Cummins CES 20087

Cummins CES 20087 is a lower Sulphated Ash, Phosphorus and Sulfur (SAPS) lubricant specification designed for use in high performance medium- and heavy-duty diesel engines where advanced aftertreatment systems such as Diesel Particulate Filters (DPFs) are fitted. With a HTHS viscosity of 2.9-3.2cP, these lubricants are designed to provide enhanced fuel economy in select engine models including newer on-highway X12 and X15 on-highway engines. Cummins engines that require this lubricant specification would typically align with Euro VI emissions standards in Europe and EPA GHG 2016 in North America.

Cummins CES 20087 lubricants are typically SAE 10W-30 or 5W-30 viscosity grade and based on API Group II and/or API Group III base oils.
