API Pulls Plug on ‘Energy Conserving’
The American Petroleum Institute will discontinue licensing the use of the “Energy Conserving” designation with its API SL and API SM gasoline engine oil categories. This action will be effective Dec. 30, 2016, and does not cover API SN oils that have earned the “Resource Conserving” designation – although they could be on the watch list next.
