It is recommended for 2-cycle and 4-cycle diesel engines and similar diesel engines that are used either as main or auxiliary engines. It can also be used in stationary engines when you need the performance of API CF and API CD rated oils. This oil is also available in bulk. If you're looking for multigrade oil, see our XR SAE 20W-40 viscosity grade oil.
