DIOL™ 40 and 20W40

Mobil commercial-vehicle-lube , Canada

Railroad Crankcase Oils

Product Description

DIOL™ series oils are premium heavy-duty crankcase lubricants for locomotive diesel engines. These products were developed to meet the stringent performance requirements of Tier 4 locomotives from Progress Rail (EMD engines) and GE Transportation. Older locomotive engines will also benefit from using the DIOL series. The additive system provides excellent engine protection, enhanced oxidation performance, improved oil consumption control, enhanced Alkalinity / TBN retention, and oil drain interval extension capability compared with LMOA generation 6 oils such as our former Diol 9 RD series.


Features and Benefits

• Zinc Free - Excellent Silver Bearing Corrosion Protection

• Enhanced Oxidation, Sludge-Soot Handling and Viscosity Control

• Excellent Deposit, Corrosion and Wear Control

• Formulated for use with low sulfur and ultra-low sulfur diesel fuels

• Chlorine Free



DIOL 40 and 20W-40 oils are formulated to an LMOA Generation 7 quality level with formal approvals from GE transportation and Progress Rail diesel locomotives. The DIOL product line incorporates a field proven additive technology that offers enhanced oxidation performance and wear inhibitors. This addresses the deleterious effects of lower oil consumption and engine modifications in the Tier 4 locomotive engines, while being backward compatible with older engine technologies (Tier III and lower). The DIOL series offers excellent Alkalinity / TBN retention, oxidation and thermal stability, and acid control.
