Chevron Lubricants Lanka PLC (CLLP), in a groundbreaking move within the Sri Lankan lubricant industry, is proud to announce that its proprietary product, Caltex Havoline has achieved a significant milestone by concluding a 10,000 kilometers mileage trial with its Pro DS Fully Synthetic Eco series. This proof of performance, recently announced to the public at a press conference, establishes the claim of completing 10,000 kilometers using a single oil drain is achievable in Sri Lanka under local environmental conditions. This achievement reinforces Chevron’s commitment to continuous innovation and offering the highest standards of engine lubricants in the passenger motor car oil (PCMO) segment to Sri Lankans. 

The extensive proof of performance serves as a testament to Caltex Havoline’s assurance to addressing the unique demands of consumers. The Pro DS Fully Synthetic Eco series by Caltex Havoline, tailored for Internal Combustion Engines (ICE) and Hybrid passenger cars, has undergone rigorous testing to validate the 10,000km Extended Drain Interval (EDI) claim.
