DFX is a premium mineral, SAE 15W-40, FULL ZINC, mid ash, diesel engine oil made from pure hydrocracked base oils and an advanced anti-wear additive system for complete engine protection.
DFX exceeds the requirements of API CI-4 PLUS/SL and ACEA E7 as well as many other manufacturer’s specifications.
DFX is designed for use in 4, 6 & 8+ cylinder multi cam, naturally aspirated, supercharged, turbocharged common rail & direct injection diesel engines. It is designed predominantly for use in four stroke heavy duty diesel engines. It can be used in both on and off-highway applications, high speed and some medium speed diesel engines used in marine environments as well as for generator sets and agricultural equipment.
DFX is recommended for use in vehicles where SAE 15W-40 or SAE 20W-40 engine oils were originally recommended by the manufacturer.
DFX can be used in diesel engines where ACEA E7 or where API CI-4 Plus is recommended in the owner’s hand book. It can also be used where ACEA A3/B3 is recommended in model years prior to 2017 and where previous API specifications API CI-4, CH-4, CG-4 or CF-4 is specified. It is suitable for use in many mixed fleets with older Petrol and LPG powered vehicles requiring an engine oil meeting API SL (2001-2004), API SJ (1998-2000), API SH (1994-1997) or API SG (1989-1993).
DFX is NOT recommended for use in diesels fitted with a DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) that require an ACEA “C” grade Low-Mid SAPS (Sulphated Ash, Phosphorus & Sulphur) engine oil. We recommend checking the recommendation guide for the correct grade and specification.
DFX is suitable for use in diesel engines in passenger cars, 4WD’s, light & heavy duty commercial engines in trucks, tractors, agricultural & earthmoving equipment as well as industrial equipment such as fork lifts & stationary engines. It is suitable for use with Diesel & Petrol/E10/LPG (Dual Fuel). It is also suitable for use in petrol and LPG engines as a mixed fleet oil and can be used in motorcycles with wet clutches.
NOTE: when changing oil, Penrite recommend using Penrite Engine Flush, a fast acting, solvent free, engine cleaning formulation that removes engine deposits, sludge and contaminants with the oil service drain. It contains added zinc for engine wear protection and its fast acting formulation works in 10 minutes.
