chevron oronite introduces OLOA® 54530, a new Mid-SAPS additive meeting multiple OEM claims

SAN RAMON, Calif., October 12, 2020 – Chevron Oronite Company, LLC recently introduced OLOA® 54530, an innovative new Mid-SAPS additive package that is compatible with all types of modern after-treatment systems in both diesel and gasoline engines and helps protect against low-speed pre-ignition (LSPI) events. It also meets multiple OEM claims, including BMW, Daimler, and Opel.

“With a reliable supply, simplified logistics, and solutions that are easily adapted to customer product offerings, we can help customers meet ever-changing automotive engine oil performance needs,” said Teri Crosby, vice-president, Global Technology, Chevron Oronite. “OLOA 54530 meets many of the latest industry and OEM specifications, including: ACEA C2 / C3, API SP, BMW LL-04, Daimler MB 228.51, MB 229.52, and the new Opel Vauxhall 0401547.”

Because of the demand for improved fuel economy and reduced emissions, passenger car manufacturers are designing new and different engines that provide higher power density and improved efficiency. As a result, they are also prone to LSPI events and this newest Oronite product takes on all those issues in one additive package.

“OLOA 54530 meets the latest, most-demanding OEM requirements by delivering fuel economy benefits; protecting against LSPI; and extending drain intervals,” said Patrice Estoueig, product line manager, Automotive, Europe-Africa-Middle East Region, Chevron Oronite. “Our customers will appreciate these and many other performance benefits it offers, including excellent wear protection, piston cleanliness, sludge reduction, and oxidation control.”

Using Chevron Oronite’s PCFlex ADDvantage® approach, OLOA 54530 is an example of a product created with flexibility in mind that is also approved for use with a wide range of Group III base oils and meets multiple OEM claims.
