Optimum Oils – Driving the customer experience with Q8 Formula Truck 8600 10W40

At Optimum Oils, the customer is at the heart of everything we do. We launched Q8 Formula Truck 8600 10W40 at Album conference 2016 and we’re back to report that our customers are more than satisfied.

The Q8 Formula Truck range is a ground-breaking advancement in engine oil technology allowing product rationalisation for the mixed fleet operator covering Euro VI and beyond. Find out more about Q8 Formula Truck 8600 10W40 and join the major operators who have taken the product on board.

As vehicle engine technology has progressed up to and including Euro VI, engine oil specification and OEM requirements have changed dramatically. Before Q8 Formula Truck, mixed fleet operators following OEM requirements for Euro VI Engine Oils required more than one engine oil product to cover their fleet. Not any more.

Q8 Formula Truck 8600 10W40 is a synthetic, ultra-high performance heavy duty diesel engine oil designed for the latest Euro VI engines however fully backwards compatible with Euro IV & V. With this market-leading lubricant, savvy operators can rationalise their lubricant range to one engine oil across the fleet.  The product also extends the life of your vehicles by providing advanced protection against wear and oxidation. You’ll further cut your maintenance costs with longer oil drain intervals.

The product is suitable for engines with a diesel particulate filter or catalytic after treatment system such as SCR; operate on low sulphur diesel fuel of 50 ppm or less; and in severe heavy duty conditions. It is also best in-class compatibility with bio fuel, giving it excellent starting properties in the coldest weather.

Q8 Formula Truck 8600 10W40 has specifically been developed for ACEA E4/E6/E7/E9 and API CJ-4 covering a wide range of OEM specifications for heavy duty fleets, with full OEM approvals including but not limited to;

Cummins                          CES20081

MAN                                  M3477/M327-1

Mercedes Benz                MB228.51

Scania                                LA

Volvo                                 VDS-3 / VDS-4


The addition of Q8 Formula Truck 8600 10W40 to the Optimum Oils product portfolio is another example of our commitment to innovative and high quality product solutions that meet and frequently exceed our customers’ needs.


Antifreeze & Summer Coolant

Optimum can further supplement their offer to the Euro VI mixed fleet operator with the inclusion of CalPlus high performance antifreeze & coolant.

Designed for mixed fleet applications including Euro VI meeting requirement of all major OEM’s CalPlus is the very latest in ‘low-brid’ coolant technology developed to meet specific demands of Euro VI and particular OEMs by combining organic and silicate technology.

CalPlus is an ethylene glycol-based fluid that provides maintenance-free protection against freezing, boiling and corrosion.

CalPlus offers many benefits to the operator including;

  • Long life protection; synergistic effect by a combination of organic inhibitors
  • Uniform and homogenous protective layer; engineered inhibitor package
  • No gel formation or drop out; performant silicate stabiliser
  • Environmentally friendly; free of borate, nitrite, amines and phosphates
