  • 1940

    Introduction of the new and improved Havoline® Motor Oil, a specially refined motor oil with additives to inhibit oxidation and protect against engine rust.

  • 1950

    New multigrade, all-weather Havoline® Special SAE 10W-30 was proven to consistently outperform all 5 leading competitive brands in providing superior engine protection under all driving conditions.

  • 1970

    Introduced Havoline® Supreme SAE 10W-40 which contained a special friction additive to help lower engine friction and maximize fuel efficiency.

  • 1990

    Havoline® Formula 3 became the top-selling motor oil among major companies and was distributed in more than 100 countries.

  • 2000

    Introduced Havoline® with Deposit Shield®. An advanced formulation that builds your engine’s resilience by protecting it from harmful deposits, powering improved engine performance and maximizing fuel economy.

FAQs

API SP is the latest engine oil standard issued by the American Petroleum Institute, a trade association that represents the natural gas and oil industry segments. Coming 10 years after its predecessor, the latest industry standard update allows modern engines to maximize efficacy while enhancing protection for key components.

On the other hand, GF-6 is the new industry standard for ILSAC grade passenger car motor oils. GF-6 motor oils will facilitate greater fuel economy while improving wear and deposit control, compared to their GF-5 counterparts.

These new motor oils will protect against timing chain wear and LSPI, a potentially catastrophic phenomena that occurs in GDI (gasoline direct injection) engines. Furthermore, consumers will benefit from new Havoline GF-6 and API SP oils in the areas of fuel economy retention, wear, and LSPI protection, with unprecedented sludge and deposit control.

API SP is backward-compatible with previous API categories, including API SN PLUS, SN, SM, SL or SJ. Meanwhile, ILSAC GF-6A is backward-compatible with GF-5, and ILSAC GF-6B is not backward-compatible unless specified by the OEM.

The new and improved Caltex Havoline ECO series offers multiple benefits to drivers and mechanics including all-around protection, improved fuel economy, and optimum engine performance.

These enable drivers and mechanics to capitalize on their full engine potential, deliver their services efficiently, reduce maintenance costs, and minimize equipment downtime. The following are the three key benefits of the reformulated range:

 

    • Effective Sludge Control: Synthetic base fluids and proprietary additive systems with Deposit Shield Technology provide effective protection against sludge, varnish, and deposit buildup to keep modern engines running cleaner and stronger.
    • Excellent Engine Protection: The latest Caltex Havoline ECO series ensures improved timing chain wear protection, LSPI mitigation, durability of emissions systems, protection from sludge, cam wear protection, piston cleanliness, and oxidation control. These provide maximum protection and longer life for high performance engines under severe operating conditions.
    • Delivers fuel economy performance: Specially tailored viscosity features and effective friction modifier minimize internal engine friction loss for maximum fuel economy.
