For the Long Haul

Valvoline™ Premium Blue™ is “The Only One”™ exclusively endorsed and recommended by Cummins with a unique 10,000 mile drain extension in Cummins X15 engines enabling up to 60,000 miles when average fuel efficiency is 6.5 mpg or higher.

It’s designed to provide performance and protection in modern, emissions treatment equipped diesel engines, including those with Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR), Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF), and other modern diesel engine technology.

When comparing Valvoline PB 8600 ES 15W-40 performance to major competitor oils in the Cummins X15 Engine, Valvoline PB 8600 ES 15W-40 proved to save upwards of $20,000 in annual oil maintenance cost for a 100-truck fleet.*

“The strong partnership between Cummins and Valvoline leverages our technical expertise to continuously meet the needs of our mutual customers. I am pleased we are able to offer the confidence our products provide to help them succeed over the long haul.”
