Speaking at the launch conducted today at Meikles Hotel in Harare, Engen Zimbabwe managing director, Cremion Mapfumba, said the product was partly as a result of the company’s commitment to a cleaner environment.
“Dieselube 700 Super has a low evaporation rate thus reduces engine emissions,” said Mapfumba.
Mapfumba said a combined use of the oil with the low sulphur Engen Diesel 50, would go a long way towards protecting the environment.
According to Mapfumba, Engen was the first company in the country to offer the environmentally friendly products on a significant scale.
Diesel 50, like Dieselube 700 Super has lower exhaust emissions and soot formation making it more environmentally friendly.
Dieselube 700, Mapfumba said, is a technologically advanced high performance multi-grade lubricant designed for the unique conditions of Southern Africa.
It has proven benefits for all major American, European and Japanese engines burning high or low sulphur diesel.
He said the developments were in line with Engen’s objectives to be the oil company of choice in Sub-Saharan Africa and the Indian Ocean Islands by 2016.
