New "Expert Knowledge" Section to Address Key Market Issues, Including Fuel
Economy, Emissions and the Next Proposed Oil Category (PC-11)
SAN RAMON, Calif.--(Business Wire)--
Chevron Products Company, a Chevron U.S.A. Inc. division, maker of the Delo®
brand of technologically advanced engine oils, lubricants and coolants, today
announced the company has expanded its commitment to customer and market
education by introducing an upgraded portion of its ChevronDelo.com website. The
newly expanded "Expert Knowledge" section will offer video and written material
to address key market issues of interest to both its on- and off-highways
customers. Some of the topics to be addressed on the site include Fuel Economy,
Emissions Regulations and PC-11 - the new diesel engine oil category under
development, slated for introduction in 2016. 

"We currently hold over 250 customer-focused educational events per year," said
Jim Gambill, Delo commercial and industrial brand manager, Chevron Lubricants.
"While we will continue to meet with customers face-to-face, we see a clear
value in bringing some of this content online. At Chevron, we have always
believed that to be a true business partner, you must share your market
expertise as well as provide customers with exceptional products. The updated
ChevronDelo.com site is just one way we continue to help our customers be
successful in their businesses." 

The site will be updated on a regular basis and will include insight from
Chevron subject matter experts on best practices and important topics. Jim
McGeehan, Chevron`s global manager, heavy-duty diesel engine oil technology and
the chairman of the ASTM heavy-duty engine oil classification panel, which is
charged with setting limits and verifying testing for the development of API oil
classifications, will be a regular contributor to the site, providing updates on
the development of PC-11. 

A Legacy of Lubricant Education

Chevron has a long history of educating the lubrication industry, the markets it
serves and its customers about key technologies and issues. The now retired
Lubrication Magazine, which was first published by Texaco and then Chevron,
provided detailed technical insight, for over 95 years, into lubricant-related
topics ranging from oil category changes to bio-diesel to hydraulics and oil
analysis. 

Each year, the company works with its family of marketers to host Delo-branded
educational events around the country. These events tap into the market
expertise and product knowledge of both Chevron and its lubricant marketers to
help deliver bottom-line performance improvements to customers. Within the
agriculture community, Chevron has hosted countless educational events at
regional agriculture shows across the country to help these customers improve
their businesses, so they can continue to put food on plates around the country.


On July 29, 1999, Chevron introduced the Delo Truck, a rolling ambassador for
the Delo brand. Averaging over 40,000 miles a year, the truck has visited 49
states as well as Canada and Mexico. The current version of the Delo Truck has
19 learning stations - most with interactive displays. Visitors to the truck can
explore various topics, including maximizing drain intervals and interpreting
evolving OEM drain recommendations. 

In 2004, Chevron held its first Construction Symposium, which brings together
experts from top construction and mining companies to share their experiences
and perspectives on key trends, issues and products. The goal of the program is
to help develop creative practices for outstanding performance, profitability
and success in the challenging construction and mining markets. 

To further its educational efforts, in 2006, Chevron launched the Lubricants
University site, which provides its marketers with online access to a wealth of
training materials, courses and other lubricant-related educational content. 

"Sharing our knowledge with our customers is an integral part of the value
delivered by Chevron Lubricants and the Delo brand. Finding timely, new and
relevant ways to reach our audiences is a critical part of our ongoing success,"
said Gambill.
