one way in which you can cut down on this idle time. Castrol announce a new versatile range of oils called Deusol RX Super.
Quite rightly we're exceptionally proud of it.
We should be. Deusol RX Super allows both an extended drain period and has a far longer working life.
Recently some tests have been concluded using turbo charged diesels. The graph below shows what happened after 70,000 miles without an oil change.
See what we mean? Even after this incredible distance Deusol still has a very high total base number. In successive tests, not once did the total base number drop below 8. This is how far our additive technology has progressed.
If you would like visible proof of what happened inside this Scania take a look at its pistons. Remember that turbo charged engines operate at high temperature, nevertheless there was no ring sticking, bearing corrosion or varnish accumulation. In fact, because the oil remained in such good condition the pistons have hardly been touched.

There have been plenty of other tests on Deusol RX Super. For instance RX Super reduces to a minimum cam and tappet wear— particularly important in petrol engines.
Deusol RX Super has also been checked to see how well it suspends combustion soot. See what happened when we deliberately generated dirt build-up in the Perkins test. It took ages before the amount of combustion soot in suspension started to affect the viscosity level. No wonder Deusol RX Super allows such an extended oil drain period and further mileage without sludging.
And that still applies, even if you have coolant and antifreeze contamination. We know. We added Glycol to Deusol in another test just to make sure.
This all adds up to the fact that Deusol RX Super is so versatile that it's equally at home in a stop/start cqld running petrol engine as it is in a highly stressed turbo charged diesel.
Deusol RX Super has many other fans besides ourselves and exceeds the requirements of: U.S. Army Ordnance Specifications MIL-L-2104C and MIL-L-46152. Ford SM-2C-1017A, ESEE-M2C-1004A, ESE-M2C-101C, SSM-2C-9001-AA, SPM-2C-9014A, ESE-M2C-87a/88a, and SPM-2C-9107-A.
There's also General Motors GM 6136M and GM 6041M and API service classifications SE-CD.
And Deusol RX Super has alsc met with approval for all Caterpillar civil engineering plant.
It comes in a complete range. A unique 15W/40 multigrade and monogrades SAE 10, 20 and 30. Deusol RX Super is suitable for all vehicles including the Detroit Diesel.
We suggest you find out more about it. Either direct from Castrol from our representative, or by talking to us on Stand 208 at the Commercial Motor Show.
Your time will be well spent.
In fact, because of the drain time you'll save later, maybe we should say your time will be well invested.
