    Enjoy the benefits of our new and improved formula

    Experience the same great cleaning performance that you’ve come to expect from Techron, and then expect a bit more.

    With a friction reducing additive designed to protect metal components and improve efficiency, our new and improved formula helps to deliver enhanced engine protection, maximised power and improved fuel economy, giving you a better journey, compared to our previous formula.



    Enhanced Engine Protection

    The Clean & Glide Technology™ in the new Techron® is designed to coat and protect metal surfaces. This helps to reduce friction and wear, keeping your engine clean to deliver optimum performance.

    The ability of the new Techron to protect metal surfaces was proven in the High Frequency Reciprocating Rig (HFRR) lubricity test. The HFRR lubricity test is a standard test for diesel, designed to determine its ability to protect metal parts in the fuel pumps that rely on diesel as a lubricant. The HFRR lubricity test was modified to safely test the lubricating properties of petrol.

    The new Techron with Clean & Glide Technology™ contains components, which are designed to coat and protect metal surfaces, reducing wear by up to 38%and friction by up to 41%2 compared to our previous formulation.

    Improved Fuel Economy

    Improved Fuel Economy


    Engines work best when they are clean. The new and improved Caltex with Techron® is proven to clean vital engine parts effectively, helping your engine burn fuel more efficiently, and making your journeys more economical for you.

    The benefits of our new Clean and Glide Technology™ were proven in Caltex’s internal laboratory tests. Laboratory tests simulating the build-up of Techron in the crankcase lubricant with continual use demonstrate the efficiency improvement built in to our new Clean & Glide Technology™. 

    In controlled laboratory tests simulating continual use, Clean & Glide Technology™ produced results, which showed 2-3% less fuel consumption when compared to our previous formula4.

    4 On the road benefit depends on many factors including vehicle type, local conditions and driving style.
