Champion Brands has announced it now offers API FA-4 diesel engine oils to fleets and private label customers for some of the newer engines currently in the market from Cummins, Detroit Diesel, Navistar, and more.
Now available to fleets are 275-gallon totes of Ultra-Fleet API FA-4 10W30 Diesel Engine Oil -Part #4162. When OEMs recommend this new oil specification, it can make a real difference to a fleet’s bottom line by improving the engine’s fuel efficiency. Fleets should inquire about pricing to [email protected].
Private label customers can order their size preference from packaged quarts, gallons, 2.5 gallons, 5-gallon pails, 55-gallon drums, or 275-gallon totes. Champion will soon be offering a second viscosity of Ultra-Fleet API FA-4 5W30 Diesel Engine Oil. In time, more and more OEMs will be requiring this type of diesel engine oil.

API Service Category FA-4 describes certain XW-30 diesel engine oils specifically formulated for use in select high-speed four-stroke cycle diesel engines designed to meet 2017 model year on-highway greenhouse gas (GHG) emission standards.
These oils are formulated for use in on-highway applications with diesel fuel sulfur content up to 15 ppm (0.0015% by weight). Refer to individual engine manufacturer recommendations regarding compatibility with API FA-4 diesel engine oils. These oils are blended to a high temperature high shear (HTHS) viscosity range of 2.9cP–3.2cP to assist in reducing GHG emissions.
These oils are especially effective at sustaining emission control system durability where particulate filters and other advanced aftertreatment systems are used. API FA-4 diesel engine oils are designed to provide enhanced protection against oil oxidation, viscosity loss due to shear, and oil aeration as well as protection against catalyst poisoning, particulate filter blocking, engine wear, piston deposits, degradation of low- and high-temperature properties, and soot-related viscosity increase.
API FA-4 diesel engine oils are not interchangeable or backward compatible with API CK-4, CJ-4, CI-4 with CI-4 PLUS, CI-4, and CH-4 oils. API FA-4 diesel engine oils are not recommended for use with fuels having greater than 15 ppm sulfur. For fuels with sulfur content greater than 15 ppm, refer to engine manufacturer recommendations.
