Piston Power HDS oils are quality engine oils formulated to provide lubrication of automotive naturally-aspirated diesel engines,  turbocharged four-stroke diesel engines and petrol engines.


  • Naturally-aspirated and turbocharged four-stroke, heavy-duty diesel engines in the road transport and construction industries and agricultural plant.
  • Lubrication of petrol-engined vehicles in mixed fleets.
  • SAE 10W is for use in hydraulic systems of most mobile plants.

Note: SAE 10W should not be used as an engine oil

Performance Features

  • Good oxidation resistance
    Resists the formation of harmful products of oxidation at high operating temperatures, resulting in cleaner engines, maximum power output and extended engine life
  • Good engine protection
    Effectively contributes towards lowering engine wear between overhauls
  • Good starting performance at low ambient temperatures
    The multigrade viscosity grade provides excellent lubrication at low starting temperatures, reducing wear and extending battery life
