Are you API SP Ready?

The two new ILSAC specifications, GF-6A and GF-6B, and a new API Service Category, API SP have been introduced representing the next generation of PCMO engine oils. See more information here.

These specifications are designed to:

  • Prevent Wear
  • Protect against LSPI and Timing Chain wear
  • Ensure proper operation
  • Improve fuel economy

See this video link from API for more information on GF-6.

These specifications introduce new advanced performance requirements for PCMO applications. This includes seven new tests, including a chain wear test and a new test for ultra-low viscosity engine oils. The standards also include the new low speed pre-ignition (LSPI) test to ensure protection.
