New Exol engine oil for Ford EcoBoost engines

Exol Lubricants has become one of the first lubricant manufacturers to produce a new engine oil specially formulated for the latest Ford EcoBoost engines.

The Optima Vimax F 5W-20 is a fully-synthetic engine oil produced using the highest quality synthetic base stocks, which together with market leading additive chemistry meets the very latest and previous Ford fuel-efficient EcoBoost petrol engine specifications and is also suitable for the majority of Ford petrol vehicles produced in the past four years.

The new oil provides significant fuel saving benefits to the motorist due to its low viscosity and low friction technology, while also ensuring high engine protection and component durability.

There are currently three EcoBoost engines, 1.0ltr, 1.6ltr and 2.0ltr, fitted across a range of Ford vehicles including Focus, Fiesta and Mondeo.

Ford will produce more than 1.3million low-CO2 EcoBoost engines for European vehicles by 2015, with more than 800,000 expected to be the 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine.

In its first full month of sales across Europe, more than 4700 customers ordered a Focus 1.0ltr EcoBoost, accounting for nearly a quarter of all Focus cars ordered in Ford’s 19 traditional European markets.

Steve Dunn, Exol sales director, said “The new Optima Vimax F 5W-20 engine oil underlines our commitment – and flexibility as an independent company – to be one of the first to market with superior quality lubricants for the very latest engine specific applications.”

The new oil is available now in bulk road tanker deliveries, intermediate bulk containers (IBCs), 205 litre barrels and 25litre drums.
