Vauxhall Introduces GM's dexos2 Engine Oil
“Boasting improved engine cleaning properties, better protection against the build up of harmful deposits and compatible with petrol, diesel and alternatively fuelled engines, dexos2 is a complete engine lubricant product,” stated the press release.
GM first developed the concept of a global oil specification in 2006, with the first prototype being created in 2007. Now, the company has released the dexos2, which is currently unique on the UK market.
“Three years of further research and development have resulted in an engine oil which prolongs the life and maintains the efficiency of emission reduction systems in both diesel- and petrol-powered automobiles. dexos2 belongs to the so-called Mid-SAPS lubricants (lowered sulphated ash, phosphorous and sulphur content) and made of a proprietary blend of high-performance base oil stocks and state-of-the-art additives fully compatible with the latest diesel particulate filters (DPF) and gasoline catalytic converters (CAT),” stated the press release.
“Using the correct grade of high quality oil is critically important for modern engines and dexos2 has been developed to provide the perfect blend for Vauxhall vehicles. Its exceptional qualities not only benefit the engine but also the owner through reduced fuel consumption and the environment as it helps cut vehicle emissions,” said Vauxhall’s Clifford Walpole.
