Total South Africa unveiled its new, technologically advanced Total Rubia Optima 1100, 15W-40 heavy-duty engine oil (HDEO) last week at the Johannesburg Automechanika trade fair.
“We are delighted to launch the new Rubia Optima 1100, 15W-40 which meets and exceeds the latest API CK-4 specification.
“In doing so, Total South Africa becomes one of the first lubricants companies to introduce this new specification for the South African market,” said Kamil de Villiers, Total South Africa Lubricants Manager.
De Villiers added that this new API CK-4 specification surpasses the API CJ-4 service category which was initially developed over 10 years ago and is backwards compatible. Total Rubia Optima provides better engine protection and an unparalleled level of performance.
“It will help limit carbon dioxide emissions while maintaining the engine clean and its exceptional oxidation resistance allow longer oil drain intervals in line with manufacturer’s recommendations.
“Total’s Rubia Optima range is the direct result of the Total Group’s continued commitment and investment in research and development.
“The launch of this product also reconfirms Total’s commitment to introducing the latest high-performance products for the South African market,” de Villiers concludes.
