Heavy Duty Diesel Engine Oils

Forsythe Lubrication’s line of premium performance multi-grade diesel engine oils delivers industry leading protection against increased wear which can lead to lower productivity and impaired fuel economy.

Forsythe HDEO’s are formulated to exceed API CK-4 specifications and are suitable for use in the latest 2017 EPA compliant low emission engines which employ advanced exhaust after treatment devices such as Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF) with or without Diesel Oxidation Catalysts (DOC), increased rates of Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) and Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR). Forsythe heavy duty engine oils are suitable for use in engines powered by both ultra low and low sulphur diesel fuel.

Forsythe HDEO’s are back serviceable and carries the API service CJ-4, CI-4 Plus, CI-4, and CH-4 licenses required by pre-’10 diesel engines.
