Cummins, Valvoline Premium Blue extend oil drain intervals by 10,000 miles



Valvoline and Cummins Inc. have announced that Valvoline Premium Blue Heavy Duty Engine Oil is proven to extend oil drain intervals for an additional 10,000 miles, enabling a new maximum ODI of 60,000 miles in the 2017 Cummins X15 engines, compared to other API CK-4 engine oils.

The results were proven through extensive collaborative development efforts, covering millions of miles of real-world truck testing, the company explained. In an analysis of cost savings potential, comparing the use of conventional oil and synthetic blend CK-4 oils in the Cummins X15 engine, Valvoline Premium Blue 15W-40 was proven to save upwards of $20,000 in annual oil maintenance cost and productivity savings for a 100-truck fleet, the company shared.
