In an effort to help save the environment without compromising the performance of vehicles, Phillips 66 developed environmental and fuel efficient lubricants. The multinational energy company has formulated new products to fit different kinds of applications. The new line includes Guardol FE Diesel Engine Oil and Ecoterra Hydraulic Oil.

Fuel Efficient: Guardol FE Diesel Engine Oil

Guardol FE Diesel Engine oil is a premium quality, part-synthetic API FA-4 engine oil, formulated for 2016 and newer engines specifying FA-4.

This premium engine oil contains Liquid Titanium, formulated with Group II base stocks and proprietary low-SAPS additive. All these components provide enhanced engine protection for engines where FA-4 is specified.

The liquid titanium additive offers additional protection against abrasive wear and soot-induced oil thickening. It also helps ensure good low-temperature and offers enhanced protection against sludge and varnish formations.

Philipps 66 Guardol FE Diesel Engine Oil with liquid titanium offers the features and benefits enumerated below.

  • Resistance to aeration and foaming
  • Excellent shear stability
  • Excellent low-temperature stability
  • Excellent protection sludge and varnish formation
  • Enhanced protection against rust and bearing corrosion
  • Improved resistance to viscosity and thermal breakdown
  • Outstanding protection for newer low-emission diesel engines
  • Improved resistance to oxidation and protection against engine wear.

Environment-friendly: Ecoterra Hydraulic Oil

The Phillips 66 Ecoterra Hydraulic Oil is a zinc-free anti-wear hydraulic oil designed for use in industrial and mobile equipment operating in environmentally sensitive areas (ESA). It is formulated to reduce the environmental impact of an oil leak and oil spill.

When working in areas where soil and water contamination is likely to occur, it is recommended to use Ecoterra Hydraulic Oil in place of the regular zinc-containing products. Ecottera Hydraulic Oil is designed to meet the requirements of all major hydraulic pump manufacturers.

This Phillips 66 product may be used in hydraulic equipment used in ESAs, amusement parks and zoos. It can also be applied to hydraulic jacks, equipment in machine shops, oil drilling rigs, offshore platforms, service station lifts, electric motor bearings, and chain drives.

Phillips 66 Ecottera Hydraulic Oil offers the following features and benefits:

  • zinc-free and does not contain heavy metals
  • rust and corrosion protection
  • excellent thermal stability and resistance to oxidation.
  • resistance to foaming
  • a less expensive alternative to synthetic biodegradable hydraulic fluid

With the help of countless studies and research, engineers have been able to come up with a wide variety of fuel products that can help improve the performance of modern engines, decrease fuel consumption and emission of harmful wastes to the environment.

Just because better products are available, it does not mean that you have to use them for your vehicle or equipment. Innovations like these two products will continue to appear in the market to serve the increasing demand for better products that can help improve vehicle performance and avoid causing harm to the environment. To make sure that you are using the right product for your vehicle/equipment. Always check the manufacturer’s recommendation on the user’s manual or consult with professionals.
