Launch of new Castrol 'Vecton' Range

From 1 June 2015, two variants of the latest Vecton lubricant range from Castrol will be available in Scotland exclusively from Scottish Fuels, one of the largest distributors of fuels and lubricants in Scotland.

 

Designed to meet the demands of large global fleets and meeting the latest OEM specifications, the lubricants will support Scottish hauliers by decreasing maintenance downtime and increasing engine efficiency.


The new low SAPS lubricants are compatible with lower emission fuels and the most efficient vehicles, helping customers to meet sustainability and emissions legislation, such as Euro 6. 


Andrew Salton, lubricants manager at Scottish Fuels, a part of Certas Energy, said: “As larger fleets are formed requiring global suppliers, this brand will help Scottish hauliers and those operating in Scotland to achieve consistency with maintenance across their fleets.


“Castrol is leading the market in terms of product development. The new technology in the Vecton lubricant will have a real impact on the bottom line for operators by decreasing maintenance costs and reducing wear and tear on vehicles as well as decreasing costly down time during maintenance.”


Castrol Vecton 15W-40 CJ-4 is a diesel engine oil which offers up to a 20 per cent increase in engine performance in the latest heavy-duty diesel engines.


Featuring System 5 Technology™, it adapts to changing engine conditions and increases performance in five key areas:


  •  Fuel consumption: Fights oil thickening, resulting in better fuel efficiency
  • Oil consumption: Fights piston deposits, resulting in lower oil consumption
  • Oil drain interval: Fights contaminants, resulting in longer oil drain intervals
  •  Component life: Fights wear and corrosion, enhancing the life of critical engine components
  • Power: Fights soot, improving engine power all the way through the oil drain

 

Castrol Vecton Long Drain 10W-40 LS is a fully synthetic low SAPS engine oil which offers an extended drain. It minimises maintenance requirements, increasing oil drain by up to 100,000 km in the latest European diesel engines with modern low emission systems.


The product is designed for the latest low emission Euro 4 & Euro 5 European trucks and buses and it can also be used for older trucks and buses, and in off-road vehicles and equipment that require this performance level.


Modern engines operate in constantly changing conditions which impacts engine performance. Castrol Vecton Long Drain 10W-40 LS includes System 5 Technology™ that adapts to these changing conditions to help maximise engine performance. It provides exceptional resistance to contaminants, and delivers outstanding performance during extended drain intervals, even under severe operating conditions.


Castrol Vecton Long Drain 10W-40 LS is approved by Mercedes Benz, MAN, Renault, Volvo and Deutz for oil drain up to 100,000 km, in accordance with their specifications.
