Diol 11 RD 20W40

Railroad Crankcase Oils

DIOL™ 11 RD 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. Older locomotive engines will also benefit from using the DIOL 11 RD series. An Electro-Motive Diesel (EMD) and General Electric (GE) endorsed additive system provides excellent engine protection, enhanced oxidation performance, improved oil consumption control, and enhanced Alkalinity / TBN retention, and oil drain interval extension capability*.
