Chevron Products Company, a division of Chevron, U.S.A. Inc., announced plans to simplify its Delo Heavy Duty Engine Oil (HDEO) product line by focusing its portfolio on synthetic blend and full synthetic products. This move is designed to ensure customers have access to reliable product supply and competitively aligned and priced synthetic blend and synthetic options.
In a rolling transition beginning in January 2024, Chevron will sunset three HDEO products – Delo 400 SDE SAE 10W-30, Delo 400 SDE SAE 15W-40 and Delo 400 XLE SAE15W-40 – replacing them with Delo 400 XLE SB SAE 15W-40, a new high-performing synthetic blend. This new, high-quality synthetic blend will complement Chevron’s existing Delo 400 XLE 10W-30.
Chevron’s new streamlined portfolio of synthetic blend and synthetic products can be used in all applications where Chevron’s conventional heavy duty engine oils were used.
“At Chevron, we've always been eager to adapt, to focus on meeting our customers' needs, to move them forward,” said Walt Collier, Americas Commercial Sector Manager at Chevron. “That’s precisely why we’re breaking from convention and simplifying our Delo product line. These updates will allow us to better meet our customers' needs today and well into the future. By moving to a synthetic blend and synthetic only portfolio of Delo HDEO products, our customers will continue to get the highest quality heavy duty engine oils they’ve come to expect from Chevron, with an increased focus on supply reliability and price competitiveness.”
