Perkins offers a new range of service and support solutions to support engines operating across North America. To address customer’s needs in the USA, Canada and Mexico, it has launched Perkins Diesel Engine Oil (DEO), the only oil formulated specifically for the long operating life and performance of Perkins engines. This engine oil is recommended for use in Perkins U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final and below engines and is comprised of a mix of additives, designed specifically to prevent the build-up of conditions that can impair the oil performance, reduce operating life, and potentially damage engine components.
“We’ve developed Perkins Engine Oil to provide end users with unbeatable protection for their engine,” said Michael Wright, general manager – aftermarket. “Our oil is compatible with Tier 4 Final and below engines, and has been proven to deliver unrivalled engine performance. The oil comes in 20 and 208 litre quantities and is being made available through the Perkins network of distributors."
Made up of three base oils that deliver the right viscosity across the working temperature ranges, Perkins DEO includes a combination of 12 beneficial additives, such as:

Wright said: “We now offer better availability than ever before, including support for previous engine generations and even competitor brands. With as-new engine performance, genuine Perkins parts and factory-standard warranties, we can help customers extend the residual worth of their machine when they decide it’s time to sell.”

Customer benefits include comprehensive coverage of up to 100% of engine components, access to Perkins certified technicians, genuine parts rated and tested specifically for the engine, and coverage the same as the Perkins standard warranty.
