NEW MONOLEC ULTRA SYN HEAVY DUTY ENGINE OIL
8854 MONOLEC ULTRA SYN HEAVY DUTY ENGINE OIL
Ultra Syn Heavy Duty Engine Oil (8854) is a broad
range multi-viscosity synthetic oil for diesel
engines that delivers outstanding year-round
performance, wear protection, fuel efficiency and
extended drains. With its synthetic base oil and
exclusive additive package, this SAE 5W-40
formulation reliably lubricates diesel engines, even
in low-temperature conditions, without the shear
stability and viscosity problems of conventional
diesel engine oils.
Most engine wear occurs within the first two to five
minutes of starting. Conventional low-viscosity oils
have not always provided an adequate oil film at low
operating temperatures. This resulted in increased
wear and made it difficult to obtain OEM approvals.
The improved technology of Monolec 8854 has
eliminated this problem, enabling it to achieve
quick flow in cold weather and maintain viscosity at
operating temperatures. It also meets all major OEM
approvals. Benefits of 8854 Monolec Ultra Syn Heavy
Duty Engine Oil include:
- All-Weather Performance: 8854
Monolec's high viscosity index allows for less
change in viscosity over a broad operating
temperature range which achieves oil flow during
cold start-ups and eliminates need for overnight
auxiliary heaters, unless under extremely cold
- Cost Reductions: 8854 Monolec
decreases fuel consumption by 1-3% over SAE 15W-40
oils, and its premium additive package extends
drains for long service life, when combined with oil
- OEM & Industry Approvals:
Authorized OEM approvals safeguard engine
warranties. 8854 Monolec provides necessary
protection for modern low-emission engines as per

Are All Engine Oils Created Equal?
When you ask a truck
driver, "Are all diesel engines the same?",
prepare a hot pot of coffee because you will be
sitting down for a while. We know that differences
exist between engines and cars' overall builds, but
there are also significant differences between the
various engine oils being marketed today. How do you
know, as a consumer, which engine oil is the best
for your car?
There are several questions a consumer should ask in
order to understand which engine oil is best for
- If a particular engine oil claims to extend drain
intervals, will it protect or even extend the engine
life as well?
- What is the difference between petroleum based
oils and synthetic oils?

8800 Monolec Ultra Engine Oil (15W40)
"Saved at least two rebuilds,
at approximately $15,000 each"
Inc is an independent trucking company owned by Bill
Adamson. He does lots of over the road hauling in
his 1996 Freightliner truck, powered by a 435-E
series Caterpillar engine. Bill was looking to
extend oil drain intervals, reduce downtime and to
keep the truck on the road regardless of weather
conditions. His LE representative recommended 8800
Monolec, which provides all season performance. 8800
Monolec is made from select paraffinic base oil and
contains MONOLEC, LE's exclusive wear reducing
additive. At the beginning, the drain interval was
kept at 32,000 miles and at times he would go as
long as 40,000 miles between drains. The first time
his engine was overhauled was after 848,000 miles.
The camshaft was replaced because of wear on one of
the lobes. However, the crankshaft was reused and
new bearings were put in even though there was no
wear on the main bearing. Bill is very happy with LE
products and will not use anything else. Bill
recommends LE to other drivers all the time.
