To cater for the ever conscious of the needs of motorists, the Caltex™ brand has reformulated its signature additive package with the addition of a new Clean & Glide technology™.
The Clean & Glide Technology cleans and protects your engine’s internal metal surfaces. This will help in reducing friction resulting to less wear and tear. It delivers enhanced engine protection, improved fuel economy and maximized power with continued use over time.
Tests in the laboratory up to 600,000km of real world fleet tests ensured that the final formula provides optimum results for the everyday motorist. Tests included High Frequency Reciprocating Rig (HFRR) laboratory test.
It was proven that Caltex’s new formulation with Clean & Glide technology was able to reduce metal wear and friction by an average of 38 percent and 41 percent respectively using gasoline from around Asia Pacific and South Africa. This is important because Caltex with Techron® is formulated to instantly reduce friction in the upper cylinder area of your engine. With continued use, Clean & Glide technology will begin to build–up in your car’s crankcase lubricant to replenish friction modifiers that are consumed during normal operation. Separate laboratory tests simulating this build-up of Techron® in the lubricant demonstrated the effectiveness of Clean & Glide technology™ to improve fuel efficiency by up to 3 percent, when compared to the previous formulation.
“The addition of our new Clean & Glide technology™stays true to the evolving nature of our Techron® fuel offering. Our products are continuously being improved in anticipation of future engine technology and local market needs. For motorists, a quick Caltex stop now delivers gasoline grades that help treat their respective cars right, providing additional benefits without compromise,” said Peter Morris, country chair of Chevron Philippines, Inc. (CPI), marketer of the Caltex brand of fuels and lubricants.
He added that the new 5-star fuel is a further testament of the brand’s desire to provide the best possible fuel for motorists. “We are confident that our best gasoline yet meets expectations and have enlisted engineering expert Grant Imahara, formerly of Discovery’s Mythbusters series, to creatively demonstrate the benefits of Clean & Glide technology which will be showcased on television soon.”
From July 1, the new and improved Techron with Clean & Glide Technology will be available across all gasoline grades at Caltex service stations.
Fuel up with the Caltex Platinum with Techron®, with 50 percent more active ingredients of Clean & Glide technology™, to gain the benefits of a more efficient engine more quickly.
