Newly Re-branded Vehicular Natural Gas Engine Oils


Effective November 1, 2012, Phillips 66 Lubricants is launching its newly re-branded heavy duty vehicular natural gas engine oils, tri-branded Guardol® NG and Kendall Super-D® NG, for compressed natural gas (CNG) or liquefied natural gas (LNG) powered heavy duty trucks. Both products are relpacements for 76 Triton® VGEO Plus, which is being discontinued, but the formulation has remained unchanged.

Lubricants for natural gas-fired engines must provide enhanced wear protection to protect against a variety of different conditions. Tri-branded Guardol NG and Kendall Super-D NG exceed these requirements and offer the following benefits:

  • Temperature control (as natural gas burns hotter)
  • Improved oxidation control
  • Balanced ash content (to prevent valve stem deposits and reduce valve seat recession)
  • Exhaust after treatment protection
  • Shear stability
  • Superior protection against scuffing, wear, rust and corrosion
  • Outstanding foam, aeration and nitration resistance
  • Protection against sludge and varnish formation

These lubricants will be available November 1 for order entry for bulk and drum product shipments. Gallon jug availability will follow in approximately 30-60 days.
