The American Petroleum Institute, API, has approved the development of a new heavyduty diesel engine oil performance category, PC11. Acting on a request from the Engine Manufacturers Association the API has given the green light for category development. The EMA cited four reasons why a new category is needed: 1)Engine technology has changed to meet emissions mandates and fuel economy standards, and there's greater use of renewable fuels. 2) Hardware designs have changed since the current category, API CJ4, was commercialized five years ago. 3) By the time the new heavyduty oils debut, it will have been 10 years between categories. EMA asked that PC11 oils be launched in the market by January 2016. 4) Many engine tests for CJ4 are becoming obsolete and their hardware unavailable.
