Broad-Range Synthetic Diesel Engine Oil Pays for Itself with All-Weather Performance, Wear Protection and Fuel Economy

Monolec Ultra® Syn Heavy Duty Engine Oil (8854) is a broad-range multiviscosity synthetic oil for diesel engines that delivers outstanding year-round performance, wear protection, fuel efficiency and extended drains. With its synthetic base oil and exclusive additive package, this SAE 5W-40 formulation reliably lubricates diesel engines, even in low-temperature conditions, without the shear stability and viscosity problems of conventional diesel engine oils. Its high viscosity index indicates less change in viscosity over a broad operating temperature range.

One of the primary advantages of 5W-40 vs. 15W-40 engine oil is better fuel economy. In a controlled lab setting, GM 6.5L dyno testing showed a 1.5-1.6% fuel economy improvement. In addition, low-viscosity or broad-range oils are preferred for low-temperature conditions because of their ability to achieve flow quickly during cold startups. Most engine wear occurs within the first two to five minutes of starting. However, conventional low-viscosity oils have not always provided adequate oil film at operating temperatures. This resulted in increased wear and made it difficult to obtain OEM approvals. The improved technology of Monolec 8854 has eliminated this problem, enabling it to achieve flow quickly in cold weather and maintain viscosity at operating temperatures. It also meets all major OEM approvals.

Monolec Ultra® Syn Heavy Duty Engine Oil lubricates important parts faster, prevents wear during operation, and decreases fuel consumption – making it the smart choice for on- and off-road fleet managers and owner operators who want better fuel economy, reliable lowtemperature performance, or a combination of both.

Proprietary Additive

LE’s proprietary additives are used exclusively in LE lubricants. Monolec Ultra® Syn Heavy Duty Engine Oil contains Monolec.

Monolec® wear-reducing additivecreates a single molecularlubricating film on metal surfaces, vastly increasing oil film strength without affecting clearances. An invaluable component in LE’s engine oils, industrial oils and many of its other lubricants, Monolec allows opposing surfaces to slide by one another, greatly reducingfriction, heat and wear.
