ENGINE OIL REMOVED FROM SALE FOLLOWING INVESTIGATION


Granville Oil and Chemicals has removed 5W30 Hypalube Evo from sale, following an investigation by VLS (Verification of Lubricant Specifications).

A complaint was received in November 2017 concerning the ability of the product to meet its own technical specifications and the claims it made regarding OEM specifications. In particular, it was alleged that the product did not meet its own stated NOACK volatility measure and that its claims for OEM specifications of VW 504.00/507.00, PSA B71 2290 and GM LL–A/B–025 were unfeasible as no additive package was available at the time to meet those requirements.

eet the stated NOACK volatility measure. The VLS technical panel also raised questions about the claims relating to PSA B71 2290 and GM LL-A/B-025.

Granville Oil & Chemicals Ltd ‘cooperated fully’ with the investigation and undertook its own internal investigation, with the result that the product was discontinued effective 30th June 2018.

Thanking Granville for its cooperation in the investigation, David Wright, Secretary of VLS and Chairman of UKLA added: “This case is a perfect example of VLS performing its vital role to maintain standards in the industry and ensure an open and transparent market. Customers must be able to have confidence that the products they purchase really can deliver what is claimed.”
