Universal Lubricants announced that Cummins Inc. and Detroit Diesel Corp. have certified that ECO ULTRA CNG/LNG engine oil, SAE grade 15W-40, conforms to the performance specifications required for their natural gas engines.

These engines, which reduce emissions, improve fuel economy and decrease maintenance costs, require special, high-performance engine oils.

Cummins has certified that ECO ULTRA CNG/LNG conforms to CES 20074 engine oil specifications and is approved for use in the company’s powerful, high-speed natural gas engines.

Detroit Diesel has approved ECO ULTRA CNG/LNG for use in its Series 50G and 60G engines and certified that it meets DDC Power Guard Oil Specification 93K216.

ECO ULTRA CNG/LNG consists of up to 83% re-refined material and is one of the first of its kind on the market. Universal Lubricants says it relies on used oil as feedstock to its re-refinery that produces top quality Group II sustainable base oil while meeting OEM specs and Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) requirements.

“As a company dedicated to both high performance and environmental responsibility, we are pleased to provide a product that enhances the performance of CNG and LNG powered fleets,” says John Wesley, Universal Lubricants’ CEO. “To be recognized as meeting the extremely high standards set by these leaders in the natural gas market is an important milestone for our company.”

At the recent Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) in Las Vegas, Nev., Universal Lubricants won a packaging award for the new Flexpak for ECO ULTRA.
