Caltex Fuel Receives Near-Pristine Clean Rating in Borescope Test (with VIDEO)
Caltex with Techron got an almost perfect average score when it comes to the cleaning engine intake valves.
Greg Engeler, Chevron’s Product Engineering Manager for Asia Pacific, spearheaded the borescope test held at Caltex Merville in Paranaque City.
The test results, revealed last December, showed that vehicles which regularly use Caltex with Techron have cleaner engine intake valves. Vehicles that used Caltex with Techron, equipped with Clean & Glide Technology, achieved an average score of 9.7 out of 10 across all four Asian markets, surpassing the average 8.9 score of vehicles using lower-quality fuel.
Meanwhile, vehicles in the Philippines using lower-quality fuels recorded valve readings of as low as 5. 0 rating. The vehicles selected represent a cross-section of the market fleet to reveal an unbiased and true state of local passenger cars.
The engines were graded using Co-operative Research Council (CRC) Intake Valve Deposit (IVD) rating system wherein 10 is the pristine, brand new condition.
The borescope test demonstrates Caltex’s commitment to cleaner engine, while staying true to the evolving nature of Techron in anticipation of future engine technology and local market needs. All grades of Caltex gasoline contain Techron, a fuel additive package backed up with over 30 years of research and development, which has a polyetheramine component designed to clean up fuel system deposits and prevent them from reforming.
