Freestate Petroleum Distributors
Freestate Petroleum Transportation has been hauling petroleum products for over 20 years in the South African market and has grown to over 40 trucks in their fleet. They operate under severe conditions in the South African market with Freightliner trucks and Cummins ISX 500 engines burning 500ppm sulphur diesel fuel under heavy loads of 56,000kg. They recently achieved 1,000,000+ kilometres of total mileage in one of their trucks and wanted to see how the Delo®family of products protected the engine since its first use over 8 years ago.
From Light Vehicles to Heavy Duty Equipment
Passenger vehicles and motorcycles or heavy-duty industrial equipment, Havoline and Delo customers worldwide rely on our lubricants to keep their vehicles at peak performance.
Caltex and Freestate Petroleum personnel agreed to conduct an engine teardown and inspection of the Cummins ISX 500 engine in Bloemfontein, South Africa at the local OE Dealer. The engine burns diesel with sulphur content up to 500 parts per million and uses Caltex Delo® 400 Multigrade SAE 15W-40 and Delo® XLC Extended Life Coolant.
