With diesels gaining even more popularity in the Philippines, Caltex Lubricants has introduced a new, synthetic oil for diesel-powered vehicles. Called the Delo Sports, it features ISOSYN technology which, Caltex says, is specifically designed for SUVs and pick-up trucks and offers long-term engine protection.

“Caltex Lubricants is very responsive to the market needs and this is why we have released Delo Sports in the country. With Delo Sports, motorists can now experience the full power and performance of their diesel engines in their everyday drive” said Jon Bronfman, Chevron Philippines Inc. Area Business Manager for Lubricants, Philippines and Vietnam.

Caltex explained ISOSYN technology as the combination of premium base oil along with high performance additives in the formulation. With that, the company says Delo Sports offers high-oxidation stability, excellent dispercancy and anti-wear characteristics. As a result, engine life is prolonged for more kilometers down the road. In addition, Delo Sports provides deposit control which is a must for turbodiesel engines that encounter high temperature during on or off-road driving.

Delo Sports is available in two formulations. The first is Delo Sports Fully Synthetic 5W-40 which is recommended for high-mileage and heavy duty applications. The second is Delo Sports Synthetic Blend 10W-30 which is specifically designed for the latest pick-ups and SUVs with common-rail injection that require API CI-4 grade oils.

In addition, Caltex has also kicked off a new promo called “Release the Power of X”. This is to commemorate the strengthening partnership of the lubricant brand and Handyman. The promo gives their customers the chance to win exclusive X-Men Promo Packs. Customers will get a free X-Men Apocalypse T-shirt for every purchase of Caltex promo packs. The promo packs will also serve as a raffle entry to win exclusive items or movie passes in four raffle draws. The prize for the grand draw is a brand new Yamaha FZ16 150 cc motorbike. Promo packs are available in Handyman and Caltex stations nationwide.
