It is widely accepted that stop/start, urban driving conditions are the most arduous on road going vehicles, including the oils used to lubricate them. It is significantly more severe than long distance, steady speed driving conditions. With increasingly stringent emissions regulations such as EU EURO VI, where all three common types of exhaust after-treatment devices are necessary (EGR, SCR & DPF), the ongoing quest for low CO2 figures and high fuel economy resulting in low viscosity engine oils; it really does take a special series of products to keep these vehicles on the road and allowing you to meet your customers' expectations.
We realised that standard automotive or commercial lubricants are not the ideal solution for protecting LCV engines, so we've specially engineered a series of bespoke products VAN-GUARD® to cover the LCV market. They are OEM specific and approved products, meaning they can be used throughout the whole life of your vehicles, including during the warranty period.
