Rubia Optima range from Total Canada

Total Canada has introduced a new Rubia Optima range designed for heavy-duty engines that comply with the new categories defined by the American Petroleum Institute (API) which will take effect as early as December 2016.

API CJ-4 service category that was developed nearly a decade ago will be replaced by two new categories, API CK-4 and API FA-4 to meet the new standards regarding greenhouse gas emission limits. Cleaner and more fuel-efficient diesel engines are mandatory and require new oils. With the new range, Total supports its partners by offering technologically advanced lubricants.

The Rubia Optima range is made to limit carbon dioxide emissions while improving the engine’s fuel consumption and allowing the longest oil drain intervals authorized by manufacturers.
