Lubricating Oil Requirements

In general, lubricating oil selection for Detroit™ engines is based on viscosity grade and service category as defined by industry standards and is displayed in the API symbol shown in the following section. Oils identified by this system and licensed by API provide adequate service in most applications. In 2002, Detroit™ initiated additional criteria to these requirements through the use of Detroit Fluids Specifications.

Note: For 2-cycle and all Off-Highway engine lubricating oil, fuel, and coolant requirements, refer to MTU Technical Publication, Fluids and Lubricants, Specification Bulletin, A001061/35E (or most recent). This bulletin is available from authorized MTU distributors.
