RUBIA OPTIMA 1500 5W-40 is developed for the newest North American on-road diesel engines and suitable for existing diesel engines due to its backwards compatibility with previous API service categories. With its "low-SAPS" (low sulphated ash, phosphorus and sulphur) technology, TOTAL RUBIA OPTIMA 1500 5W-40 protects diesel engines equipped with post-treatment systems such as diesel particulate filters (DPFs).
